Our Gillie (ESA-Dog) is now 10 years old and has mild osteoarthritis. For too long she has jumped into our car or been lifted in or out by us.
Now, after veterinary examination (CT, nutrition plan, painkiller prescription) we have become a bit smarter and have gained a sloping ramp. I can say brilliantly. It took Gillie exactly 1 minute to get used to it and now there is no risk of additional damage.
The ramp is very easy to exit and pack up again and hardly takes up space in the car. An ingenious invention. We have waited far too long.
