The SynDaver Synthetic Canine is a futuristic animal model designed to replace live animals and animal cadavers in veterinary surgical training. Based on 20+ years of SynDaver research, this model is made from water, fiber and salt.
She is a life saver, but she is not alive. She breathes and bleeds just like a real dog. She has individual muscles, bones, and organs – and can be operated on repeatedly without risking a live animal.

SynDaver Canine is superior to live animals because it accurately mimics live tissue and allows the simulation of ANY pathology or condition based on educational needs. Placed in an educational setting, veterinary students will be challenged in ways that could only be dreamed of before.
Students and instructors will be able to repeat procedures over and over again, and make their mistakes on a synthetic animal rather than a living one. When they graduate they will be much more capable and save more animal lives as a result.
SynDaver Canine is superior to animal cadavers because it is designed to mimic live tissue. And since SynDaver Canine can be repeatedly serviced for continued use, it will last essentially forever – unlike cadavers – which must be continually acquired and disposed of. And finally, students and faculty will not be exposed to the carcinogenic formaldehyde used to preserve dead animals
