Porcupine Quill Extraction



Porcupines are interesting creatures and they are common here in the Elk Mountains. You can’t really blame your dog for being curious but if he decides to tangle with a porcupine, he is probably going to come out on the losing side of those quills. If that happens, minimize his movement to prevent further migration. Then bring him into our office so we can thoroughly extract all of the quills and prevent infection.
