Ortho Pets Beginning

OrthoPets was founded by Martin Kaufmann in 2003 after he brought his background in human Orthotics and Prosthetics into the animal healthcare industry.

When Martin’s cousin’s dog, Walt, suffered from a stroke and lost the ability to use his front leg, he was surprised at the vets recommended amputation. Coming from the human practice, Martin’s first thought was to use an Orthotic Device to position the limb so that Walt could ambulate normally.

Several versions later it became clear that the animal world would benefit from the integration of Orthotics and Prosthetics into the animal healthcare practice. Since the beginning, Martin Kaufmann has spent considerable time and resources in order to study, discuss, publish, and develop Orthotic and Prosthetic solutions with Veterinarians and Universities alike.

This rewarding challenge became a full time pursuit and the driving force behind OrthoPets. One by one, Martin has helped animals to regain the lifestyle they once enjoyed and allowed others to experience new freedoms with each device he has created. Rooted in the principles of human Orthotics and Prosthetic and coupled with the latest technology in the field, Martin applies these same concepts to help support a variety of animals. He continues to take on new cases, offering bracing and adaptive solutions to animals world wide.
