This is heartbreaking. One of the wonderful rescuers in Venezuela asked if we could help with a new case that is very critical. His name is Neron. He was found alone on the side of a busy street that runs along side of the beach. He is defeated. He is skin and bones and he has a gruesome wound at the base of his tail and rear that is so necrotic, worms and larvae have made their home in his flesh. His tail is eaten down to the cartilage. Neron has myiasis: an infestation of maggots. Flies reproduce by laying eggs, which hatch and release maggots. Pets, especially those confined outside or who are weak and debilitated, are particularly susceptible. When the eggs hatch, maggots will begin to feast on any dead or dying tissue. Sometimes they will even begin to eat the healthy tissue. He needs medical care but our colleagues do not have the funds to bring him. They are overwhelmed with dire cases day after day. Please consider donating to Neron so he can get to the clinic immediately for emergency treatment.
