Default Grossest dog experience ever!!

I've been treating what I thought was an infected spider bite on Raven's leg...I could see a bite mark and it was full of pus with a lump around it. I was applying Tea Tree oil every few hours and it was helping...the lump had gone down and was draining. Then, today, I gave him a bath and decided to give the area a little squeeze, just to see if anything came out. Well imagine my surprise when a WORM popped out!!!!!! It was the most disgusting thing ever....I totally screamed, and I'm not a squeamish person. I guess my "spider bite" was actually a fly bite, complete with an egg. I can't believe that thing was eating my baby!! It certainly payed....my boss squished it for me lol.

Should I have a vet look at it? Is there any disease he could have gotten or could there be more in there? It was pretty big...a good 1/2" long, so if there was another one I would think the lump would have been bigger.

On a different note, I got him another interactive toy. Supposedly it was of "medium difficulty". I figured since he's had only one other interactive toy, it would take him a bit to "get it". Want to guess how long it took him to figure it out? About 60 seconds. So much for that...!

I put hydrogen peroxide on it, and I'm continuing with the TTO. Haha glad I would not be alone!

Yikes!! I hope it's a Texas fly that doesn't like the cold weather. I once found a larva growing in my handknit wool hat that I'd left out in the garden. That was quite a shocker to feel and then see something movin in my hat. It was in a cocoon.

OMG! You sure it wasn't an extraterrestrial alien? Way too creepy for my blood. (I thought this was going to be an anal gland post!) Is Raven on any parasite preventive medication? I always err on the side of caution. I'd beat feet to the vet if it were me, but that's just how I am.

If you want to make sure the wound is empty then you need to cut off the oxygen to the site. With people you would tape plastic wrap over it, or use petroleum jelly (not sure how to make that work on a dog!!).

This of course depends on the type of parasite larva you were dealing with, but I believe most of them do need a source of oxygen. If you cut off the oxygen, they will come to the surface of the wound trying to get air.


Depends on your climate as to exactly what type of fly it was.

How large was the larva?

Hey, just a note, if you use tea tree oil on an area the dog can lick it can cause paralysis. Please confirm with your vet that they feel the product you are using is safe
