Super Cute Wolf Pup Wants To Be A Dentist! Sticks Her Snouth In Momma's Mouth!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooPuppyWolf

Wolf Pup!

A cutie lil wolf pup was born a few weeks ago at Zoo Zurich in Switzerland and she's so super adorbz, we don't even know what to do with ourselves!

The little baby used to spend all her time snuggled up to her momma, but now she's on an independent streak. She's even spent a lot of her time wandering her enclosure on her own, rolling solo.

Haha, in fact, we think this lone wolf must be trying to figure out her place in the world because she's trying different professions.

She was caught while practicing some dentistry on her mama, as you can see (above)!

Ha! Open wide!! That is just waaaay too cute!

Check out some more pics (below) of the tiny wolfie pup!

It's Hard To Find A Decent Hippopotamus Dentist These Days

Hippopotamus Dentist

Need a tic-tac?

A dentist from North Carolina recently traveled all the way to Puerto Rico to perform a dental procedure on a 3,000 lb patient.

For the past 20-years Dr. Mike Loomis has being flying south to treat a 39-year-old male hippo named Tomy.

The Ferré zoo's most popular animal suffers from a malocclusion, which prevents his lower teeth from wearing properly, and they eventually overgrow to the point that they interfere with his eating.

"The first time I performed the dental procedure on Tomy, his teeth had grown through his upper lip, making it very painful for him to chew. He was very thin, and I was concerned about the risk of anesthesia. Since then, the zoo has done a great job of making sure that his teeth are trimmed before they get to that point,"

explained Loomis.

Sounds like Tomy is super lucky to have such a talented friend from the states — even if he's not more giving with the anesthesia!

Silverback Gorilla Gets A Root Canal

Filed under: HealthGorilla

gorilla toothache

Even Apes have to go to the dentist!

They say that an 800-pound gorilla can sit anywhere he wants. But when he's got a toothache, there's only one place he can go — into the dentist's chair.

Oscar Jonsey, a 30-year-old lowlands gorilla from the San Francisco Zoo, was knocked out while two dentists performed a three-hour procedure to save an abscessed tooth.

This was the second trip to the dentist's office in the past year for the ailing ape, also known as O.J.

Last year poor O.J. had to get a root canal too.

The silverback gorilla was anesthetized in his pen and brought to the zoo's veterinary hospital where dentist Dan Mairani and endodontist Steve Holifield, who usually handle humans, treated O.J.'s canine tooth.

Is that necessary?

When you're star you can bring your dog everywhere. Literally.

Nicollette Sheridan was spotted leaving her Beverly Hills dentist office after getting a root canal, Thursday. She had her boyfriend and her dog with her for moral support.

We know the dentist is suxs but… is that sanitary?

Lion Gets A Root Canal

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueHealthZooLions

Wow!

Mumbasa, an African lion at the Brit Spaugh Zoo in Kansas, got a visit from the dentist after chomping down on his enclosure's fence and chipping an inch long tooth.

The lion was put to sleep on Monday morning and a team assisted a dentist while he gave the sleeping beast a root canal.

The procedure went according to plan and Mumbasa is resting up before he returns to his enclosure to greet visitors at the zoo.
