This heroic Animal Planet doctor is making prosthetics for pets
Derrick Campana stars in ‘Dodo Heroes’
TV Animal Planet
“I was doing the whole ‘human thing’ … but a vet brought in her dog, who needed a prosthetic, to my human practice. I made a prosthetic that was a success, and I immediately knew that this was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life,” Campana told Moneyish.
Embarking on a medical industry that was relatively unexplored, Campana started Animal Ortho Care fifteen years ago, and has been giving animals a new leash on life ever since. “When I first started, people would just put these animals down, same as in the equine world, which I’m trying to change,” he said. “But now we’re seeing people caring about animals more. And things like this ‘Dodo Heroes’ series and our videos are raising awareness that things like dog prosthetics exist, and you can give your animals a second chance.”
