Humans aren’t the only ones who get braces, dogs with poorly aligned teeth that need correcting can get them too. Here’s Wesley’s story!
This is Molly Moore and her 6-month-old golden retriever, Wesley.
Molly works at a veterinary clinic in Spring Lake, Michigan, owned by her dad, Jim Moore.
Wesley had some teething problems.
When his adult teeth started coming in, they grew in misaligned. He couldn’t even close his mouth properly.
Wesley began losing weight and stopped playing with his toys. Molly knew something had to be done.
Molly’s dad is a specialist in veterinary dentistry and had the solution: dog braces.
He knows that it’s a bit unusual for animals to get braces, but it’s not unheard of. Unlike in people, animals get braces for purely functional reasons.
Here’s Wesley showing off his new smile!
“He’s just so cute with them on,” says Molly.
Wesley won’t have them on for long. His braces should only be on for a few more weeks.
He’s already a handsome boy, and he will soon have the perfect smile to go with it!
