About My Pet's Brace
Update from our friends in South Korea
We recently heard from our South Korean friends San Kim and Clara Yu who visited us last year. They started their veterinary orthotics and prosthetics practice soon after returning from the U.S. A few weeks ago Mark and Jim received some beautiful gifts from them as thanks for helping them get started. (They were celebrating the South Korean Thanksgiving day.)
Koreans mainly have small dogs as pets and San and Clara are finding that many of their patients need wheelchairs (mobility carts). They primarily provide made-to-measurement carts as we do at My Pet’s Brace (via eddieswheels.com) but as the pictures show, they make custom carts for difficult or unique cases.
San and Clara named their practice “Pets OnP” and you can view their website, petsonp.com. You’ll notice that the two dogs on the homepage banner are My Pet’s Brace patients.
In getting established San and Clara are finding just as we did that the veterinarians are not familiar with veterinary orthotics and prosthetics. San reports that they are making many friends in the veterinary community as the vets begin to understand what they have to offer, as well as many good contacts in shelter and rescue community.
And clients become big fans. San told us that after they help a pet, the pet’s owner usually says, “You guys are doing a really great job. We really need it. Everyone should know this kind of thing is also provided in Korea.”
Helping pets live happier lives. San’s and Clara’s clients are right: Everyone should know about it!
