Bioprinting is a versatile tool, which is capable to generate a wide range of tissues and organs. Access to bioprinted organs could help to alleviate the present animal organ shortage challenge. In combination with developments in tissue engineering, these technologies could also help in the treatment of several problems within veterinary medicine including horse bone fractures, articular cartilage healing, or the generation of more realistic disease models. The driving force behind recent breakthroughs in 3D bioprinting has been its value in animal treatment. Research projects targeting human applications have leveraged companion animal models to examine the safety and efficacy of bioprinted tissues.

Key Words: Bioprinting, tissue engineering, veterinary medicine, animal models
