Prosthetic Limbs help Dogs too!


Meet our prosthetic leg patient, Kate the Dog!

Kate is a Scheck & Siress prosthetic leg patient from our Lincoln Park, Chicago office.

Kate was brought to us by Abby Smith, the Executive Director of Felines & Canines – a no-kill animal shelter in Chicago.

Certified prosthetist & orthotist Ryan Schuetzle, Jason Wening and Rob Cressler were thrilled to help our furry patient get a beautiful new prosthetic limb. Pictured below is Ryan and Kate as she’s getting fitted for her prosthetic limb.

Similar to many other three legged animals, Kate is enjoying full capabilities and living a happy life. We are very proud to report Kate has also found a forever home with a Chicago prosthetics and orthotics student here in the city!
