The best bits...
Strong nylon support straps
To fit, place with the cut out area (a) facing forward, introduce your dogs hind legs into the appropriate holes (fig. 1).
Make sure that the support strap (b) is free to pass over the hindquarters.
Draw the Helping Hand up your dog's legs until it can be wrapped around the hindquarters (fig. 2). Then close the Velcro fasteners (c).
Check that it is properly fitted (with male dogs check that the urinary orifice is free) before fastening the straps (fig. 3).
Take the support strap and lift your dog's hindquarters to ensure that he/she is comfortable, before proceeding with gentle exercise.
Note: Discuss the use of the Helping Hand with your veterinary surgeon and take appropriate advice on fitting and exercise.
Our helping hands will help your recovering dog to maneuver more easily and independently. It enables the handler to take much of the weight off the hind legs whilst allowing the front legs to function normally. This allows the dog to exercise which will aid circulation during a convalescent period.
Ideal for provigding effective support for dogs after surgery or treatment for spinal disorders.
