Snagged By The Cactus

Last week Daisy snagged her tail on one of our cactus plants in the backyard.  The needle was about three inches long, with about 1/2 inch imbedded into her tough skin.  I had to use the pliers from the tool box to pull the sucker out, but it ended up breaking off twice.  I am certain there's still a needle tip buried in her tail but she's refusing to let anyone near it.  She stayed away from everyone for about three days even though she didn't have a fever and there was no noticeable swelling.  She seems to be doing much better now - although I have no idea if the needle is still there or not - she's back to her usual antics therefore I'm not too concerned.
