World’s First ‘Bionic’ Dog


Bionic dog can walk again after being fitted with prosthetics

World's First Bionic Dog

Naki’o, a mixed breed dog from Nebraska, has become the first dog fitted with four prosthetic limbs. This achievement was accomplished by US company Orthopets, which specializes in artificial pet limbs.

Naki’o was rescued by veterinarian assistant Christie Pace, who put together a fundraiser to raise enough money for two back leg prosthetics, which cost between £600 and £2000. However, after seeing his condition, Orthopets opted to do his front limbs free of charge.
