Dr. Licoln Parkes, 90-year-old retired veterinary surgeon, spends his days building custom-designed wheelchairs for pets with disabilities. While at the Animal Medical Center in New York City, Dr. Parkes realized that disabled pets faced a dismal future. Thus the idea for the K-9 Cart was born. Dr. Parkes remains the owner and in his quest to improve his design over the years is the holder of several patents for K-9 Carts.

The original objective was to provide a lightweight, adjustable device of simple design that would allow paraplegic animals to walk with minimal stress and maximal maneuverability. This objective has not changed in forty-five years.

Those animals really move with those apparatus, and I am always complaining about my knee. I should be ashamed.
