    darjeb, definitely check out and talk to these folks! http://www.eddieswheels.com/
    they have excellent, affordable, light chairs or should i say, WALKERS. using their style of walker, or “wheels” as they call them, the dog can still use his back legs if the want to, and even go to the bathroom while wearing it! the walker allows the dog to build muscle tone in the legs, using them as much as they care to, without putting the full body weight on the legs and straining damaged joints. people sometimes even just use them for super safe physical therapy after joint surgeries or spine trauma. i spoke with them myself on the phone extensively and they are incredibly knowledgeable in all regards to conditions, effective therapies, alternative medicine, good vets, etc. they have youtube vids of dogs using their walkers too so you can see the dogs go go goooooooooo! check em out, really! πŸ˜€

    THAT’S the one I was thinking about, and couldn’t for the life of me remember their name!…Gah! getting old is the pits…. πŸ˜†

        Maybe I should direct my parents to sites like these.

        Pixie, the dog my parents have had since I was probably 8 or 9, is now 12 and having major hip problems. She has trouble getting up anymore due to her arthritis, and sometimes, even the meds don’t help. It got so bad, that at a point last winter, they were considering euthanization, because they had to carry her down the stairs out our back door to go to the bathroom in the yard!

        She got better when spring came, but I’m kinda worried for next year, another year, another winter, another time of immense pain for my childhood furbaby.

        And since mom is home all the time, maybe that would help her move around quite a bit… hmmm….
