Mango Worms (*Careful*)

***WARNING! Animal parasitic maggot infestation – although very tame removal, still proceed with caution if you are an animal sensitive person. Please watch by choice, and comment with respect. 🙂 END WARNING***

This completes the trio of Mango Worm (Cordylobia anthropophaga) removals do**ZIT**ented by the treating veterinary clinic in Gambia. This one only shows a couple of actual worms removed, but you can see by the small **ZIT**ps on this dogs body, there is some work to be done. However, from what is shown, this dog may have avoided the level of infestation that the other two dogs experienced.

The Gambian vet clinic sees 5-10 cases per week, and do employ preventative measures using certain topicals and medicines. But each maggot that does get inside must be individually removed manually. The worst cases are those with 800+ mango worms. While it can be fatal, they do the very best they can for both pets and “community cared for” animals.

Thanks for completing the set, Zitani!!!
