GingerLead is a soft, padded belly sling with a leash & handle to help dogs with weak hind legs walk. It's ideal for dogs needing some short-term assistance with their balance or mobility in cases like recovering from knee, hip or back injuries/ surgeries.
HK$520 to HK$650
The GingerLead dog sling has a soft inner lining, where it comes into contact with your dog’s skin or fur, and a durable exterior. It is easily used by passing the support sling under the belly and bringing the straps, which extend from each end of the support sling, together with the attached padded handle.
For additional control, a leash extends from the handle and connects to your dog’s collar or chest harness with a snap hook, just like any other leash. The straps that extend from the support sling and the leash are adjustable. The leash is also detachable.
GingerLead dog slings are available in all sizes for small to large breed dogs and are machine washable. Our male support pad, which contains a cutout, is available in small and tall sizes. Male GingerLeads may also be used with female dogs.
GingerLead is recommended by veterinarians, veterinary orthopaedic surgeons and veterinary rehabilitation therapists as a post-operative or post-injury recovery sling, to help rehabilitate pets after surgically repaired hips or stifles (knees) or during rehabilitation from injury to back or legs. It also helps to provide rear support and stability for elderly dogs with weak hind legs for short-term uses, for example, when walking upstairs.
Adjusting the GingerLead
The GingerLead is adjustable to fit various sizes of dogs and owners.
Sliders, attached to the straps on each side of the support pad, allow the straps to be lengthened or shortened. Position the sliders at the same location on each side of the support pad to keep the strap length the same on both sides. The handle moves along one strap. The slider feeds through the handle when needed. Once adjusted, slide the handle to the top.
Shorten or lengthen the leash through the plastic buckle that attaches to the handle. A strap clip slides along the leash to hold the loose end.
