    These started a couple weeks ago. I thought they were bite wounds but after reading some posts here I wondered if they were bots. I dosed him with antibiotics a couple times in boo balls, but I don’t see him everyday. Will he be ok by the looks of these?

    Sorry for duplicates

    If those are the only two bots he should be fine. Try to keep him hydrated and fed.

    They are bots and surprisingly enough he will be ok.
    The upper bot looks about ready to emerge, the lower one
    s getting close and likely will emerge soon after.
