55 A great find for our old English Setter with hip dysplasia.
Verified Purchase

By on 6 July 2017

We bought the large size and it fits quite well. Easy to clean, well made. It has certainly given our old man a new lease of life, and has meant we've had a few more weeks or perhaps months with him. We leave it on him all the time and he doesn't seem to notice he's wearing it. He's enjoying his short walks and ambles around the garden. Pooing and peeing is easy too. We would recommend this product.

55 Quality of life
Verified Purchase

This is marvellous item that has given my dog a new lease of life. For a couple of months he's been struggling with walking as his back leg muscles have slowly deteriorated. As soon as the support arrived we took it for a test run and he was running down the street in no time. It's really made a huge difference even if we only have him for a short while longer, at least his last days will be enjoyable.

Needed to get a support harness for our dog who had cancer diagnosed in his rear leg and was finding walking difficult. Viovet had a very suitable one online, it arrived quickly and did the job well.

55 We would have been lost without it!
Verified Purchase

By on 6 March 2016

We purchased the Handy Canis Helping Hand For Dogs for our Cockapoo - Holly, who suffered a spinal injury. It has been invaluable, helping to support her safely and securely underneath as a replacement for the "towel walking method" the vet showed us. Her recovery has come in leaps and bounds with this product. The vet was impressed with it, saying the design will help to increase the blood supply to the affected legs.

The design does not prevent her toileting habits in any way and we are able to walk her with the lead extended to the correct height for us, meaning no bending and aching backs. The product fits snugly and securely with the aid of Velcro pads and clips and is easy to get on and off.

We couldn't recommend this highly enough. Holly loves it and knows it means "walkies" and so do we.
