Default Curled Quill

I found a quill on my hedgehog that has started to hook back toward his skin. Is there something I could/ should do about it?

Default Re: Curled Quill

Lily used to get those a bit, and I remember a few threads about them from other people on here. You can use nail clippers and clip the end off so that it won't poke them or grow back into the skin - Lily had one or two that did that and I took her to the vet to get them removed.
