I was horrified to find that my 4 month old kitten had a hole in his neck and something was in there that I sure didn't expect. I found out that it was a cuterebra. It's the larvae from these really big flies that we have out here in the country. I was trying to kill that thing using 3-4 drops of Purification throughout the day and the Animal Scent ointment. It wasn't killing it.
My DH and I pulled out the maggot with ease once I bought a small enough pair of tweezers to get into that hole. So that hole was pretty small to begin with. I didn't think I needed to do anything else once it was removed. I thought getting it out of there and using the oils I had already used was good enough.
About a week later his neck was infected. It looked pusy and red. So, I made up a diluted bottle of Melrose since it said that it will stop infection. I put a drop or two on the wound about every 2 hours for about 2 days.
One the 2nd day we were having a bday party for my son. I still was putting on the Melrose but not as consistent as I was the day before. That night about 10 PM I go to put on another application when I see something that makes my stomach drop.
I forgot to mention that the hole that started out so small that I couldn't get a pair of regular tweezers in there grew to about the size of a quarter.
So it looked like the hole split on the side where there was healthy skin and I could see the meat underneath. To say I was upset after seeing this is an understatement.
My aunt who is a nurse was there and I asked her to take a look at it. She said that is was a pretty big wound but it wasn't infected. She said that she would take him to the vet. She also said that what I thought was pus was actually rotting flesh.
Of course it's a Saturday night but I was going to take him to the emergency vet. My DH said no way take him in Monday morning the kitten would be fine. Now I have full blown anxiety. I was very upset about this.
I would like to mention that during this time he acted like a perfectly healthy kitten. He's eating, drinking, playing and climbing trees. But you had to see his neck! It looked so awful.
The next day I talk to a girlfriend and tell her what is going on and she told me a story of her cat years ago that developed an abscess on it's neck the size of a Lemon. She took it to the vet and he lanced and drained it and said it
takes a long time but you just let it heal. She said the hole on his neck was the size of a half dollar. I talked to another friend who said almost the same thing about her cat and the vet said to just let it heal.
OK... I feel better now and make a blend of Helichrysum and Lavender with V-6. I applied it twice a day. The green rotting flesh began moving out of the hole. I never saw it move but each time I went and applied the blend I saw that it had moved over more.
So this rotten flesh slowly "crawled" out of the hole over the next few days. I couldn't pull it off. What was still in the hole was very much attached. What moved out of the hole crusted up like a scab and just flaked off.
It took about 4-5 days for the green rotting flesh to "crawl" out of the hole. So bizarre. Once all that rotten flesh was out of there, the speed that that hole closed up was truly amazing.
I think it would have closed up after a week but then he scratched it and made it bleed. So, I think it took a few extra days to heal after that but the last little scab fell off and it completely healed!
The hair also grew back. Without any scarring. You could never tell anything had ever happened to his neck. I think I literally used 6 drops of oil which saved us several hundred if my DH let me take him to the emergency vet. How great is that?!
I thank God for Young Living everyday! What a blessing.
