Worm overload

Postby BOSSdabeardie » Thu Dec 01, 2011 7:57 am


So I just got my results back on my fecal test and boss has a severe case of worms. The lady said there were 20-30 worm eggs per section. I just got my first two doses of panacur mixed with strongid and flangy??? not sure on last one. I have to give 1 dose every two weeks. I also boought some zoomed wipe out 1 for my tank, so i can clean every day if needed. Any suggestions

So sorry your post got missed!
How are things going with the treatments for worms?
Just make sure you use paper towels & not a loose substrate to help get rid of bacteria that can harbor in the substrate.

Bleach might come in helpful here too... I stripped Taz's cage down when it was suspected he had worms. Put news paper down in the bottom, and the only decoration was his basking spot. Every time he went, I cleaned it up immdeiatly. I initially soaked everything in one part bleach, 10 parts hot water for 15 minutes (thanks to some wonderful advice on here) and thereafter every thing the poop possibly touched, I did the same with. I don't know of zoo med will kill it all, but there's not much bleach can't kill! If you go this route, be sure to rinse everything very well several times and let totally air dry. Good luck!
