Celebrating 25 years! You’re invited…

Julie Jordan Brown established Medical Art Resources, Inc. in 1988– the first anaplastology practice in Wisconsin– in response to the need for high quality facial prosthetics. Our focus on every detail of every prosthesis for every patient has served us and our patients well.

We are grateful to our patients and referring doctors, nurses, and therapists. Our success would not be possible without you. We hope you can join us for our Open House on November 21st:

    I have a beautiful dog whose leg was atpumated by a lawn mower. The emergency vet talked me out of keeping the remainder of the leg which I could kick myself for. He is left with his shoulder that he tries to use all the time. He is just 14 months now and this happened at 10 months. The ortho vets I have spoken with say that while he will adjust well he will more than likely have some serious issues as he ages. Disc problems in his back and joint problems in his remaining foreleg. I see that he gets around but it is a lot of effort. I use to take him down town with me all the time but the pavement tears at his paw and he has to move at a certain pace. We used to go hiking all the time and he never tired, now he tires after a relatively short time. How much research have you done into dogs that have lived their entire lives without a foreleg and age without issues? Do you have any information or case studies on this. Other wise to say that a dog will live just fine with out 4 legs is ridiculous. He will have some good youthful years and may have some very uncomfortable latter years. I personally don’t want that for my dog. I have a design that I think could work for dogs that have a full amputation but I need to find someone that can help me work out the kinks. I think it would be much better than the carts as they are cumbersome and quite wide. Just to be able to fit my dog with something that he could use on long walks I think could help him a great deal.

      Sorry to hear about your dog’s injury. I do not have experience with leg prosthetics for dogs. You may want to contact limb prosthetists in your area to see if any have experience in this area. I am not sure how well a dog would accept a prosthesis–he/she may gnaw at it. I did make a nose prosthesis for a dog that was retained with a dental implants. This was well tolerated and protected open sinuses. I am a dog lover, but don’t think I have the expertise to manage a total leg amputation. Hope you are able to work out a solution for your dog.

      Regards,
      Julie
