Leia, a Yellow Labrador, lost her ability to stand and walk on all 4 legs due to a spinal cord problem in her neck. Dr. Lane utilized magnetic resonance imaging of her neck (cervical spine) to diagnose Leia’s problem, a spinal tumor. Spinal Tumor Resection was performed to remove as much of the tumor as possible. A week following surgery she was placed into a quad wheelchair offered as a loaner by Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology.  Leia was so weak she had initial difficulty holding her head up for more than a couple minutes. Because of this case, Doggon’ Wheels will add chin rests on future quad wheelchairs.

Each day Leia gained strength in all four of her legs. Her mom took the quad wheelchair home to help in her recovery. Leia only needed the wheelchair for a little over a week, as she improved quickly, no longer needing the extra support to walk. Leia’s recovery demonstrates how valuable wheelchair carts can be in the rehabilitation process.

Chopper, a Yellow Labrador Retriever came to see Dr. Lane because he was weak in his hind limbs. Diagnosed with a bone tumor in his right hind leg, surgery was not an option. As Chopper’s walks became shorter, his mom wondered what else she could do to help him. Hesitantly, Chopper’s mom decided to try a rear support cart provided by Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology. She was nervous that he might not like the cart and even if he did, her concern was how much benefit would it really bring him and for how long? The expense of the wheelchair cart was also a factor that was considered. Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology provided Chopper with a loaner cart. Chopper’s mom quickly noticed a change. Chopper was able to go on long walks again, his tail was wagging more and he was able to play with other dogs at the park. Chopper is now walking at least 1 mile each day. The quality of life this cart provides is evident.
