I cannot say enough about Derrick and Animal Orthocare. We adopted a puppy ( Tippy) with a missing forelimb and some hip issues. When we got her home she was not mobile and her limb with the missing forelimb was stunted and at the beginning stages of atrophy. After meeting with our Vet, we went to Derrick and had Tippy fitted with her growth-stage prosthetic.

The Commission on accredits O & P programs and provides a list of them on its website. While you aren't required to attend an accredited program, it can benefit your career if you do. After you graduate, you will have to do a one-year residency in either orthotics or prosthetics or a combination of the two.
