Ran across this link http://www.doomandbloom.net/start-here/ some practical info on there.

As far as using vet meds, oral antibiotics, often sold as "fish" ones, can be useful. Unless you know what you're doing and have no other choice, injectable antibiotics can be bad news, best get some ephedrine while you're there, in case of anaphylactic shock and have someone who knows how to use it.

How to remove Porcupine quill from the mouth a big Pit Bull.

Need serious tranquillizer, we've done it before, using Percocet.Probably not the best, but what we had. Need something better.

See a veterinarian but don't be surprised if they can't dispense it to you. My Black lab has seizures about once a year. Some are fairly mild but he has gone into rolling seizures where he gets one after another after another. He gets so heated up and they are so violent that we'd never make it to the vet in time. On our vet's recommendation we give him 10CC of a humansedative rectally. We keep a single dose onhand. The vet informed us the last time we got a dose that he might not be able to give us another due to new pharma rules. RD

Thanks RD, I feel for you and your dog, My son had a boxer and it just kept getting worse.
Our old Dog was a Black Lab/Pitt Bull, she loved them porcupines.
My new pup might just walk on by, she's a Pitt Bull and not as likely to go exploring. More of a recliner and get fat dog. She's on a diet.
