    Please help me! i have 3 ducks that got attacked by one of my dogs and they are badly damaged. all of them have maggots on their wounds, one being particularly the worst. She has approximately ten puncture wounds on her and all of them are FULL of maggots. i have already put saline solution on her and i tried getting as many maggots off of her as i could, but later when i looked at her again she had more places that i hadn't seen and they had A LOT of maggots inside them. i eventually gave up on trying to pick them out with tweezers. The last thing i did was put triple antibiotic on it for the night to see if it will possibly draw out or even kill the maggots. if anybody has any suggestions about what else i should do, it would help alot.

    I just read your post- I'm so sorry I have no experience to help out, but just know someone else feels your pain and understands you'll be up all night. Good luck
