Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Porcupine Attack

Calypso the 2-year-old Boxer had some unfortunate luck recently. She had a run in with a porcupine and got to experience the frightening and painful quills. Sadly, one of the quills punctured her lung and caused pneumothorax which is a collapsed lung. Calypso spent time at the emergency veterinary clinic where she had surgery.

She is doing better since the attack and we are very glad that we could be there to help during such a scary time.
