coccidia cleaning

Postby natnat » Thu May 06, 2021 3:50 am

My 7 mo old is getting treated for coccidia right now and I've been steam cleaning the cage daily and whenever he poops I try to remove it as soon as possible. My question is, sometimes he doesn't poop before I go to work and I don't remove the poop for a few hours, will this make coccidia reinfection worse? Should I have someone come by to remove any poop while I'm gone or will having it sit in the tank a few hours be ok?

I think as long as you clean it up and sanitize well when you get home, it should be OK. If he winds up running through it or getting it on himself/smearing it, then I'd give him a bath in warm water with some baby mild soap. Otherwise, just clean and sanitize it when you can get to it.
