Older Basset Hound If your dog has a temporary injury, or a chronic problem with movement of his legs, including dog arthritis, hip dysplasia, or muscle degeneration, he will need your assistance to move about. In such cases we recommend a ComfortLift Carrier to help your pet walk up and down stairs, walk outside to use the bathroom, or board a vehicle. You can also use it just to help him get to his feet, should he become sick or be overweight. Your veterinarian will always be the best to ask about your particular pet's problem.

How to use:

  1. Place the lambswool padded part of the sling under your dog.

  2. Adjust the two harness straps to fit snugly around your pet's torso and connect the snap clasps.

  3. Grab the support handles, give your pet a verbal command to "stand," and then coax him gently to a standing position. Be firm, but gentle.

  4. You can then walk together, allowing your pet to set the pace. Keep the distance short. Recovering pets will be able to add time and distance with each day.
