The wound was so severe and infested with maggots that the team at Animal Aid Unlimited thought they would have to put him down.

Originally the team thought euthanizing him would be the best decision, but as the dog stood on the exam table, they decided to give treatment a chance.

They first poured powder into the wound to kill the maggots and then sedated the pup in order to clear the infestation.
