Prosthetic Limb Implant

For a dog! The dog has had a metal device implanted in its foreleg bone to mimic a paw that had been amputed due to cancer. The device is permanent and the idea is that the skin will heel around it. If this is true, it could make human prosthetics far more advanced. Perhaps there will be connections directly to muscles.
