A letter from Tim Reid, DVM
Debbie and Tim,
After seeing Otto Step in action I was excited to hear it would soon be available to the general dog-loving public. What a great tool to assist older dogs and to enhance the longevity of younger dogs. We have many large breed dogs in our practice that would benefit from this practical device. Dogs of any breed may be subject to such conditions as osteoarthritis, spondylitis, hip dysplasia and intervertebral disc disease as they get older. These unfortunate patients have great difficulty climbing stairs alone, not to mention attempting to jump into a truck or SUV. Otto Step makes their climb into such vehicles 50% easier and reduces the jarring (compressions) effect of getting out as well. This will be a great aid in assisting dogs with debilitating conditions as well as preventing healthy dogs from showing premature signs of arthritis, osteoarthritis, etc.
Patients suffering from acute injuries including sprains, strains, ruptured ACL/PCL’s would also benefit from the convenience of Otto Step.
All in all, this is a great tool and one I intend to make available to all my dog owning, SUV/pick-up driving clients.
Tim Reid, DVM
