My dog, Tina has a lot of fur, she got wet, and laid in water for 2 days. The flies laid maggots on her coat and by her foot. I don't have the money to take her to the vet what can I give her for pain? Regina

Dear Regina,

You might call a shelter or groomer who can help you clean her up and remove the maggots. Sometimes there can be more that you don't notice right away. You will need help in getting this done because it will be uncomfortable cleaning the raw tissue. To help with pain and encourage healing you can give Promaxol orally. I hope you have gotten this treated by now because this can't wait.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
