    My 3-Legged husky dog suffers from severe arthritis in his back hip. A prosthetic may have worked well for him as his leg was cut just above the joint. He had surgery to amputate the rest of his leg. I didn’t have any idea that arthritis would be an issue for such a young dog. He is 5 now and an amazing dog. Kids smile when they see him. He sets such a good example as Polo will too.

      At this point prosthetics for pets are pretty experimental. But I’m excited for the day when it is commonplace for us to use them!
