Yes a porcupine got into her area. We've never seen one before. We were at the emergency vet within 15 minutes. An hour later she had been knocked out, quills removed and was ready to come home. The vet said there was just over 20 quills and she was the nicest chow she's ever met. Never want that to happen again.

I have never seen one either. Hope my dog never sees one either. šŸ˜±

Good to know she received prompt treatment and is A-OK.

I'm not allowed to feed the birds anymore. It was attracting the animal. It's a bummer because I was getting some lovely birds. Now I have a massive bag of seed to give away. Lol.

I understand some places have bi-laws against such things.

My mother in law gets through about $20 a week on peanuts in shells for the squirrels but plenty of birds join in too.

Glad to hear Nushka is okay now. Porcupine quills look so painful - good that you were able to get her seen so quickly.

Our doctor is retiring. There is not a single doctor in the Red Deer area accepting patients. More are retiring. There are no new ones coming. We have been advised to ask friends to ask their drs if they will take us on.

What a nightmare.

I keep hearing stuff like that. Provinces trying to incentivise doctors to move too.

You can't just tell yourself you'll be okay because your doc is too young to retire because they may be enticed over the border.
