01.20.14 The Start of Animal Prosthetics News!

Found a good site to start our information sharing regarding small animal prosthetics development and usage. This Denver Colorado based company was started by a compassionate, well educated veterinarian Martin Kaufmann in 2003.

Please review this site and what they have to offer.

He brought his background in human orthotics and
prosthetics into the animal health care industry.
When Martin’s cousin’s dog, Walt, suffered from a stroke and lost the
ability to use his front leg, he was surprised at the vets recommended
amputation. Coming from the human practice, Martin’s first thought was
to use an orthotic device to position the limb so that Walt could
ambulate normally.
