Panacur treatment one dose or two?

Postby ShinAndDragon » Sat Feb 22, 2020 1:34 pm

I took my beardie to the vets for pinworms and she was given panacur. All in all the cost came to £108, they told us to go back in two weeks for another dose,
My local reptile centre said one dose would be enough and they the vets were conning us out of more money- should I take her back for another dose or would the one be enough?

Hello,

That is a good question!
Most of the time a couple of doses for deworming are needed. However it depends on the
levels that were found. If the fecal exam didn't reveal very high numbers then one treatment
might be enough to clear it up.
Do you know the levels or counts from the test?

Yeah, it was very high! We rescued her originally and sent a test off- we should have Had the results the next couple of days but they took weeks to come back, and when they did, the count was 8,400!
