Man Makes Wheelchair For His Disabled Goldfish Who Can’t Swim Upright

Disabilities and setbacks can occur to anyone, even our animal companions. However, despite such, it doesn’t change the way we love our pets. Even though there may be things that they cannot do or may do differently, it doesn’t degrade their worth in our eyes.

While we love our pets the same no matter what sets them apart from other animals, there may be a different way that we must care for them, whether temporarily or permanently. For instance, if our canine has a sprained foot, we might have to pick him or her up to help them transport from one location to the next, or we might need to provide a special device to help them walk. Accommodating our furry, scaley, or feathery friends proves just how much we love and care about them.

For one pet owner, he noticed that his goldfish was having difficulty swimming. Interestingly, the fish was able to swim left, right, down, forward, and back, but he was not able to swim upright.

Sometimes a fish’s buoyancy is affected due to health conditions like swim bladder disease. When a fish has trouble with buoyancy due to a health ailment, they may have difficulty traveling

Although there isn’t video footage of this particular goldfish, another fish by the name of Einstein received a similar device to help him swim when he lost his fin to swim bladder disease. See the heartwarming footage of him swimming in the video below.
