[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

My beardie had pinworms and coccitia. He shows no signs really. I got him about 2 weeks ago. He is loaded with it tho. He eats his crickets but not his veggies. He's about a year old. should we treat him or no. Is it dangourus to treat them, iv read its more dangourus to treat it then for them to have it.

It depends on how much of both they have. A couple of years ago, Goldie was diagnosed with a #2 (I believe) of pinworms. She had a fecal done about this last June and didn't have any pinworms. If it's a higher #, like 4, you need to treat. Before you let the vets treat, check with Tracie (drache613 is her screen name) or others on here do know, about the meds they are going to give your beardie because some are safe and some aren't. If you do have to medicate him, you also need to give him a probiotic to replace the good bacteria in his system as the meds kill the bad stuff as well as the good stuff.

yes. BTW: when Goldie had been diagnosed with #2 of pinworms the vet wanted to treat her for it, we didn't but it went down to nothing anyway.
