Pet Owners Choose Prosthetics to Help Legless Pets

22nd April, 2014
This inspiring YouTube Video, which went viral recently, showed millions of viewers that a dog is still a dog, even with just two legs.  However some veterinarians think the strain put on the dog can cause joint and mobility issues later in life. So doctors have been increasingly turning to prosthetics, including wheelchairs and other mobility devices designed to improve their quality of handicapped dogs’ lives. Orthopets, a company which helps 2,000 animals per year overcome their limitations, says most devices cost between $150 and $2000, but can cost more in some cases. The owners of the dogs in this video, Amanda Giese and Gary Walters, co-founded Panda Paws Rescue, an organization dedicated to supporting the needs of special care and hospice dogs. In the last 19 months alone, they have placed 3500 dogs including 10 which are two-legged. Of those 10, nine are using wheelchairs. Duncan, the star of the video, had his two deformed back legs amputated, and he was not a candidate for artificial limbs or wheels.   Pet Owners Choose Prosthetics to Help Legless Pets обновлено: January 25, 2017 автором: admin_1

I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.

This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
