Oscar the raccoon is not like many other raccoons you may have come across in your life. This little guy seems to think he is a dentist! In this video, Oscar attempts to examine the teeth of his canine friend, Prince, who sits patiently (although a bit reluctantly) while the raccoon paws open his mouth.

As the YouTube description explains, Oscar is a pet raccoon, and the Beagle is his sibling. While how Oscar came to live with a family of humans and dogs is unknown, he might have been rescued by the video’s creator. Raccoons are certainly not meant to be pets, however, this little guy seems to have acclimated into the family.


Note on the cat who walks by this silly spectacle: we wonder if she is set to be Oscar’s next patient! Either that or she is simply not having it and retreating before she is called in for her turn.
