Beardie not Eating... Has Coccidia and Nematodes

Postby nickslizard » Tue Nov 18, 2008 10:11 pm


I took our beardie to the vet last Thursday after several days of poor appetite and lethargy. He found he has coccidia and nematodes. He gave us 2 antibiotics. We are a week into it and he still has no appetite. I have gotten him to eat a few small pieces of his salad and that's it. I have been pureeing veggies and fruit and dripping it on his nose and he licks a little of it, but not much. I offer crickets daily, but he won't eat even one. He is getting soooo skinny! I don't know what to do. How long shoudl the meds take to increase his appetite? He only spends a small part of the day under his heat light. I'm very worried about him.
