Oxford, MD (PressExposure) July 29, 2009 -- K-9 Cart Company East has been designing, building, and perfecting their dog carts for 45 years and owns the patent on the only dog wheelchair designed and tested by a Veterinary Orthopedic Surgeon. K-9 Carts are recommended by more vets than any other design on the market!
âThe majority of unsuccessful wheelchair fittings are the results of poor measurementsâ, says Dr. Lincoln Parkes, CEO of http://www.k-9cart.com. âOur new website creates a fool proof way to make sure you get a dog cart that fits and more importantly, one that your dog will be comfortable in.â
What makes K-9 Cart Company East stand out among the many other dog cart companies is that Dr. Parkes personally oversees the creation of each and every dog cart, providing personal attention to each customerâs unique situation. K-9 Cart Company East is the only manufacturer of dog wheelchairs which allows every customer to benefit from the experience of an award winning orthopedic surgeon.
Dr. Parkes opened the first veterinary orthopedic specialty practice in the U.S. and has performed over 3000 spinal surgeries in his career!
The latest patented design from K-9 Cart Company East uses a fully adjustable lightweight aluminum frame. This allows the customer to fine tune the fit once they have received their cart. This flexibility is critical to ensuring a comfortable fit for the handicapped pet. K-9 Cart Company East patented wheelchairs are ordered by pet lovers and pet organization from around the globe. Customers on the east coast have an extra benefit in that they can visit Dr. Parkes and his team for both the design & the final fitting of their new dog wheelchair.
Special attention is made in the assembly of the dog cart to achieve proper balance. Carts are available that address front, rear or total limb mobility issues. In addition to the lightweight frame, their dog carts use closed-cell foam padding for comfort and easy cleaning. EVA foam-filled tires, with heavy tread that will never go flat, help the receiving animal maneuver over countless terrains.
Unlike other dog wheelchairs on the market, these dog carts are available with a detachable leg sling for easy entry into the cart or can be used alone as a handheld sling. This makes entry and exit from the dog cart simple; there is no cumbersome harnesses needed, which make it difficult to get the pet in or out of other types of dog carts.
The new website also gives customers a forum to talk to other pet owners whose pets have mobility issues. Dogs arenât the only petâs who have benefited from a cart made by K-9 Cart Company East! Because each cart is custom made, Dr. Parkes has given mobility back to dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, skunks, ducks, geese, sheep, chickens, and even an opossum!
