Golden Retriever Frankie is missing a leg from birth, which limits him. A high-tech prosthesis should replace it. A video shows how happy the dog is with the gift.
Ontario – Canadian Golden Retriever Frankie lost one of her legs shortly after giving birth and was unable to walk properly as a result. Now, however, he has obtained a high-tech prosthesis to replace his missing leg. As a result, his zest for life has returned: because he can now actually play with other dogs and chase sticks. The Golden Retriever shows how happy he can finally be.
You can see how excited Frankie is about her new prosthesis in this video:
With an artificial limb, Frankie can now live an almost normal life. Most dogs lack legs, they accept prostheses like Frankie. However, they first have to get into the habit of running with the help of my animal orthopedic surgeon. Without this support, dogs with missing limbs often experience poor posture, joint overload, or osteoarthritis. In addition to various prostheses, there are now wheelchairs for dogs.
