When the Death of a Pet is Your Fault.

Pet friendly pest control, St. Louis and Jefferson County Missouri

Today I want to share a terribly sad story of a family friend that lost their beloved animal because of what seemed like a freak mishap, but in reality happens hundreds of times every year.  Before you think it could never happen to your family’s pet I would suggest it could happen to anyone that lives a busy life or has even a few days of distraction.  The following is how Belle lost her life.

Belle ate something that didn’t agree with her and as a result had a bout of diarrhea.  Like most pet owners Belle’s people cleaned up the mess and moved on with Belle spending a little more time out doors for a day or two.  Their concern was more with their carpet than it was for the animal and as a result a patch of fluid fecal material was not removed from the dog’s fur.  The additional time the animal spent outside left her exposed to additional pest, specifically flies that laid eggs in the fecal material.  In the matter of a few days those eggs hatched into maggots that seeking a food source entered the animal’s body through the nearest entrance.

In less than a week maggots had traveled beyond the animals rectrum and by the time they were discovered too much internal damage had been inflicted to save Belle’s life.

Neither your human or animal family should live endangered by pests.
