Moose antler infested with maggots
I am reaching out to this forum to see if anyone has had a similar experience. I just received 2 new moose antlers from a reputable company I read about on this forum. My 8month old puppy was chewing on this antler last night. About 30 minutes after he was done chewing on it I notice a bunch of "white stuff" by the antler. I went to pick up the antler and look at the "stuff" on the floor to realize the "stuff" was moving. My husband said they were maggots from the antler. I was so grossed out and thought that my dog had been chewing this bone throughout the day terrified me!
I called the vet immediately and they said to watch for vomiting or diarrhea in the next 48 hours. Of course this morning Rocky had diarrhea so I am now taking him to the vet to have him checked. I have the antler for them to analyze and see exactly what it is crawling in the antler.
Has this every happened to anyone before? I cannot tell you how disgusting it was!! had to vacuum and thoroughly clean my family room completely last night,
