For animals with disabilities, who may have trouble moving about on their own, life can be challenging. Fortunately, there are compassionate people who are prepared to step in and offer assistance. employing a little ingenuity to grant these animals the freedom they require.
All kinds of animals, from possums to tortoises. have benefited greatly from the work of a group called Walkin’ Pets in regaining their mobility. They recently gave a baby lamb a wheelchair made specifically for her in order to help her live.
Kiki, a 3.5-month-old lamb, reportedly battled to survive after her mother rejected her, according to a blog post from Walkin’ Pets. Lambs depend on their mothers for nutrition, therefore when they were rejected, Kiki became emaciated and unable to stand by herself.
Fortunately, Meghan King of the Massachusetts-based Don’t Forget Us Pet Us Sanctuary took the lamb in and promised to give Kiki the chance she deserves. The lamb has overcome obstacles and is receiving superb care, but her rescuers were aware that she wouldn’t be safe until she could stand independently.
According to the blog post, “She has spent a large portion of her early life lying down and can only comfortably lay on one side of her body, causing excruciating pressure sores to emerge.”
They contacted Walkin’ Pets and requested a device so that Kiki could finally stand up for herself.
They miraculously managed to assist, giving Kiki a harness and a “lamb wheelchair.” For the first time, the tiny lamb was able to stand by herself.
Kiki’s recovery will benefit greatly from the support provided by the bespoke wheelchair. According to Walkin’ Pets, the harness stabilizes Kiki and releases pressure from her limbs, enabling her therapists to start restoring function to her legs.
“Physical treatment will be much simpler for Kiki now that she can stand up, and she will be able to gain some traction with her one functional leg. Kiki’s first step toward walking on her own two feet is getting a wheelchair!
Although Kiki’s recovery will take time, her caregivers are overjoyed and pleased of the improvement the lamb has made.
Meghan King remarked, “The wheelchair is huge for us. “We are incredibly appreciative of Walkin’ Pets for this chance.”
How incredible — we’re so happy Kiki can stand on her own. Thank you to Walkin’ Pets for donating such a fantastic wheelchair and to everyone who has given this lovely lamb a chance!
