Support Sling by DISA – it’s all about giving your hound a leg up during IVDD recovery.

Designed and handcrafted by dachshund owners for dachshunds featuring a suede backing and cuddly fleece lining (against the belly).  They simply slip around your dog’s girth, slide back to the rear legs to provide comfortable pelvic support.  The straps are webbing and fully adjustable to save the backs of owners and hounds alike!

2 widths – Unisex style
6cm for girls
5cm for boys & smaller girls.
NB:  The narrower band is designed for boys to accommodate “willy” room.
NBB: If you need a sling for a heavier dog who is also a “puller” please contact us for pricing for a custom made sling to suit your requirements.

Description

It’s not uncommon for Dachshunds to become very weak or paralysed following an IVDD episode.  Some may not be able to move their legs at all and others may be able to move their hind legs but unable to take proper steps (drunk walking)

Without any assistance, these dogs either fall or drag their hind legs along the ground when trying to walk.  It’s not advisable to let your dog drag itself along.  Firstly, dragging can injure the skin where it scrapes along the ground.  Secondly, your dog will find it very hard to walk properly again once it’s got into the habit of dragging itself along.

A good way to learn to walk is to be given some physical support while attempting to walk.  By doing this you are keeping your dog out of harm’s way and also re-training the action of walking.  PS:  don’t forget sure you pop your dog on a lead as well to control your hound’s enthusiasm!
