Can the Support Sling be safely used after surgery?
The Support Sling provides an ideal level of support for post-operative patients. Lessen the weight and pressure on weakened joints by gently supporting your patient’s midsection. This easy-to-use lifting harness can be incorporated into your patient’s at-home recovery plan for supportive walks and assistance.

Can the sling be left on all day?
Each sling is lined with super soft fleece to make it ultra-comfortable for a dog to wear for extended periods. To keep the sling in place and prevent sliding or bunching, use the optional collar attachment. Simply loop the webbing through the collar and attach the clips to the two D-Rings sewn on the Support Sling.
