This little boy’s name is Sawyer, and after such a long time of trying to find out what is that thing, here is what we found.

“A Cuterebra” The larva finds an opening in an animal like an eye, nose, mouth or even a small cut in the skin and enters the body that way.


They’ll keep migrating through and actually make a hole to breathe through. Gross! 🤢 If you think your pet has a cuterebra, please DO NOT try to remove it yourself.

These parasites need to be removed in one full piece otherwise, there is a very big chance for an infection or reaction in your pet if a piece is left behind. Call your veterinarian for an appointment right away! 👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️
