How Do Dogs Get Mango Worms?
How do mango worms get into dogs? Female mango flies typically lay their eggs in soil that has been contaminated with feces or urine.

When your dog rests, rolls or walks on this bare contaminated ground, young larvae can burrow their way into their skin. This process is often painless, and your dog likely won’t even notice anything is different.

Once the mango larvae have successfully entered their host, they continue to grow for 2-3 weeks by feeding on the dogs’ tissues.

After around three weeks, you may notice your dog’s skin erupting in red boils. Unfortunately, these boils contain maggot worms that will soon burst from the skin to continue their life cycle outside of your dog. Boils on a dog’s skin containing mango worms

Can Mango Worms Kill Dogs?
While mango worms are often not a fatal parasite, they’re still not something you want your dog to come in contact with. It’s important to seek medical attention for your dog as soon as you notice signs of an infection. If left untreated, serious consequences can arise.

Where Do Mango Worms Live?

Typically mango worms enter their host through a dog’s feet.

However, depending on the points of contact between the infected soil and your dog, mango larvae can enter your pet through their ears or nose, which can be extremely dangerous. Brain damage can occur if the larvae are able to move freely.

What Are the Symptoms of Mango Worms in Dogs?
Mango worms are difficult to spot right away, as the larvae enter the host painlessly and often lie undetected until it’s time for them to continue on their way. However, there are a few ways to spot an ongoing infestation. Watch your dog closely for signs such as:

Scratching and biting incessantly;
The formation of pimple-like boils on your dog’s skin (refer to image below);
Behaving oddly.
Do note that these signs can lead to a plethora of different causes. The only way to truly know what is plaguing your dog is by making an appointment with your veterinarian.

Removing Mango Worms: How It’s Done
The process of removing mango worms from your dog’s skin is certainly not for the faint of heart, and you may decide to leave the heavy lifting to your vet (I certainly would!). We recommend seeking professional help as your dog may need to be prescribed antibiotics following the removal of the maggots.

Typically, mango maggots are removed from your dog by squeezing and popping the boils that form on his skin (refer to earlier video). This will subsequently eject the maggot from its residency. The wound should be cleaned immediately following this extraction.
