A full suspension cart takes the pet’s feet completely off of the ground. These carts are best suited to the pets with rear leg
A walking model allows the pet to put his feet down on the ground and use them to walk. The cart acts as a support for the rear end weight. This is especially helpful in cases of rear limb weakness. They work very well for dysplastic dogs, dogs with Degenerative Myelopathy and those dogs with IVDD who are just starting to walk again.
We DO NOT recommend a walking model if your pet is knuckling his feet or crossing his rear legs. Also not recommended for dogs who are not yet making the “walking” motions with the rear legs. These cases will get friction sores from dragging and will do much better if started off in a full suspension model. Both of our cart models can be easily converted to the other when needed.
