Medication for Coccidia and Oxyurid

Postby bubbababy99 » Sat Jan 19, 2013 7:39 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi , I took my guy Capone to the vet to get a fecale done , due to odd bowel movements.... And he came back with Coccidia Isospora 3++ and Pin Oxyurid 4+.... I am having to now wait till Monday to talk to the vet to get the medication unfortuantely!!... And she told me is going to cost roughly 65.00 plus taxes... So my questions is does anyone know of a good website that delivers medication to Canada?.. To be completly honest , I am very nervous about buying the medication online , but I have heard serveral people mentioning buying it over the internet on here... And does any one know , do I need to clean out my feeders tank with ammonia/bleach?.. and throw the rest of them out? and buy new ones :( .... I am aware that I need to clean the tank and all the decore in it ... there's no issue there! Also does anyone know where to get or a website I can find Pedialte and AcidophilZ+ to purchase .... And AcidophliZ will act as a probiotic correct or am I going to need to get that as well?...

So I'm not aware of a site in Canada but there are two sites in the states where you can get meds and probiotics (like Acidopholuz):

www.bug-de-lite.com This site belongs to Tracie, who's a moderator here and knows as much as any vet, if not more. If you need to contact her about anything, her PM is drache613, this is who I get everything I need from, as I know Tracie very well. I know the shipping to Canada is very reasonable.

www.beardeddragon.co is a store run by Cheryl, who's a breeder and knows also alot about medications and how they work. The prices are comparible. I'm not sure of the shipping cost to Canada, but I know she does ship to Canada.

Hope this helps you get what you need. I know the meds are the same, they're just less expensive online.
Take care, good luck with your beardie,
Deb

Here is also something that Cheryl posted about giving your beardie the meds. First to give the meds 1st thing when your dragon has warmed up, then a probiotic 2 hours later, this makes sure the medicine starts working right away and the probiotic puts good bacteria back into their digestive system to help them with their food. Then feed your dragon as you normally do.

It's hard to determine if the parasites were caused by feeders or just in the beardies gut from stress or something else. I've never cleaned out the feeder bin of any of my feeders if my dragons got parasites, and they got over them just fine. But that's just me.

OMG , Thank you so much , you've been of a great help!!! You lead me right to source, nothing better than that!! I'm supposed to be getting the medication on Tuesday , So i guess I better get on the website and some probiotic!!!! I guess I will ask the people whom own the site's (I'll pm the names you gave me) and perhaps they can point me right in the direction of the correction medication and doseage! That's my main concern!!! I don't want to get something that is going to stress him out and not help him :S.... Is there also fecal sample kits on there too?..

Yes, Cheryl's store sells fecal kits, not sure about Tracie. To contact Cheryl, look her up on Facebook, then send her a message. To contact Tracie, pm her on here (push the PM button under your info on the right) at drache613. They're both knowledgeable about meds, etc, but I've always gone to Tracie for analysis as she's got the knowledge of a great vet. So good luck with your baby!

I don't think it matters, if it comes up, just tell them you were able to get the medication at a less expensive price. It's your decision, not the clinic's on where you get your meds. And I know alot of people who buy from Cheryl or Tracie, just because they have them cheaper and know what the doses should be. It's important that the dose be correct for the weight of your beardie, as it can make your beardie sick to get too much of a dose. As long as that's been done where you bought them, you'll be fine.
