51 years of experience with our own Veterinary Orthopedic Specialty Hospital gives us the knowledge to give your pet the highest level of medical care. Evaluating your pets health needs is our top concern in determining which of our pet mobility products would be most beneficial.
Multiple Support Options. One Product.
K9 Carts is dedicated to providing multiple support options for your pet. Each K9 wheelchair can be converted between multiple support options depending on your pets exact needs - even if they change over time.
Handmade with Care. Never Mass Produced.
One wheelchair does not fit all. Each pet is different, so care and attention is given to every cart we build. Our wheelchairs are also adjustable in height, length, and width for a guaranteed fit - every time.
Lightest Wheelchair Available. Weight Does Matter.
At K9 Carts we have gone to great lengths to ensure our wheelchairs are as light weight as possible. Lightweight and perfect balance are extremely important when considering a wheelchair for your pet.
This two-wheeled dog cart is designed for dogs and cats with rear limb weakness. Excellent for post-surgery rehabilitation. This Wheelchair is especially effective for dogs suffering from degenerative myelopathy and disc disease. Your pet should walk strongly with its front legs when using the towel test, and the desire to be active.
K9 Carts Extra-Supportive dog cart is similar to our Standard model, but with a front extension kit, which gives support to the front limbs. Example: when your pet can walk with the front legs, but has some weakness when using the towel test. The front wheels are casters and are used for guiding the cart. This cart will allow pets with some weakness in the front legs to continue to be mobile. It is only recommended for pets with moderate strength in the front limbs.
Extra Supportive Wheelchair
The K9 Carts Fully-Supportive dog cart is for dogs that require support in all four limbs; used when your pet is unable to walk with its front legs during the towel test. and must be supported in both the front and rear.K9 Carts Fully-Supportive 4-wheeled dog cart aids with rehabilitation by keeping your pet in a standing position, allowing for physical therapy and range-of-motion exercises on all four limbs. In many cases, our Fully-Supportive wheelchair can assist and speed up the rehabilitative process, often returning pets to full mobility.
Fully Supportive Wheelchair

Our rental program is designed to give your pet all of the benefits of a K9 Carts wheelchair without having to pay the full purchase price.
The rental time frame is divided into two week increments; with the first rental period beginning when you receive your wheelchair.
The K9 Carts Rental Program has a built-in “Rent-To-Own” option--meaning 100% of your rental fee is put toward the purchase price of the wheelchair should you choose to keep it.
Forelimb Strength & the Towel Test
If you have a small dog or cat we suggest you take an old towel, cut two holes in it, and place the legs through the holes. Remembering to keep the back level, see if your pet will walk normally. This action simulates our cart support system. If you have a large dog, a towel under each hind leg is an easier way to do the towel test.
Benefits of the Rental Program:
Minimal cost & adjustable time frame: The rental program allows the use of our wheelchair on a flexible time frame for a substantial reduction in upfront cost.
Temporary mobility before and after surgery: It has been shown that maintaining body and limb alignment while allowing pets to ambulate in our wheelchair encourages return to function faster; and in the case of surgery performed on one limb, can prevent additional surgery that may result from stress being placed on the healthy limb.
Trial use of wheelchair: We realize that you may be doubtful as to whether your pet will adapt to a wheelchair and therefore would like to rent-to-own instead of purchasing.
Can my dog urinate and defecate while in a K9 Cart?
Yes, absolutely. Our support system allows male and female dogs to urinate and defecate while in their cart.
Is the K9 Cart the only pet wheelchair designed by an Orthopedic Veterinarian?
Yes, the K9 Cart is the only wheelchair designed and tested within the Veterinary field by an Orthopedic Surgeon.
Other companies have said their wheelchairs are “... the ONLY Fully Adjustable Dog Wheelchair”, Is this true?
No. All of K9 Carts dog wheelchairs are fully adjustable in height, width and length.
What kinds of health issues can a K9 Carts wheelchair be helpful for?
Our carts have been proven to help animals with hip and leg problems including Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), hip dysplasia, arthritis, paralysis, slipped disc, soreness, spinal and neurological problems, and surgical rehabilitaion--in some cases, even leading a pet to a full recovery.
Do you make wheelchairs for cats and other animals?
Yes, the K9 Cart works equally as well on cats and dogs. As owners of a Veterinary Orthopedic Animal Hospital, we’ve been fortunate enough to provide mobility to cats, rabbits, chickens, raccoons and a host of other critters. Please contact us for more information.
One company claims that they “... Invented the Adjustable Dog Wheelchair”.
Is this true?
No. K9 Carts invented the adjustable dog wheelchair in 1961.

Wila is a great dog who’s owners wrote us telling us how much their dog loved her new K9 Carts pet wheelchair. Apparently, not only did “Wild Wyla” take to her new set of wheels right away, she almost immediately began setting land speed records throughout her neighborhood; racing around, making quite a scene.
Well, one afternoon, all that commotion got the attention of local law enforcement, who upon seeing the crazed canine’s disregard for posted speed limits, ‘pulled over’ Wild Wyla for a real-life TRAFFIC STOP!
In the end, Wild Wyla was let go with just a warning, and the friendly police officer was kind enough to allow his photo to be taken with the alleged perpetrator (shown here). Special thanks to Wyla’s owner for the photos and to the fine men and women of Wyla’s local area law enforcement.
