Helping Dogs With Arthritis
Did you know that osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of hip pain in dogs? One in five dogs suffers from hip pain according to veterinarians. This hip pain can make it difficult for your dog to get in and out of your truck or SUV. If you take your dog fishing, to the dog park, to the pet store or even for their veterinary checkup, getting them in and out of your vehicle more easily is something you’ve likely considered.
TWISTEP® is a revolutionary new product that is helping dogs with arthritis get into and out of vehicles more easily. TWISTEP® is an instant, multi-use step that helps your dog get in and out of your SUV or truck more easily. It attaches to the hitch receiver of your vehicle and then stores under the bumper when not in use.
Unlike ramps, with TWISTEP® there’s no time consuming set up required. There are no heavy, awkward or muddy items that you have to stow in the back cargo area of your vehicle. And importantly, you won’t need to lift your dog into the truck any longer.
You’ll be able to comfortably hold your dog’s leash in one hand and turn the TWISTEP® forward to allow your dog to get into your vehicle without jumping.
