A project at Southern Utah University has yielded a prosthetic limb for pets.

According to the university:

With the support of Bionic Pets and a generous donation from H/3 Foundation, three engineering students at Southern Utah University have designed prosthetic feet for a dog named Yeti, who was adopted from Best Friends Animal Society last year. The student team, including Najilah Jones, Morgan Hansen, and Cierra Salcido, began the process to help Yeti earlier this year.

The 3-D printed prosthetics cost between $1,000 and $3,000, KSL News Radio reports.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
