I got some interesting information about Mangoworms, from the vet who posted this video, that I thought would be great to share here:
Q: Can a dog die from this?
A: “If it comes to this m**ZIT**ive infestation they do die of it, yes. But in general adult dogs don’t get that bad. Puppies are always at risk for m**ZIT**ive infestations with follow up problems as they don’t move around too much and lay in there own contamination.”
Q: Are there preventative measures?
A: “Yes, you can protect the animal by using Avermectins. I generally use Ivermectin s.c. but Selamectin or Moxidectin spot-on works well, too. It protects for 3-6weeks against new infestations. Once the maggots are inside you have to remove them manually.”
Q: How many times do you see this, weekly or monthly?
A: “I see this 5-10x every week.”
