Goldfish with missing jawbone fitted with $150 braces

Braces for your fish!

ALLENTOWN, PA (WCMH)– A veterinarian in Pennsylvania is creating some smiles over social media after he created fish braces.

A pet is a pet. Whether it’s a dog, a cat or a goldfish, people usually want what’s best for their animals and in this case, what was best was braces for Mr. Hot Wing.

Mr. Hot Wing is a standard goldfish, but he had trouble breathing and had an inability to eat. According to the Lehigh Valley Veterinary Dermatology, Mr. Hot Wing was born without a lower jaw bone and his mouth could not stay open.

Veterinarian Brian Palmeiro did surgery on the fish to and created a brace to help his mouth stay open.

There is no word on whether Mr. Hot Wing will need a retainer following his venture with braces.
