maggot wound in dogs

I have a little unusual question. This is about a general situation and not any individual. Often we come across dogs who have wounds on heads, shoulders, back etc. infested with maggots. These range from holes in puppies to huge gaping wounds where my hand would go in. Not only can the opening of the wounds be very large, the maggots make tunnels and eat the flesh under the skin and burrow under the skin. The wound stinks of decaying flesh and is usually whitish with whitish exudate. Most often such dogs are very restless and can't even eat. They are also in great discomfort and pain. When the wound remains unattended the dogs become extremely debilitated and can be found lying in some corner of the road. The strong ones fight and survive longer than the weaker ones. But maggots are always found on wounds in dogs at places where they cannot lick. Can you all knowledgeable people tell me some homeopathic remedy that will help them? If you need further details, I'll try my best to answer. Thank you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
All recent studies show that maggots are good for the wound, they clean up petrifying flesh.

Other general remedies for wound could be administered like Arnica etc.

Uncontrolled maggot infestation is not at all good. It may be that they are present because there is decaying flesh because some wounds cannot be cleaned by animals. However, it is true that if maggot infested wounds are not near vital organs or the head, they heal very quickly once the maggots are removed. this is why I wanted to ask how maggots can be removed.
