My Pup has wound near the eye. It gets infested with maggots. Please advice.


Any type of wound, smelly or wet, may become the perfect spot for flies to lay their eggs. When the eggs hatch, maggots will begin to feast on any dead or dying tissue. Therefore, it is important to keep the wound clean and the underlying problem is treated. Your vet may remove maggots and use topical medicines on wound to kill any maggots infested. He may also advise creams or spray that may help keep the files away.
