The "braces" were created by a Veterinarian in Pennsylvania at Lehigh Valley Veterinary Dermatology. They posted these details with the photo: "Fish Braces!!?? Mr. Hot Wing came in today for trouble breathing and inability to eat. He was born without a lower jaw bone and his mouth could not stay open. Brian Palmeiro did surgery to open his mouth and created this brace to help his mouth stay open." Unbelievable! Mr. Hot Wing's owners must be super excited.
