First Dog Fitted With False Teeth (Aug, 1938)

Dog Fitted With False Teeth

“MacKENZIE BOY”, an aged Bost°n terrier pet owned by an Aberdeen, Wash., resident, is believed to be the first dog ever fitted with a complete set of false teeth. Dr. D. Fosland, of Aberdeen, constructed the artificial molars for the dog and it is claimed they enable the canine to masticate properly.

    This is insane! 1938..I thought today’s dog lovers were goofy, but apparently the craziness existed back then too.
