After biting down onto a steel pipe during training, Kobo, 86th Security Forces Squadron military working dog, underwent two non-surgical procedures for the extraction of his upper incisors and a surgical extraction of his upper fourth premolar at Pulaski Veterinary Clinic, Pulaski Barracks, Germany, Aug. 25, 2017. Due to the nature of their work, these K-9s are prone to dental injuries and depend on local dental clinics to help keep them in good working condition. (U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Savannah L.

Army, Air Force band together for Airman’s best friend

Mouth x-rays of Kobo, 86th Security Forces Squadron military working dog, appear on a computer screen as U.S. Air Force Capt. Christianna Moore, 86th Dental Squadron general dentist, takes a turn during a surgical dental procedure for Kobo at Veterinary Medical Center Europe, Pulaski Barracks, Germany, Aug. 25, 2017. Soldiers and Airmen joined forces to take digital radiographs of Kobo’s teeth in a faster and more efficient way than using the self-developing radiograph films by using Ramstein Dental Clinic’s digital radiograph sensor and computer software with Veterinary Medical Center Europe's portable x-ray unit.
