Cuterebra in a kitten | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Videos

In this VETgirl online veterinary video, lo, the biggest Cuterebra ever! Cuterebra are large, bee-like flies whose larvae cause disease by entering the host via wounds or via the mouth, nose, or eyes. The larva can migrate within the body, and rarely systemic signs of illness can be seen. When in doubt, adequate visualization, sedation/analgesia, and careful removal is imperative.
