Whip Worms?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

So Franklin has some Whip worm eggs after his vet visit-

Can anyone tell me what's up with these particular worms? I got him on panacur or whatever but I was just curious as to the worms. I've never heard of them, just pin worms

Hello,

Whipworms are not real common in reptiles, but just another type of worm found in the large intestines. They respond to Panacur well so the Panacur should wipe them out.
How is he doing now?
