Sometimes animals need a little extra help in life.
The cute little kitten was born with defective hind legs and was abandoned by his mother shortly after birth. It seems that his mother understood that she absolutely could not provide for him, and was afraid that he definitely would not last long on this globe. Her very natural reaction was to leave him and focus on the kittens that had the opportunity to survive.
However, there is some good news for Max: Massapequa Pet Dog Vet employees work tirelessly to help problem animals get a new chance at life. As a group of extremely experienced veterinarians, they make sure the pets get exactly the care they need and are more than happy to help little Max.
After being abandoned by his mother, Max tried to survive on his own for a while, but his time was running out quickly. Then a kind heart found him on the street and led him to the knowledgeable group of Massapequa Animal Vet. It would change his life for life.
Doctors quickly realized that something was wrong with his legs, and decided to give him his own cat stroller. Using his front legs, Max moved back and forth across the terrain. He was overjoyed. Instantly he was not prevented by faulty hind legs. He can run like any other kitten.
Currently, the vets are helping Max build muscle and strengthen his nerves so he can take full advantage of his new chair.
His training program includes sea exercises and pole climbing. By climbing the pole, jumping to and from the pole, and practicing hanging from the pole, Max strengthens his front leg muscles, which is vital for him to be able to pull himself forward.
Water workouts help Max relax his muscles and also allow him to exercise them without putting too much pressure on them. The medical staff are also very hopeful that his water training will help him get a feel for his hind legs.
Even though Max has never gained any experience in his hind legs, his future looks promising thanks to a dedicated group of doctors. The wheelchair allows him to run, play, and also check, and he can even get around without a wheelchair thanks to his strong front legs. Max couldn’t be better.
Despite such a difficult start in life, Max can now play and mess around like any other kitten. He has a lot of toys to play with and also have fun with other kittens his age. He runs around the clinic like the happiest kitten in the world.
Max will definitely stick with his training and no matter what happens, he will definitely grow up to live a rich and fulfilling life.
