Either through accident or disease, some dogs lose a limb. Their quality of life can suffer greatly after this, but it doesn't necessarily have to be this way. You can give him or her a prosthetic limb! Here are five incredible benefits of buying a full prosthetic leg for dogs:
#1 It's a safe alternative to surgery.
Surgeries are painful, invasive, and can require large amounts of recovery time. As much as you love your dog, surgery can sometimes just be out of reach. This doesn't even mention the fact that some dogs aren't a candidate for surgery because of their advanced age. If surgery is out of the question, a prosthetic limb is the solution you're looking for.
#2 It's much less costly.
A common mistake is to assume this is the more expensive option. In fact, the opposite is true. Expensive surgeries, more severe injuries, and alternative treatments really add up over time. This makes a full limb prosthetic a long-term, cost-effective decision. This purchase can be made once and last for many years to come, probably your dog's entire life.
#3 A prosthetic provides support.
Dogs with missing limbs have discomfort while trying to get around. It can make simple acts such as walking or jumping onto the couch feel impossible. Prosthetics minimize this discomfort, providing the support and stability your dog needs. A prosthetic limb increases mobility and prevents further stress placed on the remaining limbs.
#4 Your dog will be happier and healthier.
Injuries and mobility issues can have a mental effect on dogs. Just like you would be sad if you were unable to walk, your dog is too! Your dog needs to be mobile in order to not only enjoy life but to live life to the fullest. After the loss of a limb, a prosthetic limb makes this possible. Your dog can live a happy and healthy lifestyle with all of the running, jumping, and playing they want. A prosthetic limb helps to create a natural, normal sense of life.
#5 Prosthetics can be custom fit.
When you invest in a top-of-the-line prosthetic limb, it is made especially for him or her. It all begins by requesting a casting kit. You'll measure your dog and tell us the exact measurements. We'll create the limb based on your dog's exact needs. This isn't a "one size fits all" or even a product that comes in Small, Medium, and Large. This is made for your dog and your dog only.
