Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchairs frequently play a role in a dog's rehabilitative therapy, and we love to hear reports from our customers when their dogs no longer need to use a dog wheelchair because they have begun walking on their own again.
Now, there is hope that a new drug currently in development could prevent many dogs with spinal cord injuries from suffering long term paralysis. The experimental drug currently being tested at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences is called Illomostat. If administered within hours after a dog suffers an injury, it can work to prevent long term paralysis.

Dog wheelchairs, such as the Walkin' Wheels, are also available to assist dogs with limited mobility resulting from degenerative conditions, amputations, rehabilitation and other injuries or illnesses.
