While in Escobar, Andy noticed that his dog, Oso wasn't feeling well. He was drooling and lethargic and wouldn't eat. Jeff noticed a small lump in his head and a small bloody opening closing by. Andy and Jeff determined that Oso had an ura (bot fly larva).

The students watching their first medical procedure of the trip...Jeff removing an ura from a dog's head.

Isn't that gross!

Jeff has pulled several of these out of his human patients
