Special thanks to people who made wheelchair for this poor turtle.
Animals with diseases have difficult life. They have to live their lives with pain and uncomfortable conditions.
Fortunately, there are kind people who think of animals with handicaps.
Like this huge turtle who can’t keep his 70-pound body on its feet. The turtle was born with a leg disability called metabolic bone disease.
It means he has a calcium and phosphorus imbalance. It’s too difficult for George because his body weighs 70 pounds.
He barely used his front legs to propel himself forward. Considering that turtles live to be 100 years old, it’s not easy for George to keep moving.
A solution was happily found. So when Jamie learned that another turtle had been given a special wheelchair for his legs, he contacted them as well.
The organization helped keep the turtle happy. They made a special wheelchair for George.
Thanks to the real idea and willingness to help the animal, George will now be able to live a full life.
Jaime says the turtle really loves the equipment.
