What do you do when your pet loses its leg? We know that they would have to suffer through the ordeal for most of us. Well, one pet owner didn’t agree. A prosthetic leg designed using a 3D printer is given to a three-month-old Leghorn with a deformed right leg. The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University made it all possible for Cecily the chicken feet.
The deformed leg Gets a 3D Prosthetic Leg tendon in her right leg., which impaired her mobility to a great extent. The chicken was given to the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and offered euthanasia or a prosthetic leg. The 3D Prosthetic Leg cost $2500.
Andrea Martin, the chicken owner, immediately signed up for a prosthetic leg because she believes Cecily needs to have an everyday life. Martin’s farm focuses on chicken rehabilitation, and it is not the first time that she has spent money on surgery on one of her chickens. Don’t you think that this is a great idea?
