My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ yars. It does not look like your other question posted. Can you tell me more about what is going on? Is there an open wound that has maggots?


Expert:  Joan replied 1 year ago.

I am going off line and you have not viewed my request. So I will opt out and another expert can assist.

Of course, I would keep her indoors till she heals completely.

Please let me know how she is doing.
