Schon A Gross, founder Phoenix Design Solutions and DogLeggs
Veterinary Product Design Solutions
As the Founder and Designer of all the innovative coverage and bandaging solutions for DogLeggs beginning in 1999 to this day, I am very proud to have changed veterinary medicine and its approach to treatment and coverage for animals of all species.
From the first product I designed and produced in 1999, for our Rottweiler, Greif, my goals and mission were three fold:
First: to solve coverage and bandaging design challenges for animals....not just dogs, any animal whose owner/caretaker, contacted me with a need;
Second:Bring the knowledge of our products into the veterinary university teaching programs, making them a part of the curriculum and textbooks. In December 2011, I accomplished that goal, "Veterinary Surgery, Small Animal," K.M Tobias and S.A.Johnston, Elsevier Saunders Publishing, now includes many references to the products I designed. References that show the product as the better alternative to traditional bandaging and treatment. The photos are worth a thousand words. Many animals and their owner's lives will be enhanced because their vets will be aware of the products I designed and produced.
Third: The products must be financially accessible for all.
With the launch of my new company Phoenix Design Solutions, in 2013, I continue my commitment to providing expertise and solutions you have come to depend on me for. If you need my design expertise, please know I am here for you and your animals, whether they are a dog, cat, ferret, moose, horse, cat, bunny, llama....
We are dedicated to designing and producing innovative quality products for multiple markets worldwide at a fair price, making the products accessible to all who need them.
Greif, our Rottweiler, is the reason we created our first product and company, fifteen years ago, his legacy continues today.
A sampling of the variety of custom products I have designed in recent years.
The Moose, Baby Bella, had a femural fracture. I had just created the Ehmer Sling for dogs. Bella is now 5 years old and her veterinarians tell me without the Sling her prognosis would not have been positive.
The Horse, Pancho needed protection for his elbows. Once I created his custom coverage, his owner could take some time away from him and know his elbows were protected from damage.
The Girl,Mollie, had a diagnosis of Multi-directional Shoulder Instability. After a great deal of research, we discovered there are really no Shoulder Braces designed for a woman's body contours. I custom sculpted the shoulder brace. Mollie wore the brace pre-surgery and post surgery, 24/7 and continues to use the brace whenever her shoulder bothers her.
