Uh oh….It’s that time of year again!

Please don’t let your dog roam unsupervised – especially at night!
If your dog does tangle with a porcupine, please seek veterinary care immediately! Trying to remove the quills yourself will be very painful and traumatic for your dog and increases the risk of quills breaking off under the skin – and potentially causing serious future problems.
PLEASE DO NOT CUT THE QUILLS!! There is a persistent old wives tale that says if you cut the quills, it lets the air out and makes them easier to remove – this is NOT TRUE – it only makes the quills much harder to remove
