What’s Up with the Help ‘Em Up Harness?!
The Help ‘Em Up Harness is a unique full-body lifting device that assists owners with aging dogs remain active when arthritis, hip dysplasia, muscle loss, or surgical repair impairs a pet’s mobility and physical strength for every day functions – from getting up off the floor, up and down the stairs, or in and out of cars.
Veterinarians, neurologists and nurses use the harness for dogs rehabilitating after surgery or recovering from injuries. By placing a handle over the hips, and the shoulders, the Help ‘Em Up safely lifts from underneath the torso allowing you to help your dog get up, along with overcoming the daily obstacles of aging and getting around.
It will also help you lift without stress by using the handles on the harness, as the Help ‘Em Up is designed to distribute weight over the large surfaces of the chest and hind quarters. Veterinarians, surgeons, nurses and rehab therapists find this product as a useful aid to help their patients be lifted more comfortably post-surgery and to help them rehabilitate more easily.
Choosing the Right Help ‘Em Up Harness
The Help ‘Em Up Harness comes in five sizes: X-Small, Small, Medium, Large and X-Large and can fit dogs from 4.5 to 102 kilos.
Determining the proper size of harness is based primarily on the weight of your dog. We look more closely at a dog’s dimensions (neck, chest and waist measurements) if a dog is on the cusp of two different sizes. In most cases, we would recommend to size down.
