These commonly become lodged in the ears, nose, eyes, skin, throat, prepuce, and between the toes. Depending upon where the foxtail is lodged will govern if the animal requires sedation or an anesthetic to remove it. Foxtails that are not removed can migrate and result in serious pain and infection. Call for information if you think your animal may have a foxtail embedded somewhere.
