Delightful Cuterebra Removal From A Kitty’s Nose

This “before and after” a visit to our vet shows just how crummy this cat was feeling before he went.

then upon his return felt much better and enjoyed some snacks.

He had a large cuterebra surgically removed from his nose and both he and we felt a huge relief once the offending critter was removed. Cuterebra are the larval stage of the botfly and as they begin to emerge.

they make a breathing hole in the host animal until they make their way out. Eww. They are definitely from hell and if you want nightmares, Google them.
