maggot wound on upper scapulla (upper shoulder) I appreciate the hard work you have to put in to care for these animals. I’m thankful for the caring and sacrifice that goes hand in hand when a person chooses to dedicate their time to those that other people throw away. So thank you for this. But please. next time make sure the wound is completely numbed before digging around inside for the maggots. Those wounds are inflamed and infected.
