My dog Shasta was attacked by a evil porcupine!She got spines all through her face and she even had some in her mouth and also some going all the way though her cheeks.My Mom took her to the vets and they drugged her and then they pulled out the spines.She is now recovering but she has holes all over her face.
Actually I think the middle of nowhere is the best place to find porcupines. Porcupines can be found in Western MD from what I've read. Think of it this way, I bet your dog will never, ever mess with a porcupine again! I hope she feels better! Poor thing.
