Huge Cuterebra Larvae Removed From A Little Kitten’s Neck

We though we’d share more on Cuterebra infestation in cats and show a very large one that came out of this poor kitten. Cuterebra larvae can be found most commonly under the skin of a cat, usually near the head or more commonly neck. They can also make their way to the eyes, respiratory system, or central nervous system where symptoms can become severe and result in death if not treated. It is not uncommon to find one in a cat’s nose. Cats become infected with a Cuterebra larva when they come into contact with piece of grass that has a maggot on it. The maggot then crawls onto the cat and searches around on the cat until it finds a place in which to enter the cat. In many cases, the secondary bacterial infection that develops in the empty cyst once the larva is removed or exits the cat causes more damage to the animal than the primary attack by the Cuterebra.
