Baby Cow Takes First Steps Thanks to Specially Made Wheelchair

By 7 months ago

Thanks to the animal lovers over at "Safe in Austin Rescue", Ruby Sue, the calf who couldn't walk, is up and walking. The cow was born with her back legs fused together and was likely going to be euthanized. Once the Texas rescue center heard though, they had to step in. 

Closer inspection by veterinarians revealed that although she looked unusual, Ruby Sue was totally healthy and living free from pain. Her only issue? Walking. 

The pet mobility company Walkin’ Pets knew that they would be able to create a mechanism to help the cow roam around. With the help of a custom-made chair, it wasn't long until the two-week-old calf was able to wander the pastures. 

“With only her front legs to support her, Ruby was unable to stand or walk on her own,” said Marketing Manager for Walkin' Pets, Jennifer Pratt.

"Because of these wheels," Jennifer continued, "Ruby Sue is able to stand on her own, allowing her to get the exercise she needs to strengthen her front legs and learn how to walk for the very first time." The company is dedicated to saving disabled pets and animals from euthanization by gifting shelters the proper means to care for them. Animals are worth living, even if they can't walk!
