Losing Your Breath… To A Point.

Many porcupine encounters are a simple fix but more serious injuries can occur, requiring intensive care. Such was the case of a German Shorthaired Pointer mix named Hank. Animal Emergency Center’s April Bays wrote a case study about Hank’s critically injuring porcupine encounter featured in the NAVTA Journal.

Our hearts go out to Hank’s family and we wish to share his story with the medical community for educational purposes.
