Will a Pet Stroller Help Your Pet Recover?

HappyDogFor humans, having a positive mental attitude has been shown to increase recovery time after an injury or a surgery. Having a negative attitude may mean we feel depressed, hopeless or cynical about our potential to return to our former state of good health. People in this state of mind tend to detach themselves emotionally from the situation and don’t make much effort to get better.

What do we tell a person who feels like this? We encourage them to do what they can, get outside for some fresh air, take a walk and talk with friends and family. We can make the leap and say this type of phenomenon also occurs in pets.  Pets rely on humans to nurse them back to health.

Recovering dogs need to get outside and visit with friends, even if only with human friends, in order to keep up their spirits. In many cases, physically moving is an important part of the recovery process from an injury or surgery. Fresh air and a cool breeze are key to a positive attitude. PZ 1stclass yellow

Getting your dog outside is easy with the use of a pet stroller. Many people use pet strollers in their everyday lives with their dog or dogs, while others use one temporarily in situations such as following an injury or surgery. Pet strollers have a lined and padded cabin floor, for the comfort of a recovering pet. They have strong suspensions systems so your pet feels safe while the stroller is moving. Many pet strollers have large, air-filled tires which provide a smooth ride, especially over uneven terrain. dr novel dog stroller

There are many strollers that are designed so your dog can stick his head out during the ride. Strollers that ride closer to the ground are optimal for the injured pet due to the lower center of gravity. There is a pet stroller suitable for just about any immobile pet.

It is a very quick procedure to get your Pet Gear AT3 stroller on the road. The stroller comes folded up and you must attach the wheels. First you push each back wheel onto the axle until it locks in place. Each back wheel has a lock and release button that is to face the outside of the stroller. To attach the front wheel, you need to push the tubing into the front posts until the velco pins pop out of the holes. The front wheel can swivel or you can push the pin in, above the wheel, so the wheel is locked for jogging.

To unfold the Pet Gear AT3, you release the folding latch on the side, spread the handle and the seat apart until both sides of the frame lock in place. To fold up the pet stroller, make sure to unzip the stroller and open the canopy. Next, slide the second frame lock release to the right, while squeezing the main frame lock release rotate the folding mechanism almost 180 degrees forward until stroller releases and handle is lowered. Then fold over the closing latch to keep the stroller in the folded position.

When parking the stroller, be sure to put on the brake located in the rear of the stroller. The brake is easily engaged with your toe and then released by lifting the brake lever upward with your toe.

Making sure the wheels are free of debris will keep your AT3 rolling smoothly. Releasing the wheels and lubricating with WD-40 or a light machine oil is all that is necessary to ensure top performance out of the 12 inch EVA tires.


The sporty canopy can be zippered or left open for maximum visibility. There is an internal safety leash in case you have a pet who likes to escape. The mesh sides do provide a good view from all directions. You can choose a front or rear entry for your pet and the padded floor is comfortable for sitting, standing, or lying down. The AT3 has sturdy shock absorbers creating a smooth ride for your pet.
