Definitely vet the soonest you can. It wasn't a big deal with the pup we had though. Just pulled it right out after taking lots of pics and video of it squirming around lol.

So Cali got to the vet today, and it turns out that Sassafras was right! It was about 3 to 4mm long (apparently). Cali is now stuck with some bandages on her leg for a few days and hopefully it'll look a teensy bit better by then.. although I'm sure I'll be a bit squeamish.

As would I.. even the vet told my mom (as I was working so I couldn't come) that it's one of the grossest things they have to do, and that's saying a lot. She also said she was glad that we caught it early because it only gets grosser because it turns dark and basically grows a spine.

So Cali has to keep her wrap on until her next appointment on Friday morning.. so hopefully she keeps it on because I sure as heck don't want to see what's underneath nor do I want to worry about cleaning it.

Did they pull it or are they removing it Friday?

Don't search for videos of it though. You end up on the weird side of YouTube when you do O.o

They got it out. They waited to see it poke it's head out of the "breathing hole" just to confirm it was in there, then they numbed her leg and made a small incision to get it out.. then disinfected it, gave her a convenia injection (I think that's what it's called) and wrapped it up.. we're just going back on Friday to see how it looks and get the wrap changed and get it cleaned again.

Poor Cali! I'm so glad you found out what it was and had it removed. Ick.

I've seen videos on Youtube of these before... when I was looking into going to South America, I read about them and of course had to watch the videos. I couldn't imagine having one inside of me

Me too! I was just thinking how much worse it'd be if it had fully matured and came out on it's own.. it'd probably be bigger than the width of her leg! I'm still so curious as to how she got one though.. especially since my riding instructor has her two dogs out all the time there. Cali is much closer to the ground though so maybe that's why.

Either way, she won't be going exploring around the barn anymore unless she's picked up.

And neither can I.. apparently there's a larger variety of them that latch onto people. I didn't want to see pictures of them though.. I'm too squeamish. I had a maggot on my lead rope one day at a riding clinic and I screamed and flung the rope around.. with Major on the other end. I also had one on one of his boots.. and just about died all over again.
