So far Domino is progressing amazingly after his surgery this week. You’d never know anything was wrong. I called a local Animal Rehab Clinic yesterday just to get her advice on post op care and core strengthening. Her first question when I told her what Domino had done was if I was considering using a prosthetic. To be honest I’d never thought about it. He’s getting around so well and coping amazingly. He also had his entire front limb amputated, including his shoulder blade. So I don’t know if there is really anything for a prosthetic to attach to. Any opinion or thoughts on prosthetics ? And especially with a while forelimb amputation, is it even worth looking into? Any info would be great! 

Thanks so much

Cassie and Domino

Domino had his left front leg amputate on May 13th 2014 after being hit by a car. He's now living a happy healthy life on three legs :)

Prosthetics usually require planning prior to amputation and success always depends on extensive rehab and training. But they can certainly do wonders!

Please review our video interviews with Orthopets, the leader in orthotic braces and prosthetics . They work with vets everywhere. Visit the Orthopets website for more information and please tell them Tripawds sent you! We also have a series of video interviews with Dr Duerr from CSU about orthopedics, and one addresses the use of prosthetics .

Search these forums and you’ll find other posts and videos about prosthetics , or you can search all blogs here.
