Myiasis (fly strike)

Appeal for material

Dr Richard Doughty is a medical pathologist and a vet with a life long interest in entomology and specifically myiasis (in both humans and animals). He is interested in the frequency that myiasis (fly strike) occurs in pet rabbits. As a histopathologist, Dr Doughty would like some skin/wound samples from rabbit with myaisis. The samples can either be tissue that has been debrided from a wound or collected from rabbits that were euthanased because of their condition.He wants to know more about pathological/morphological  process that is occurring in the tissues in and around the wound site. He can be contacted by e-mail at .
