Wheelchair for a puppy

Clients who have recently visited us might have seen that cute puppy in the front office. It is paralized (due to "self-vaccination" into the spinal cord in the former home?!?) and cannot move the hind legs.

We tried to get it walking again and were hopeful due to the young age. But it's time to accept that the nerves won't grow back and try new ways. We came up with the idea of building a dog-wheelchair. Very common in the US, new to Kenya.

What we are still looking for are wheels. Anyone has a pair of old stroller wheels or some from those kid's cars/toys? They shouldn't be too big - it's still a puppy :) About 10 to 20cm diameter. Bigger might also be useful in the future.

The status quo is unacceptable though it doesn't feel pain it pulls the legs and gets wound easily. Locking it in a cage is not an option either. Help us, donate two wheels and give this puppy a chance!

Happy Easter everyone and please don't vaccinate your animals on your own.

Can you spot your vet?

Here is a picture courtesy of the "Kenya Small and Companion Animal Veterinary Association" (KESCAVA).
Picture taken at the "Nairobi University Clinical Studies Department". DR. ANDREW HILLIER, BVSc, MACVSc, Dipl. ACVD ZOETIS gave us a good training on "Vet Skin Conditions".

Am sure our pets will all benefit :)
