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 massive infestation they do die of it, yes. But in general adult dogs don’t get that bad. Puppies are always at risk for massive 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.”
