:Lucky got his Eddie's Wheels cart from CorgiAid 2 days ago! He can even play ball again. YEAH! There is a YAHOO group that has been very helpful to me, and would be to anyone needing info on DM or IVDD corgis and carts...wheeled corgis.

I asked last week in general discussion about carts and had a couple of answers before finding this group...thanks! I am home from my surgery and can now concentrate on Lucky again. Lucky was paralyzed and had surgery 4 years ago. He did walk again, dragging his hind legs. We built a ramp last year so he could get up the steps - this would work with a cart Shannon, if you haven't gotten one yet - my friend's father came up it with his walker. Today I watched him slide down the ramp to potty and unable to get up from lying down, and realize it is time to get serious about wheels. Corgiaid has not answered my request so I guess I will try some of the websites you all recommend. Thank you!

Sorry, I never tried lifting him in the cart. It was pretty easy to get him in and out of the cart. You might be able to though. It's not heavy but it might be awkward and clumsy.

Thanks Gail! I wanted to msg you privately, and I didn't want to bring up any painful memories, but it sounded like you had some real experience with this. It's really rather difficult to find experiential resources out there. For all that corgis are susceptible to this problem, there are a lot more doxie owners who talk about it. And doxies are a different thing being so much smaller and all. The worst thing for us (besides worrying about him and the obvious) is the wheelbarrowing and what it does to our backs. We were also hoping the wheelchair would help us with that while making him more mobile. Can you lift the dog in it say, down a couple of steps?

Shannon...the wheels we used for Cobi were from eddieswheels and before we ordered we had to measure him as directed on their website so it is custom fit to your dog. It is also very lightweight. The first time we put Cobi in it we made sure to have treats ready and his favorite thing to do which was playing fetch and he took right to it. He hadn't had surgery though.

We're looking into getting Aber a wheelchair now. Our surgeon never bothered to mention it would be quite good for his recovery and thus I always thought it was the last resort when the dog could no longer walk. I did a lot of research last night and it seems like a great thing for him either way--it will help stabilize his spine and body while he regains use of his legs and, if he never does, it will give him permanent mobility.

We are thinking of using eddieswheels but were wondering if anyone had experiences they could share and any advice for what to look for in making such an investment. I want him to be comfortable and secure in it, and I also need something that I can lift.

New here. My corgi doesn't have wheels and we're hoping he can walk again, but he had back surgery 11/09 and he's still not able to walk. Hoping to get some tips, moral support, and the like from other people with special needs corgis. It's so hard to find things to help him since they just aren't built like other dogs. We tried the Bottoms Up harness--his little legs just stuck straight out!

Sorry, I should have updated this page....sadly Cobi went to doggie heaven on March 17th 2009. He is now pain free and happily chasing tennis balls without the use of wheels. gail

Cobi's wheels came from eddieswheels.com. Other sources are: doggon.com, handicappedpets.com & k9-carts.com. Good luck to you.
