Mac was found hiding in a discarded mac’ n’ cheese box and taken to Massapequa Vet in Long Island, New York, where his back legs were confirmed to be crippled due to nerve damage. Soon after his first brush with success, the clinic posted videos and pictures of him doing water therapy and testing a custom wheeled brace made of Lego blocks!
Wheels for disabled cats and dogs are nothing new, but they are not used indoors by most animals, as it is not possible to climb onto furniture or sit down while using them. Mac, now nearly 4 years old.
sometimes puts his back legs under him to stand, but has little control over them and usually scoots using his front legs, which seem strong enough to jump and climb, as his main movement form. He also has a stupid, almost human-like resting position, due to the position of his back legs.
