University students create 3D-pritned mask for dogs with severe facial injuries
- By Sho Murakoshi
A young dog called Loca that suffered a fractured cheekbone and jawbone following an attack from another dog has been helped out by the University of California's Davis School of Veterinary Medicine who have created a special mask for canines with such injuries. The 3D-printed exoskeleton dubbed the Exo-K9 was designed by biomedical engineering students alongside UC Davis staff. Loca is now recovering well from the surgery on her facial injuries.
