I’m so sorry to hear that your kitten is suffering from a big botfly maggot in the nose. It’s important to act quickly so that we can remove the maggot and help your kitten feel better. Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Take your kitten to the vet right away. The vet can use special tweezers to remove the maggot and give your kitten the necessary treatment.
  2. Keep the area around your kitten’s nose clean and dry. This will help prevent the maggot from re-infesting your kitten.
  3. Ask your vet about preventive measures you can take to protect your kitten from botflies. These include using a flea and tick preventative, keeping your kitten indoors, and checking for fleas regularly.

I hope these suggestions help you and your kitten. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions.


In this video you are going to see how a veterinarian going to take a big Botfly from a cat’s nose.


Fortunately the it is still young and haven’t grown that much, so it’s easier to slide it out, and if it was big then the cat would have suffered. so botflies in noses block the breathing system of the cat and makes it so hard for them to inhale or even exhale. So everything went so well after that and she is in good stat now.
