Hello all, I am new here and have a 12 year old boy that is going in for surgery on his knee on the 15th. We are getting our home prepared and have stairs in our home. We were looking at different support harnesses and wanted to know if anyone has used the AST get a grip harness? My boy is unfortunately overweight and is on Canine Caviar special needs kibble to try to bring the weight down. Anyone that has been through this surgery before? Any support and insight would be greatly appreciated. We love our guy so much and want to make this as easy as possible for him. He has the spirit of a puppy and overall is very healthy. He is retired now but used to be a working dog. He is very well trained and even though he doesn't listen like he used to, he is very well behaved.
