How does my fecal look?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hey everyone, so Jerome, my 5.5 month old beardie is only a foot long. About 3 weeks ago he was only 9 inches, then I switched him to Phoniex worms and he's grown 3 inches in that time which is great! But to be on the safe side, I decided to do the DIY Fecal Float. As far as Cocoida, I can't tell if there are any but there is definitely a worm looking shape in one of these slides. This is my first fecal, and 3 days ago I gave him a dose of Fenbendazole and a dose of Liquid Toltrazuril Coccidiocide 5%. It's hard for me to catch fresh fecal since I'm out a lot but this morning he finally let one out so I tested it. How does it look? I don't think it's normal. Sorry for photo quality, was hard to get the camera on the microscope.

It's not really clear in these pics. What magnification are you using?

This is coccidia @ 400x.

Not too difficult if you have access to a descent microscope. There are kits you can buy online. Most common parasites are pretty easy to identify.

how much do kits cost? How much do fecal test cost to get done by a vet or sent into a site?

Not sure about kit prices, but my fecal cost $52 through my vet.
