3D Printed Paws for Dog

Prosthetic limb made for a dog.

Zeus, a five-year-old Siberian husky with a missing foot, will get his first chance to run in the snow.  Zeus now becomes the fifth pet to receive a custom-made osseointegrated implant and attached prosthetic limb at NC State thanks to a collaboration between the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine and College of Engineering.
