Courtesy of OrthoPets and 9 News – Denver, we’d like to share the incredible story of Andre, the dog, who recovered from a traumatic dual leg amputation with the aid of custom prostheses from Martin Kaufmann of OrthoPets.

Andre’s custom pet prostheses were fabricated by OrthoPets from thermoplastic, specifically molded for Andre’s leg measurements, along with Tamarack Flexure Joints to simulate natural movement. It’s a miracle how quickly Andre is able to adapt to wearing the new prostheses.
OrthoPets was founded in 2003 by Amy and Martin Kaufmann and continues to grow as a source for custom pet orthotic & prosthetic devices across the United States and abroad. For more information, visit http://www.orthopets.com.
