A warning for dog owners– from a vet in Ponoka.
Porcupines are out—-and while no–they cant throw their quills like some people believe—they will cause problems—if your dog jumps on them.
And once those quills stick—its tough to get them out—especially if there’s a lot.
Dr. Trevor Hook says dont cut the quills off—-bring your dog to the vet–so they can do it–without hurting the animal. (photo credit–Central Veterinary Clinic-Ponoka)
