Health and Healing for a Furry Friend

At Johnson & Johnson, we often talk about “caring for the world one person at a time.”  But we’ve not often talked about how our caring extends to our four-legged friends.  Our DePuy Synthes Vet Division often goes beyond the call of duty to assist organizations around the country – and around the world for that matter – bring health and healing to domestic and wild animals with traumatic injury.

We’re happy to share a recent example featuring Tocho, an adult mountain lion at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado, who had reinjured a previously fractured rear right leg.  DePuy Synthes personnel supported veterinary surgeons from Colorado State University in providing bone plates and expertise to ensure that the surgical implants would be appropriate for the lion’s injury, weight requirements, and removal and reintegration into the pride.

    Thank you J&J for your devotion to helping animals throughout the world. God had Noah put them on the ark because He revered them, so we know He wanted to save them. I have always been an animal lover and just recently signed up to become a vets assistant. I belong to every animal site and own every shirt out there in the hopes of saving our beloved friends. They are all beautiful. I truly wish that people would leave nature alone. You will be blessed by God for your humane work. Thank you again and I will continue to purchase your products because of this. Yours in the spirit MARY ANN MARKMANN
