3D printing also benefitted the following animals:

1. Buttercup the Duck

Born without a foot, she got a prosthetic one when a company 3D printed a mold out of silicone. Thanks to the mold, Trooper, another duck, got a new leg.

2. Turboroo the Chihuahua

Without front legs, it’s impossible to run or play the way most dogs do. Turboroo captured the heart of a veterinarian who started a crowdfunding campaign to get the little guy a cart. Through donations, Turboroo got custom rollerblade-style wheels to help him get around. Turboroo even has his own YouTube Channel.

3D printing solves a number of problems for humans and the animal kingdom. 3D printed prosthetic limbs give men, women, and children the opportunity to live life happy and carefree. It looks like Cleopatra is also going to benefit from her new “home.” She won’t need to worry about infection any longer.
