A veterinarian from Enger, Germany took parts from his son's LEGO set to give this tortoise by the name of Blade his mobility back. Dr. Carsten Plischke pieced together a temporary “wheelchair” for Blade, who lost strength in his legs from a growth disorder. With his new wheels, Blade is able to maneuver while his legs are able to heal. Eventually Blade will be able to walk again.
Dr. Plischke said in an interview with the Daily Mail that options for animals with mobility issues are, sadly, limited.
"For people there are walkers, rollators or prostheses but for animals there are no companies that produce something like that," Plischke said.
