746 viewsArthritis

Hello all, my 10 yr old rescue dog is a mix retriever mix (large breed) and severely arthritic everywhere. She has been treated for 2 years. I have to get a new car. Which car do you recommend is best, in case she needs to be transported, pls? Thanks

Hi Coach Scientist,


I agree with everything Kathryn and Lynsey have said. A good sized boot and boot sill that is easy to fit a ramp or some steps up against are good considerations. Transporting your dog in a secured crate in the car, that is big enough to take a supportive bed that they can fully stretch out on, can also reduce the amount of holding, bracing and un-balancing that occurs on a car journey.


Kind wishes,
