This cart was purchased and only used for a few short “test drives”. All total it was used for less than one hour. It is a new chair. It was purchased after renting a cart from a more local company and deciding that Eddie’s Wheels, while more expensive, offers a higher quality product.
We’re told by Eddie’s that this would be a good fit for a dog around 50 lbs, including border collies and small boxers (with some adjustments for length). It is the cart Eddie’s suggests for dogs with Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) and a very popular choice within the DM community since it is high quality and sturdy chair that can adjust as dogs decline. We ordered it for a dog losing function in his hind quarters due to a tumor on his spine and late effects of radiation treatment. This particular chair is made to keep weight off of the shoulders (neutral/counterbalance) and to adjust as a dog’s needs change (as they decline/improve in function). Although this cart was made for a male dog, some females can use a male saddle, it just depends on where they sit in it. (It is important that the dog can pee without getting it on the saddle.) Males can really only use male saddles for Eddie’s Wheels chairs.
Please find detailed info on how to measure on the Eddie’s Wheels website and/or phone them for more info. This is a rear wheel cart. ***Before final purchase, PLEASE double check you are measuring correctly and for the correct cart. THIS IS THE BUYER’S RESPONSIBILITY and I want your dog to be safe and comfortable.***
The cart can be adjusted to fit a range of sizes. The following are our dog’s measures that the cart was made to fit. Potential buyers will need to check their dog’s measurements, and, according to Eddie’s, will need their dogs numbers for C and E to be the same or slightly smaller. If they are larger for C and E, the cart will not fit. The other measurements have more room to adjust.
A 20 1/2
B 16 1/2
C 5 1/2
D 14 1/2
E 7 1/8, 8 1/8, 7
Eddie’s Wheels says you should be able to make adjustments yourself, but you can also send it or bring it in to them to do adjustments if you prefer. I have the tools and instructions that came with the cart. You can call Eddie’s and send photos during your adjustment process. I even sent a video when we were trying to get our dog to take to the cart. They’ve been very supportive as I’ve explored what to do with the cart as we no longer have a need. They’ve offered their support to any new owner. They want to be very sure the cart is being used properly and fits well, as do I. Poorly made or improperly fitted carts can injure a dog. The cart will only go to a family who I feel confident will follow up with Eddie’s at the very least with photos or video for proper fitting.
