A French Bulldog Puppy Has Remarkably Begun To Regrow His Jawbone After A Tumor Removal Surgery, Marking The First-Ever Spontaneous Regeneration Case In Canines

The report states that Tyson’s new jawbone is functional with no mandibular drift, a common issue after jaw removal surgery that causes the remaining intact mandible to be pulled toward the center.

His jawbone is missing certain anatomical features, such as teeth and the mandibular canal, both of which cannot be regrown because of the loss of progenitor cells.

Oral examinations confirmed that the cancer had not returned, and Tyson was able to eat and drink with ease.

In conclusion, spontaneous regeneration is unpredictable, and further studies are needed to understand the process, but at least we now know that the phenomenon is possible following jaw removal surgery in young dogs.
