10,000 dollars in vet bills later…
Two other dogs too; and the yellow pair look a bit like the dog from my old office. That’s sad even if it is part of the nature of things.
Pip should count his lucky stars he’s not an outdoor cat in Sask.!
Is this for real? I can’t imagine a dog continuing an attack on a porcupine after suffering even one-tenth the damage of this dumb mutt.
Pit-bulls are not known for their self control and intelligence.
No porc! No porc!
Socialized medicine for dogs, obviously.
You would say that, Mr Puppy Picture! 🙂
We had actually a girl in the office that was arguing that here dog should be covered by our health plan because she did not had kids.
…cutting the ends off the quills with scissors makes it easier to slide the barbs out…squeezing the trapped air in an un-trimmed quill pushes the tiny barbs out, gripping tighter…
That sounds like a good tip.
I’d get the dog a sedative get some tweezers and do it for 5 grand
I think you have to use pliers to remove porcupine quills.
You have to snip the quills to release the air inside of them before pulling them out. It makes it a whole lot easier.
You’ll never see a cat picture like that.
OMG! Poor thing. Imagine the pain.
My Husky would not learn his lesson. Got poked three times. Had them removed at the vet. One (or more) got missed and migrated down onto his heart. Had four liters of fluid removed ($3500) and I had to put him down about 2 weeks later. The vet said he would do open heart surgery (for $3500) on him but 7 years is a pretty good run for a Husky (IMO).
He wanted a beard?
