I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Maya, please?

You appear to be describing the bacterial endotoxemia caused by the ingestion of putrefying bacteria in such a carcass. Bacterial toxins migrate across the intestinal wall and into the blood stream. This is best addressed by hospitalization on IV fluids and antibiotics.
