Hydrating while on albon for coccidia

Postby Brittneesmile » Thu Jan 03, 2019 4:23 pm

So my beardie has high levels of coccidia. She is on albon. Today was her third day of the medication. She has her appetite still, she is still eating the greens she is interested in and her super worms.
She won’t drink water though. I’ve tried dropping it plainly on her nose and she just will ignore it or close her eyes. I’ve tried the apple juice in water and also plain apple juice. She does not care for any of it.
I heard that butternut squash is hydrating? I’m wondering if I can feed her butternut squash organic baby food and maybe hydrate her that way?
Im sorry if this isn’t meant for this thread. I’m just very nervous she will have issues from her medication and no water. :/ this is my first time giving her meds.

Hello,

Yes, you can definitely give some butternut squash if she just wont drink fluids. You could add a
small amount of water to it for some extra fluids that way also.
Too bad she didn't like the apple juice. You can also try cranberry, grape or black cherry juice, too.
How is she doing today?

She’s doing good, she at her worms this morning and a couple pieces of arugula. She’s still good color. I gave her a bath. She sat with me for a couple hours and then wanted to be back in her tank after I tried to feed her water lol
I’m gonna try the squash tomorrow. I also bought some soy yogurt to for the probiotic

Hello,

Sorry she is having a hard day today!
Keep trying to get her hydrated. The squash & yogurt will hopefully help her out. Does she
have a black beard?
