In 1986, Walkabout Harnesses designed its first harness for dogs recovering from surgeries and other neurological conditions of the hind quarters.  The Walkabout Harness  support sling lifts a dog or cat and helps them  walk with handles held by the owner.  Two support straps vary in length according to the height of the dog, enabling the pet owner to stand straight up while walking their pet.

          The company has since created the Front Walkabout Harness for supporting front end weaknesses in dogs and cats as well as a combination harness. The Combination Walkabout is a front end and back end harness that provides support to pets with difficulty supporting all four legs. 

          Walkabout also makes custom products for ‘ difficult to fit dogs and cats’, and one of the most common designs is an amputee harness, either front or back end Walkabout, for pets missing one of their legs. 

          To complete our rehabilitative product line is the Walkbelly product, a full torso support harness, the Hoistabout, a light but supportive sling, and our full line of Walkaboots.  In 1990,the Walkaboots were designed to be very lightweight for pets with weight bearing problems. They are hand dipped boots that can be strengthened by additional dip and specially manufactured soles on the top and bottom, for extra strength and durability.

          Veterinarians and Physical Therapists that work with canine rehabilitation know  the Walkabout company knows first hand that these products speed the recovery of most post-op cases. If the standard products available do not fit ,we will obtain the pets dimensions and construct a product that will fit. We make sure that any pet that needs help wil get a product that can restore pet mobility with a Walkabout Harness.


Thank you,

Getting pet insurance is a great idea if you are the type of pet owner that will spare no exnspee if one of your pets becomes ill or gets in an accident. Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI) is the oldest and largest provider of pet insurance in the U.S. and wrote our first policy back in 1982 to television’s Lassie! Since then we’ve seen a lot of other pet insurance companies come and go, but we’ve managed to succeed by providing our customers with the most coverage for the least amount. The costs will depend on a number of factors any extras you might like to add such as cancer riders, wellness coverage, etc. You can get a quick and easy quote on our website and you would also qualify for a 5% multi-pet discount.To give you an idea of how pet insurance works, this would be the process if you were to file a claim with VPI:1. Visit Any Veterinarian you can visit any licensed veterinarian worldwide. Simply pay for treatment at the time of service.2. Submit Your Claim Fax or mail your claim form along with your invoices.3. Receive Reimbursement After meeting your policy’s deductible, you are reimbursed according to your plan’s benefit schedule allowance or the eligible invoice amount, whichever is less.With veterinary medicine becoming more advanced, it is also becoming more expensive, and many pet owners struggle with paying the resulting bills. With pet insurance, you still pay the bill, but you are then reimbursed a portion of the costs. VPI reimburses based on a benefit schedule which takes the guesswork out of figuring out what’s covered by telling exactly how much will be covered for any condition or accident. I hope that helps and good luck! Was this answer helpful?
