This is a follow-up to the previous blog about Maynard and Emma and a porcupine!
This is what Maynard found out, on how to remove porcupine quills, if you need to yourself and can not get to a vet.
Cut the end of the quill to release the air inside. Grab the quill as close to the skin as possible and then pull. Sounds painful to me!!
Maynard's vet, however, did give him some Rimadyl to tranquilize her in case this happens again. Fortunately, we have practically no porcupines in our area, or we would have the tranquilizers!
