Goldfish Owner Makes A Cork ‘Wheelchair’ To Help His Sick Fish Swim Upright

In the most adorable animal wheelchair we’ve ever seen since the doggie wheelchairs and turtle wheels we shared earlier, an image has surfaced of a goldfish in an adorable sling, which people are calling a ‘goldfish wheelchair,’ designed to keep her afloat and upright.

‘Fish wheelchairs’ (or slings or buoys – call them what you will) like these are used to help fish swim upright while they recover from swim bladder infections that make it difficult for them to do so on their own. Green peas can help solve buoyancy issues related to constipation, but infected swim bladders or other issues may require specialized medication. Consult your vet!
