Dr. Karri from Vet Ranch was at a local shelter doing her routine check of the animals when she saw Speck, the kitten. All the kittens living at the shelter has some eye issues, and Dr. Karri took them all back to her clinic to give them a proper exam.

Warning: Some of the images below are graphic, proceed with caution! Speck’s ear was red and angry looking – and he would wince every time Dr. Karri touched it.

The source of the inflammation was deeper than she thought, so, Dr. Karri couldn’t really see what the problem was – Speck was prepped for emergency surgery!

With Speck sleeping peacefully under anesthesia, Dr. Karri was able to see the cause of the inflammation – there was an insect larva buried into Speck’s head! Gross!

Happily, there was only one larva, and Dr. Karri grabbed onto one end of the creature and slowly pulled. It took a few minutes to coax the nasty bug out, but Dr. Karri was able to extract it in one piece!

Dr. Karri admits that she had never seen anything quite like that before.

She contacted the shelter and told them to inspect all the animal cages to be sure nothing like that could happen again.
