    This is so painful to look at!! Dogs and porcupines are a prickly pair when they come in contact with each other.
    This Facebook post on Saturday July 11th from Veterinary Emergency Center of Canton shows a dog named “Kona” after a run in with a porcupine. “Kona” is said to be doing very well, after going under anesthesia to have many quills removed. However, most likely very sore from the experience. Just last year in Oregon, there was a police k9 on pursuit of a suspect that had a similar experience…..
    https://www.foxnews.com/us/oregon-k-9-officer-porcupine-quills He took some time off from work and recovered nicely. But another painful experience I’m sure!! Porcupines are not a critter to mess with. And their quills are very dirty, which can also cause infection. Quills can easily release from a porcupine once touched. They have barbs on the end making them difficult to remove. Can porcupines shoot their quills? According to Wildlife Detective……….
    No, they are used as a deterrent, to scare off enemies. As long as they’re not touched, they will not release.
    Wow right? In San Diego we’re used to our dogs getting skunked.  And just like our occasional scuffle with a skunk, according to this post porcupines are a pretty common occurrence in Connecticut.  Porcupines in California are a rare siting…..
    But nevertheless, always be aware on trails, as we have enough wildlife of our own to cause trouble.

    Hittin some parks and trails this Spring and Summer?

    Make sure your pet is up to date on vaccines!!!

    Never be too busy to maintain good health.
    There are weekend shot clinics and in store clinics… no excuse.

    And don’t think because you don’t see a sick dog that your dog isn’t being exposed. Your dog might pass through an infected area.
    Did you know that parvo can last in an area for 6months to a year?
    Be safe, keep vaccines up to date👍
    If your hiking through trails, parasite and tick control is also a good idea.

    Happy hiking! 🌞🐾🌳🐾❤🐾

    No time to give the dog a bath & friends are on the way? Try this! I love this stuff. Yes baths are always better, but when you’re in a hurry sometimes like me, this is great 😉
    You can pick it up just about anywhere……
    Walmart, pet stores, & some vet clinics.
