PSA – THE BOTFLY

9/26/22 – This past summer we covered the removal of more botflies than we have had in our 12 years operating as 4 Paws 1 Heart. This is what one looked like on a recent rescue and what it looked like after the removal. Hopefully, though a little graphic, this is meant to help with anyone coming across such a ‘thing’. For more information, look up ‘botfly’ or the ‘Cuterebra’ through your favorite search engine. You’ll be surprised that cats are not the only hosts of this invasive parasite. – diana.
