Anyone ever have an animal with these puke worthy parasites? I have looked them up on the net & have seen & done more than enough to pass out. Just wondering. I'm taking care of them but this really sucks. :cry:

Yes, They get in my horses back now and then and it's not uncommon to find them in squrrels in Aug or Sept. They are caused by a fly laying eggs in an open wound, it does not even have to be big enough to see really. Never see them in cooler weather.

The way we get them out is get a soda bottle with a smooth mouth(not a twist off) and open the sore a little,place the bottle mouth over the sore and smack the bottom of the bottle pretty hard and the larve will shoot out, sort of like popping a zit! After that just take a syringe and shoot a little peroxide in the sore and it will heal up in no time. This sure beats sucking them out like snake venom!

It was a nightmare. Disgusting. Completely. Ya, it was like a big huge zit. The grossest thing I ever had to do. The thing was I didn't know she had them til I saw blood on her back. One had actually grew off her & hatched!!! She's a long haired dog & it completely covered it. When I found out she had more I was in shock. I had to squeeze the wounds & squirt this antiseptic blue crap in there w/a long hooked syringe. Bleck bleck bleck. There were different suggestions on care between vaselene & smoking it out w/a bottle & tweezers so I just went w/ the vet after I cut the top off & squeezed one of em out & flushed it w/the hose! I hear that could have potentially killed the dog because of the toxins from the worm. I can not even begin to tell you what happened the one time! If ever I experience this horror again, Ill try the soda bottle tap method! Thank you so much for your suggestion. It's the best one so far.

My guess is you forgot to duck! Or you forgot to keep your mouth closed.

Don't recall ever seeing any dogs with these, but any animal can potentially get them...

Sounds like you had a rough time with it, guess you had better leave cleaning the glands below the tail to the vet, I had a bad experience with that myself.....I prefer a good horse anyday...

I know squirrels get them all the time around here. I always heard that one or twqo hard frosts and that clears them up on the squirrels. That is why you should wait during squirrel season for a good frost before you go hunting.

I don't know how true this is. It is just something my grandfather always told me. I have not seen one with a warble since I have folloewed his advice..
I don't think your dog would like being left outside when It is freezing. although my dogs refuse to come in until it gets to about 0-10 deg outside. :wink:

I forgot to wear safety glasses! :shock:
Was an outside dog. Loved laying in the snow til she was covered! My husband always fed her & my daughter played w/her. I hardly ever saw her. I should have taken the poor thing for a shave down. The dipshit would get loose & roll in all sorts of nasties but I didn't pay attention as much as I should've. Just took her swimmin in the summer. The dog was a bitch to walk. :oops: The warbles actaully made the wounds I believe? There were a few other bumps (larvae), but like you said KTM they died off w/the cold. Thank God!
I should also add she ran away for the last time round the beginning of July. She was 12 1/2 years old. Jo was a great dog. I still look for her to be standing by her coop even now. She was lookin a bit weary but figured it was old age... I think she knew it was her time.

We've since tried to replace her guard dog post but the turd can't hack the cold so he's back in (but now it's the the basement) til spring. :roll:
