Definately get another opinion... something is not right. Someone already stated that maggots only eat dead tissue. If your dog has necrotic tissue forming .... something is WRONG. You need to get this checked out... it could lead to a massive infectinon and death could be the result.

And just to add, have you been properly briefed on what is going to be done about the situation you have?

Yah maggots are definitely something you need to see the vet about. They won't eat into his organs but still, you should see a vet.

We had a cat come in once that had a hole, about a half inch in diameter, that had maggots falling out of it (yes, falling out of the hole, sickest thing I've ever seen) but the cat was OK after we cleaned away the dead tissue and patched up the hole.

So, yes, vet time.

Okay seriously, if my dog had HOLES in him and I was pulling maggots out of said holes, I would be in a car on my way to the emergency vet so fast it would make your head spin (after I got done puking because that is just disgusting). Even if it is one of the few bug larvae that will eat living tissue: BUGS ARE LIVING ON YOUR DOG! Do something about that! It is not in any way normal and the common name of all creatures that live off other living creatures is parasites.

If the first vet you went to won't tell you what is going on and how you can stop what is happening (though that makes my mind boggle just in and of itself), find one who will.

I found this http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you...lf_worm_in_dog it is not much info but this could be what is going on. I have heard of this before but I don't really know where to get good info on it. I don't think this is very common but I think it is higher if you live in a hot climate. Growing up I was told not to keep a dog outside very long if they had an open wound because bugs or worms or whatever could get in. Keep your dog inside until he heals and contact a vet. It seems to me the vet would clean and remove these things/worms. My advice is vet, keep him clean and keep him inside.
