    Yes, Winter, the famous dolphin with the prosthetic tale in the movie “Dolphin Tale” with Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, and Harry Connick Jr. is a good example. This movie opened last summer and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida where Winter lives received alot of publicity.

    There have actually been several cases in which animals have been fitted with prosthetics. Oscar, a cat who lost his two back legs in a combine harvester accident, was fitted with implants attached to prosthetic paws. Though they weren’t designed for outdoor use, the prosthetics have made Oscar a much happier cat after the accident. Naki’o, a dog who lost all of his paws from frostbite after being abandoned, was the first dog to ever receive a full set of prosthetic paws. His new attachments have even helped Naki’o to run and swim, making him an eager, playful dog cared by a new, loving family.
