From an Infested Female Dog

**Consider MUTE as well**
This is a video for the botfly/mangoworm/myiasis fanatics out there in PTZ land. It is being posted despite its graphic nature because the outcome is G-O-O-D! I think the (rough) translation describes the situation the best:
“The objective of making this video is to show the gross negligence with animals that need care. Resources were not in place,
Before you get disgusted, keep in mind that the grubs were not extracted fast the next step would be a the death of the female dog by screwworm.
Today she is vaccinated and is as healthy as any other dog.
Botfly or dermatobiosis is an infection caused by a larval stage, type of disease known fly Dermatobia hominis, popularly known in Brazil as the blowfly, which infects many animals.”
If you choose to watch the video with volume, you will hear the gentleman huffing and puffing with his efforts to remove the larva. The dog is very weak, and in obvious discomfort – but as was stated, it had to be done as quickly as possible. I would imagine that perhaps where the dog was found was far from the neccessary facilities. Given how many maggots you can see… it is perfectly understandable that time was short – these things were literally wasting this poor dog’s life away. I am so happy she is well and healthy now!!! This can happen just as easily right here in America. I won’t do my soapbox (*cough* Adopt! *hack* Rescue! *ahemmmm* vet care!) but will now let you get to the viewing of the video.
The doggie is all better, be happy!!!!

Antes de ficar com nojo, lembre-se de que se os bernes não fossem extraídos rápido o próximo passo seria uma bicheira e óbito da cadela.
Hoje ela está vacinada e passa bem como qualquer outro cão com saúde.
