Ohhh boy, not much turns my stomach but about 10 minutes ago I found a fully bloated leech crawling across the floor....oh so gross!
Switched on the main ceiling light and there's blood everywhere! Cleaned that up and then went searching for the leech's victim. It was poor Sally, one of my new foster greys. The leech had attached itself to between the toes of her front paw.
Anyway, I've given it a good flush with saline and whacked on some betadine.
Anything else I should do for the wound site that I haven't thought of? I will start checking the other dogs feet now to make sure there aren't any other nasties.
How come I can cope with poo, vomit, even open wounds, but one little fat leech has made me feel faint!
