blog_post_246x246_B

November’s App of the Month is sure to give even the most cynical amongst us serious pause—and to the pets in need amongst us, serious paws. By a truly noble mission, the Conduit Mobile-powered DogWheelchairs app by HandicappedPets.com provides products, services, and support to those cherished, furry family friends who’ve become incapacitated by old age, injury, or disease. With unusual wares ranging from adjustable doggie wheelchairs to specialized pet ramps, the app grants pets in dire straits the invaluable gift of a healthy, mobile, high-quality life. So, on behalf of grateful pet owners everywhere and needy quadrupeds at large, roaring congratulatory hollers (and howls) go out to HandicappedPets.com and their inspirational DogWheelchairs app.


Emotions were the guiding force behind HandicappedPets.com. When Mark C. Robinson’s beloved dog, Mercedes, was euthanized at a vet's advice after being diagnosed with a mild form of canine epilepsy, he was devastated. To add insult to injury, years later, a dear friend was diagnosed with the same mild form of epilepsy. She was prescribed a simple pill that completely eliminated all her symptoms and allowed her to enjoy a healthy, normal life.

To Mark, the outrageous discrepancy between the two courses of action in the face of the very same disease was unacceptable. He founded HandicappedPets.com to spare others the terrible experience he had undergone by teaching them that there are alternatives to euthanasia.

“An elderly, disabled, or injured pet can often live a high-quality life for many years if they get the little help that they need, whether from diapers, a rear-support leash, or a wheelchair,” Mark explained. “There was a day when an animal was hurt, became lame or incontinent, or was for any reason no longer wanted, they were put down. Not anymore.”

To accomplish this lofty goal, Mark needed to spread his message to as many people as possible, and a mobile app was the perfect tool to get the word around. “HandicappedPets.com wanted a simple, straightforward solution to providing our mobile customers with information about our Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchairs and other products available for elderly, disabled, and injured pets.”

The DogWheelchairs app, powered by Conduit Mobile, is a virtual goldmine for the multitude of tireless advocates and caretakers of debilitated pets. The app abounds with inspiring stories of hope and healing, giving much-needed emotional support to users everywhere. It also offers a wide selection of products and services that cater to the unique needs of pet owners and their handicapped dogs and cats. The app also provides instant access to the HandicappedPets.com social networks on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, through which community members actively encourage and interact with one another. In a word, a truly worthy app for a truly worthy cause.

Pet owners and veterinarians can easily access our simple ordering screen, quickly enter their dog’s information, and complete an order in a matter of minutes…directly from their mobile devices.”

What about creating the app itself? “We found the app-building process to be very straightforward and user-friendly, with plenty of support for any technical questions as they arose.”

And as it turns out, like all successful mobile apps, the DogWheelchairs app has also substantially increased HandicappedPets.com's customer reach and product awareness. A constantly growing number of pet caretakers, for example, are investing in Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchairs, as through the app, they learn they are available, easy to order, simple to use, and can help pets with both long and short-term mobility problems. “We believe that life doesn’t have to be a drag for a handicapped pet. With the DogWheelchairs app, more and more mobile devices users are sharing and implementing our belief and finding the optimal solutions for their special-needs pets.”

Doing good and making good…For a conscientious business owner like Mark, it just doesn’t get any better. And these pets, no longer encumbered by pesky disabilities thanks to Mark and his brilliant contraptions, continue to run (or wheel…) around, carefree and happy, and utterly oblivious to the copious tears of joy we shed on their behalf. They always do leave the mushy stuff to us…
