This episode of Tripawd Talk Radio will discuss an exciting study currently underway at Colorado State University, "Evaluation of Partial Amputation in Dogs". This study will examine how partial amputee Tripawds cope with artificial limbs (prosthetics).

The study is led by Dr. Felix Duerr, DMV ACVS Diplomate, ACVSMR who oversees CSU’s Small Animal Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation program. The year-long study is currently seeking front or rear limb amputee dogs and their owners. Dr. Duerr will discuss which dogs are ideal candidates to participate in the study, the benefits of participating and things that owners will need to do in order to receive a free prosthetic device, and all rechecks and aftercare associated with the prosthetic device for the duration of the study.
