Everyone’s tryin’ to look pretty these days, and with all the options out there to change our physical appearances, many turn to plastic surgery.. Things are getting shaken up a bit now because it seems that ‘dog plastic surgey’ is a thing. Ya… People are actually paying the big bucks to get their canines looking as ‘beautiful’ as possible.

Brito, who’s been called the world’s go-to dog surgeon, performs procedures to glam up canines’ appearances: Botox to perk up the ears of a Doberman, nose jobs, face-lifts and testicular implants such as Neuticles to help neutered pets regain their masculinity…Not all pooches go under the knife to become more photogenic.

As previously reported by The Post, New Yorkers have spent up to $8,000 a month on pet “maintenance” such as nail painting, shrinks, chiropractors and massages.
