see how small her stump is?

My 12 year old amputee is now starting to need help going up and down stairs, getting up and furniture and just generally slowing down.


I have read up on the Ruff Wear Harness, but it has now hind end support, also Ruff Wear makes a different harness that can go around the back legs for a more centered lift. But I gather from my readings that her stump is not big enough to work with that one.

There is one kind that is just like a rear end sling but the handle aren't adjustable.

Any suggestions?

@ Drew. I don't have the $$$$$ first off, so that's a no go for me, and for all the time I spend watching the Animal Planet, you would have thought there would have been something! I think my best bet is to try the Ruffwear Harness and see how it works. thanks JLH

sounds weird but have you ever considered contacting a human prosthetic maker to have a chat about designing a one off special harness for you those people are tenacious and im sure they could help you out best of luck.
