Ex-lifeguard becomes pet paramedic offering care he was unable to find for his own cat

Wong Kam-cheong lost his beloved cat 10 years ago after the animal fell ill and its hind legs became paralysed at around midnight. Most veterinary clinics are closed at that hour, and few emergency services for pets are available in the city. Traumatised by his experience, Wong consoled himself by becoming an animal first-aider with the Hong Kong Pet Club, the only organisation in the city offering an overnight ambulance service for pets.
