Facelifts for Fido?

Posted: Updated:

A growing number of dog owners are turning to cosmetic surgery to improve the look of their pets!

Treatments such as facelifts, tummy tucks and even Botox to smooth out wrinkles can cost more than $10,000.

Take a look at the before and after picture.  Kaiser's owner had him go under the knife because his ears were too floppy.  Veterinarians inserted mesh ear implants to give them more of an upright, lifted look.

Junior's owners spent more than $13,000 on a tummy tuck, face lift and other surgeries, but this wasn't just cosmetic.

Junior has a disease that causes excess skin to develop and he was left nearly immobile and unable to see because skin flaps had grown over his eyes.

A Dachshund named Obie had a lot of excess skin after losing weight, so he had a tummy tuck -- vets removed more than two pounds of excess skin.
