There should be a systematic process in the treatment of maggot wounds efficiently.
There should be the final inspection for dead maggots. Although the wound is closing by >50%, there may be dead maggots inside. I advised my assistant to use the curved forceps to check. He disbelieved my suggestion that there might be maggots since the wound had closed by over 50%.
He did the 360-degree scan twice using the forceps. 4 dead maggots were extracted. The dog went home. The wound should close uneventfully. Dead maggots would have delayed closure.
