The handicapped pet industry is booming as more Americans turn to specialized shops and services to extend the lives of their injured companions.

Robinson’s animal-oriented inventory of 250 pet products include tiny wheelchairs, diapers, orthotics, leg splints, seat belts, ramps and more. Last year, HandicappedPets.com shipped tens of thousands of items to customers in more than 22 countries, Robinson said.

 Though business has exploded in recent years, the pet paralysis industry has been on the rise since the early 1970s, said Dr. Lincoln Parkes, inventor of one of the first pet wheelchairs.
