VIDEO: 3D printed mask created for injured dog


DAVIS (KRON/CNN) — Four-month-old Loca was severely bitten by another dog, but thanks to a 3D-printed mask, she is well on her way to being a healthy puppy.

Loca’s skull and jaw had extensive damage.

A company in Davis just happened to be developing 3D-printed exoskeletons and Loca was the perfect candidate.

She was fitted with the mask, which had a padded neck bandage that helps to stabilize her neck fracture.

The mask was removed after three months.

Loca is still healing, but she has a new lease on life.
