Thank you for your question regarding warble removal from a tiny kitten’s neck. Warbles are larvae of the Cuterebra fly, and it is important to remove them safely and effectively.
We recommend contacting a veterinarian as soon as possible to ensure the safety of the kitten.
The vet may prescribe a topical anesthetic to numb the area and then carefully remove the warble using tweezers.
If the warble is not visible, the vet may need to perform an x-ray to locate it. In some cases, the vet may prescribe antibiotics to help the kitten recover from any infection caused by the warble. We hope this information is helpful and wish you and your kitten the best.
