Veterinarians, surgeons, nurses and rehab therapists find this product as a useful aid to help their patients be lifted more comfortably post-surgery and to help them rehabilitate more easily.

The conventional version of our dog lifting harness by Blue Dog Designs has a solid belly band and works very well for all female dogs and the majority of male dogs. It has two fasteners on the belly band, for easier centering, an ergonomically designed belly band to fit under the pelvis, and padded support straps.
U-Band: Male dogs whose penis is farther forward of their hind legs can wear the conventional hip lift, allowing them to urinate freely. We recommend this version for most dogs.
