Bearded Dragon Has Coccidia

Postby TheBeardedSaint » Sun Apr 07, 2019 12:21 am


We took our Beardie to the vet as a fecal test showed she had Coccida, the vet said there is no specific product in Australia used to treat Coccida for bearded dragons so instead they used one for pigs, it was a 5 day treatment, and he is still having diarrhea.

When she started getting the treatment, we put her in a tub and used a mixture of bleach and water onto her entire tank, we stripped the thing to the bone. It took 6 days before she pooped again, which was on the last day of the treatment, which we then scooped out.

Which meds were given? Ponazuril is a medication for horses that tends to work pretty well against Coccidia. Are you sanitizing everything well during treatment? With coccidia, you want to use steam, F10, or Ammonia to sanitize surfaces that come in contact with poop. Bleach is ineffective against it.
