Coccidia

Postby Eindrdi » Wed Nov 18, 2020 7:54 pm

Poor scute has coccidia, no doubt due to the stress of her recent move from the pet store to my house. all her perameters are good, reptisun 10.0 tube light, 40 gallon tank, fresh water, spot cleaning daily, and very enriched environment. She is also on a diet of crickets, phoenix worms, mealworms, pea shutes, mizano, apple, kale, and the occasional squash or melon. i gut load and dust her food with multivitamin AND calcium with D3. upon figuring out she has coccidia im planning to do an entire overhaul and deep clean of her entire tank, new reptile mat, all her old sticks will be thrown out and replaced, and all her non disposable decor will be cleaned thrice over tomorrow. my only concern is, i have her in a hospital tank temporarily with the same temperature gradient as her old one, 105°F basking spot, 90 around basking spot, and 80-85 on cooler end. with shade in the hide at about 78. im wondering if the stress of being in there will make it worse, and if I should simply keep her in her 40gal after i clean it.

Hello,

She is a little cutie! Was she doing well with being in her 40 gallon previously? If so, then
she would probably do better in her original tank to decrease stress. Just make sure that
her temperatures are optimal so she can get better.
Is she eating pretty well right now?

Thanks tracie, yes shes started picking up her eating after i cleaned up her tank and changed the scenery, her color is coming back to a nice ruby red coloration. The Sulfa she's on is making her a little tired, so shes spending quite a bit of time sleeping in her hammock and in the basking area. but shes starting to perk up![Click image to enlarge]

Hello,

Very cute indeed! Be sure to keep her very well hydrated, while she is on the Albon, as
it is very dehydrating & harsh. Do you also have a probiotic too for help with her tummy
while she is on the meds?
I'm glad to hear her colors are looking nice also! Keep us posted on her progress.

I do not have a probiotic, but I can speak to my vet about that. I heard about the dehydration so i've been misting her a little and increasing the frequency of her baths. Her poop is still quite runny, but the amount of blood in it is decreasing.

Hello,

How is your girl doing today?
You can look in the store or health food store, for a non dairy, organic soy yogurt, or a non dairy
acidophiliz to help out with balancing out the normal flora in the tummy.

How is she doing today?
Keep us posted on her.
