Getting a prosthetic limb for your dog

Losing a limb doesn't have to mean a lifetime of discomfort for your pet. More and more dogs are being fitted with prosthetic limbs. For example, Star has some new pep in her step. The 7-year-old German shepherd lost part of her right hind leg at birth, leaving her unable to walk comfortably. But two months ago she was fitted with a customized prosthetic leg. Her owners say it has changed her life. Star is one of a growing number of injured dogs whose owners are turning to human-like prosthetics and orthotics to improve their quality of life.
