UK Veterinarian Turns to 3D Printing to Fix a Tiny Dog’s Bent Leg

UK Veterinarian Turns to 3D Printing to Fix a Tiny Dog’s Bent Leg

I have three dogs, all of whom are considered medium-sized in that they weigh roughly over 16 kg but less than 30 kg. When they run at you, especially my larger two, it’s not so much cute as it is potentially painful, because you know that they could pretty much bowl you over if you’re […]
