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.

We have 2 black lab dogs that have arthritis and need help getting into our truck . Right now we lift them in but this looks like a much easier idea.
It definitely is!
Clever idea to help aging dogs. I like it!
It definitely is!
We’ve always had to carry a ramp along with us to help our dogs in and out of our SUV. This would be much better.
It definitely would be better!
What a great product for our pets afflicted with arthritis. I carried my Yorkie up and down the stairs for years since he had it in his hips. I can imagine it’s very difficult for larger dogs and glad more products like these are being developed to address the need.
I agree, Deb. This is a great idea!
TWISTEP is a wonderful idea and I am so glad they have items like this to help pets. I have arthritis so I know how hard it is to live with that.
It’s definitely a challenge for people and pets!
Luckily, Roxi is small enough that we can pick her up when she just can’t make the jump. We don’t have a truck that we could use this with, but it is definitely something I will keep in mind when we get our next vehicle, which at this point, isn’t yet, but we have already decided to get an SUV.
It definitely would work with an SUV too!
This would be great for my moms older dogs!
I’m sure it would!
Something like this would be good for our lab in a few years.
It’s a great solution!
Twistep is an awesome product! This would help my Lucy out so much! Thank you!
