I've used the company for years. The owner, Schon Gross, is great. I've not used their flagship product, but Schon helped me with other products to help Mandy. PM me if you'd like more info.

Our surgeon recommended it when we had Python's leg (front right) amputated and I kind of brushed it off but then she got an infection and her wound opened. Flash forward to 5 weeks post-amp today and I wish we had just gotten the dog leggs for her. It would have kept pressure on the site and probably minimized our trips to the emergency vet when she got her cone off and removed the bandage herself...

 

Hind-sight!

I do so wish someone would make a complete prosthetic leg that can be used on a leg amputation.

 

We put a t-shirt or boxer shorts (depending on the leg) on ours following amputation if needed. Thankfully no one has pulled their staples out. (Knock on wood)

 

This is Vallery with her prosthetic from OrthoPets in Denver, CO. Part of her foot was amputated due to a racing injury.

Then God sent the Greyhound to live among man and remember. And when the Day comes,

God will call the Greyhound to give Testament, and God will pass judgment on man.

My grey Socks got pressure sores on her hip and shoulder of her good side, just after her amputation. She had her right front leg amputated. I was worried to death that they would get infected. Thankfully they never did. I looked at the link and I wonder if I should try this out on her since she still loves to lay on hard surfaces.

Even though we're past the worst of Python's amputation recovery I am seriously considering getting this since we do have hard floors in our house that do feel good to lay on on those hot days :)

 

Semi-related: I think it's just a great idea that someone could come up with this, a harness certainly didn't work for us (and I'm sure you experienced the same) since there weren't two front legs to keep it in place! Maybe something like this would have given her some comfort when moving around just from the compression.

I'm glad you are past the worst of the recovery, but you are right to consider tools that may help in the future. Schon will work with you to get the right product for Python. She has other products that are not on the website and can do custom work. She will also refer you if she doesn't have or can't make what you need. An Irish Wolfhound who used to live in my neighborhood was one of her models -- he had huge swollen elbows and her product helped relieve the pressure and pain.

Schon Gross is no longer at DogLeggs, she can be reached at her new company, Phoenix Design Solutions, www.phoenixdesignsolutionsllc.com or call at 703 715 0333.

She is very knowledgeable and committed to the well being of our best friends. She helped me out just last week. I trust her with my guys.
