Spitting out greens

Postby kjworley19 » Fri Oct 30, 2020 3:37 pm

Oliver is very good about eating his salad but for the past two days he has been chewing up and spitting out his collard greens. I am going to get him a new batch tomorrow and I am hoping it is a one time thing but has anyone else had this problem? He has been sick for the past few weeks but he has been eating just fine until now.

He has had pinworms but he's been taking medicine. He took his last dose a few days ago but his diarrhea hasn't let up and I think I saw blood in his urate this morning. I am calling the vet tomorrow.

Hello,

How is your dragon doing?
So he is on Panacur 10% paste or liquid solution? Usually this medication is well tolerated
with them unless he is being given too much. I noticed the dose was .6ml, is that right?
What is your dragon's weight & I can double check the dose if you need?
If he is spitting his greens out then, he either doesn't like the taste or something is bothering
his tummy. You could try giving some probiotics to see if that helps settle his system down.

He is still pretty much the same with really bad diarrhea, but other than that he seems fine.
The medicine is liquid and it is 3 doses of .2 mL each. He took the last dose on Monday. I don't have a way to check his weight because I am at college and don't have anything to weigh him with but he is about 15-16 inches long. The greens are the only thing he isn't eating, he still eats his roaches and squash so it's probably something about the taste that he doesn't like.
