    羽毛笔沿着羽毛笔的轴具有非常小的单向倒钩。这种方式很容易让羽毛笔继续向内移动!

    Your veterinarian is best-equipped to remove quills. Quill removal is painful and quills may break off inside your pet. Removing quills under anesthesia reduces traumatic removal/quill breakage and allows for more thorough checking. (All muscles and skin are relaxed, making it easier to palpate for quills).

    Throwing quills: Contrary to popular belief, the porcupine cannot “throw” the quills, but they are easily “let go of” by the porcupine and embedded in animals who tangle with it.

    Quills working their way out: Quills may get infected and work themselves out, but most often, they continue to work inward. I once treated a dog who the people tried to treat at home. They removed what quills they could, then figured the rest would work their way out. A few weeks later, we saw the dog covered in abscesses all over the body from the remaining quill tips.

    Breaking quills: Some people advocate crushing the quill to “let the air out” of it, but quills are like the shaft of a feather. This doesn’t work; they just get more splintery.

    1. Minimize movement. Quills embedded in the chest and legs may migrate in further.
    2. 打电话给你的兽医大多数情况下,羽毛笔在麻醉期间被移除,并且狗在同一天回家。对于严重的病例,可能需要X射线,超声波和手术来寻找内部嵌入的羽毛笔。
    3. 拉出羽毛笔是有风险的羽毛笔很容易折断,拔出羽毛笔时“绷紧”皮肤可能会烧伤附近的羽毛笔,使它们几乎无法移除。
