Retired veterinarian manufactures wheelchairs for disabled animals
To fulfill his dream, he founded the company known as K-9 Carts, where he makes custom wheelchairs for disabled dogs.
The vet spends his days designing special chairs for animals in need, and there is nothing more rewarding for him than seeing a happy dog go back to running on his own with a new wheelchair.
Now he can dedicate all his time to making K-9 chairs, but he has actually been producing them since the 60’s, and in all this time he has helped many little animals.
His great passion began when a man approached with his paralyzed dog for help. The dog had unfortunately been hit by a car and ended up paralyzed from the waist down.
The dog’s father was desperate, he even considered euthanizing his furry friend since the dog’s quality of life had decreased significantly and caring for him was very difficult and demanding for the man.
At that point, Dr. Linconl had a great idea, built a cart for the paralyzed puppy and took him for a test drive. The vet and the dog’s owner took him to the field and they played a good time.
They watched in surprise and excitement as the puppy rushed to follow a frisbee, the canine leaped and caught the puck in midair very easily.
It was really a very emotional moment for everyone present and it completely changed the life of that dog. The car had restored his joy and autonomy, and Dr. Linconl had discovered his new passion.
Since he founded K-9 Carts he has been changing the lives of many animals with disabilities. The former veterinarian makes each cart adapted to the needs of the animals, since the well-being of pets has always been his priority.
