"Toby is our 5 yr old red dapple doxie weighing 19 lbs. He had injured his back in October. He was unable to stand or use his back legs. We took him to the Clinic within 12 hours of the symptoms. Toby was given anti-inflammatory and pain medication. Total confinement was the call for a 30 day minimum and possibly 6-8months with surgery if no improvement. My wife and I went home with little hope of recovery. We understood the confinement but how were we going to assist with Toby's daily bathroom trips? What we came up with was a real simple solution. My wife made a device that allowed us to carry Toby out and assist him when he needed to both urinate and defecate.The device allowed us to support his weight and minimize his movements with no discomfort to Toby. We kept him more in the device than in the crate. We could hang him up on the patio or a tripod I had placed in the yard. the device also allowed for him to use his back legs and as he improved we could let him bare more of his own weight. We took Toby back for a visit 2 weeks after his injury and the Veterinarians (4 in this clinic) were absolutely stunned and amazed at the device and the progress Toby had made. Toby is now on his own and running again with his friends. We have submitted for a patent at the instance of our veterinarians. The device will soon be made available but for now we are just wanting to help others. "
