Customer Question

We have barn female just had kittens about 2 or 3 months ago. They have been doing great. But just last week we noticed that one was limping around. We though maybe he had just hurt his paw. Yesterday I picked him up to check out his paw and there was a 1/4 hole between his neck and shoulder. There appears to be some kind of parasite in there, do you know what it would be? What should I do? What treatment is there.
