Hey, everyone.

Just wanted to give a solid two paws up to the Help 'Em Up harness.

Our older DS, Kaya (11-12yo rescue), has been having difficulty getting up from lying down and using the stairs. She also has ascites caused by a mass on her liver. I found this product while looking for a "dog carrier" that would not apply pressure to her abdomen.

While a bit pricey ($100 for the medium harness), I feel the product is well-made and easy to use. We often use just the back half "hip lift" part of the harness. Each half of the harness has a sturdy handle and can even be attached to a shoulder strap.
