Princess And Her Pet Wheelchair Cart

Buddy was looking through his mom's blog the other day and ran across a post she did last year about the pet wheelchair cart his sister Princess uses.  Although Princess spends less time in it these days, she going to be turning 14 soon, she still uses her wheelchair as an aid to help her stand when she eats, and also to run around the kitchen in while her mom fixes dinner.  Of course Buddy doesn't really like that Princess can run to get dropped bits of food faster then he can - but he still thinks she looks pretty cute in her cart!

Last fall when our pug Princess got her wheelchair I posted some pictures online and received quite a few questions about her condition and also inquires about the company we used for the chair. 
Princess has both a neurological problem and also issues with her lower spine which has resulted in her not being able to walk on her back legs.  She is in no pain what-so-ever, just turned 13 last month and is still going strong.

We got the wheelchair online from a company called Senior Pet Care Products.  The chair was under $200 and it was made to her specific measurements.  The company was great to work with.  I would definitely recommend them.

Princess uses her chair several times a day for about 20 minutes at a time.  It tires her out, so I don't like to have it her in it too long.  When Princess eats she uses it to help her to stand up, and as you'll see she also "loves" to go outside in it when the weather is nice.

I had forgotten about this video footage I took of her last fall, so when I found it I thought I would share it so that others can see how the chair works and also how happy she is using it.  Go Prin!
