After a few hours at emergency care he still could not walk with his hind legs. After care at Hospital was completed he was sent home with strict orders of only going outside to relieve himself then back in for complete rest for 2 weeks. Orders were to sling him while he walks. That was completely back breaking for US. While he was in emergency care I was googling this product, ordered it and was waiting impatiently for it to be delivered (it only took 2 days).

I would give more stars if possible. Happy to say our pup also has recovered quite well so it helped him too. … more

    Lifter broke

    By on

    This worked so well for our 60 pound lab. Every night we would use it to get her down the steps to our bedroom. We received this lifter at the end of may 2020. Unfortunately it broke a month ago. It came apart at one of the seems where it is sewed. At the part where it goes around the breast of the dog. Fortunately our dog did not have any injuries, but she did slide down 6-7 steps before landing at the bottom.

    PERFECTION!

    By on

    Our German Shepherd mix, Fancy, is close to turning 14 years old. She was recently diagnosed with Cutaneous Lymphoma, which, for her, has been rapid and aggressive. Immediately upon diagnosis, she suffered an event caused by the lesions on her brain, which has left her with unresolved vestibular issues. We chose not to pursue traditional cancer treatment due to her age and condition. That left us with trying to maintain quality of life for her and keeping her comfortable. She still has her personality, her appetite, and her will to live. Our biggest challenge was coming up with a way to support her mobility. She can't rise on her own, remain standing on her own, or walk more than 2-3 steps on Our German Shepherd mix, Fancy, is close to turning 14 years old. She was recently diagnosed with Cutaneous Lymphoma, which, for her, has been rapid and aggressive. Immediately upon diagnosis, she suffered an event caused by the lesions on her brain, which has left her with unresolved vestibular issues. We chose not to pursue traditional cancer treatment due to her age and condition. That left us with trying to maintain quality of life for her and keeping her comfortable. She still has her personality, her appetite, and her will to live. Our biggest challenge was coming up with a way to support her mobility. She can't rise on her own, remain standing on her own, or walk more than 2-3 steps on her own. While relieving herself, she relies on us to support her full weight. We scrambled to come up with a quick solution and settled upon using a thick mover's blanket to hold her up. This wasn't a perfect solution, and our backs were telling us that it wasn't sustainable. Her vet recommended euthanasia, and I'd be lying if I said that we didn't strongly consider it. Seeing her suffer simply isn't an option. Thankfully, we decided to give her more time. I jumped on Chewy to see if there was anything we could possibly rig up to allow us to help her. That's when I came across the Kurgo Lifter. I ordered it immediately, and with Chewy's lightning fast shipping, we had it in our hands in what I believe was less than a day. We owe this company so much gratitude for offering a product that has given us precious weeks (so far) with our Fancy that we would not have had otherwise. It is EXACTLY what we needed. We couldn't ask for anything more. Its wide, velcro straps allow the lifter to be used on dogs of different sizes, and it couldn't be simpler to use. Our old gal isn't the greatest with giving us a lot of warning when she needs to go out. With this product, I can have her standing, get the lifter strapped on, and have her heading out the door in 10 seconds or less. It's comfortable for her, its handles are the perfect length for supporting her without having to bend over, and I have zero fear of the stitching failing at the times when we need to support 100% of her weight. I could go on, but I think my point has been made. This product is the reason we have gained so much more time with our girl, instead of having to say goodbye too soon. To those of you reading the reviews and are still on the fence about purchasing it: do it. You have nothing to lose. To Kurgo and Chewy: you have our eternal gratitude for connecting us with this incredibly simple, life changing product. We can't thank you enough! … more

    exactly what i needed

    By on

    My doggie had a meniscus and ACL repair. He cannot bear any weight on his knee for weeks. The vet recommended i use a towel.as a sling - this is soooo much better, and distributes the weight much better. Safer for both him and me. My dog is a bully terrier mix - weighs 60 lbs I recommended the surgeon suggest this for all dogs undergoing ortho surgery. Thank you Chewy for stocking this and for the very prompt delivery.

    Harness size

    By on

    On the size it says one size 40-80lb dogs. When mine came the size says 50-90lbs. It's too big. The 40 would fit him perfectly and I would give it a Def recommend but now I have to return and not sure if they actually have a smaller one size fits all???

    Extremely helpful!!

    By on

    I have a neurologic dog that loses feeling in her legs after she seizes. We were using a towel under her belly to carry her and help her walk and get stable but this is so much more helpful! Highly recommend!!

    It helped Max

    By on

    The Kurgo lifter helps support Max as he maneuvers up stairs. He's not very fond of anything new but he didn't seem to have a problem with this harness. Probably because it is easy to get on and its not cumbersome. He's an old German Shepherd Dog and needs the support.
