Vets Use 3D Printing To Save Animal Lives

A group of vets, known as the Animal Avengers, are saving injured animals using 3D printed prosthetics to replace damaged or missing limbs.

The ingenious team of six specialists – four vets, a dental surgeon and a 3D designer – use pioneering 3D technology to prolong the lives of seriously wounded pets and exotic wild animals.

Based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the team have reconstructed artificial beaks for three toucans, a parrot, and a goose; designed the first ever titanium prosthetic pecker for a Macaw and built a brand new plastic-based replacement hull for a traumatised turtle.
