He ate a cricket today for the first time in weeks, I got him meal worms a week ago for the first time ever and he’s eaten 4-5 of them . Got him a hornworm he pays no mind to and he’s not at all interested in dubias. I give him a salad Avery day. The uvb Is about 14” from the log (I’ll have to double check, my daughter is sleeping right now) I’m looking online for another perch but haven’t been able to find anything . I can post a current pic tomorrow.

He weighed 67 grams when he was diagnosed with coccidia 3 weeks ago and today he weighed 66 grams. It’s been up and down over the past weeks but generally stable since I started syringe feeding

Hello,

Your poor little one, it sounds like he has been through the mill & still doesn't feel quite
right. Are you giving any type of probiotic right now, since he has been on Albon? This
particular medication is pretty harsh on their system so it does really affect their gut flora
which causes intestinal distress & poor digestion.
You can try getting some non dairy soy yogurt (flavored or unflavored) or some non dairy
acidophiluz either one to see if that helps out.
Be sure to keep him a little warmer overnight, around 80 or so, just to help with his immune
system.
I hope he gets to feeling better soon.

Hello,

Ok, great! I would continue to give the probiotics right now. On the youngsters, it will often
take several weeks sometimes before you start to see a change.
Is he eating anything on his own at all?
