My poor Peanut (gross alert)

I was holding Peanut today and felt an odd bump on his flank. At first I thought it was a cat scratch, but it didn't seem right, so I looked at it to see. After poking at it for a minute, IT MOVED. Blech, blech, blech. Not so happy dog either. I had Con help me hold him down and I squeezed the awful thing and out came a larvae of some kind. Poor pup went from wild thrashing to instant calm as soon as it was out.
I cleaned it and made sure there weren't any more, then called the vet. Evidently this is not uncommon, all they said was clean it and put peroxicide on it.

Needless to say, we went over the dogs very throughly!
