    Hey my sisters dog found a dead headgehog in the garden full of maggots, She started flinging it in the air and ran off wiv it holding it by the arm when my sister tryed to get it of her :eek: Her dog as far as my sister could see ate some of it as she was running wiv it lol, it did look rather funny haha.

    So what we are worried about is if she consumed any maggots, would we have something to worry about ? or would they die in her stomach :eek:?
    Should we get her to a vet?

    I'd get her to the vets as i think maggots will be able to survive

    I dont think there would be a problem because other animals eat them and have no problem digesting them but i would check

    just finding them dead is not cruel you cant do anything about that but watching them toss the hedhogs about and doing nothing is its just my opinion
