Global Pet Expo 2017: Walkin’ Wheels WheelChair Now Offered In Mini
When you attend any Global Pet Expo trade show, you get an indepth look at what the future of pet care will be. With pets living longer, there are more products being introduced for senior animals. Just one of these innovations is the Mini Walkin’ Wheels Pet Wheelchair. It offers pet parents of mini/toy breeds an option when their pooch has walking difficulties.
Based on it’s big brother version, the Walkin’ Wheels Dog Wheelchair, it’s a fully adjustable wheelchair made for pets who are two to 10 pounds (cats included) and comes in three mini sizes. Unlike many assistant devices, adjusting it to fit your pet is quick and easy, thanks to its lightweight aluminum construction.
Mark Robinson, founder and President of Walkin’ Pets, says that larger breeds often had assisting devices because back leg/hip issues are more common in those dogs. Toy and mini breeds are becoming more popular, and his company, HandicappedPets.com, realized the need for smaller wheelchairs to accommodate them, as well as cats and other small animals.
Robinson says the appeal of the Mini Walkin’ Wheels is convenience for your pet. When you need it, you want it then–and as an off-the shelf, adjustable product, it can be shipped to you and your pet the same day it’s ordered. There are only two measurements that are needed to couple with the pet’s weight and breed, and it’ll fit like a dream.
The wheelchair is currently being offered at a special introductory price of $179 and can be ordered online.
Often pet parents with disabled or aging pets turn to euthanasia because it is difficult to ensure a quality of life for their pet, and Robinson says the Mini Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair will be life-changing for toy/mini breed pets and their parents.
