Weight loss

Postby beardymom » Wed Jun 09, 2021 1:25 pm

Hey guys,
I have a 6 year old beardie named Steve and he has been healthy as can be up until about a week or so ago. He dropped a lot of weight and I chalked it up to moving his enclosure to a different part of the house but his weight loss. He is active and eating like no tomorrow. Only other thing is looser stools and more stools more often then normal. I’m thinking it’s coccidia. Is there over the counter meds to treat that?

You need to take a fecal in to have it tested before giving any med at all --- you want to know exactly whats causing the weight loss - call a reptile vet heres a website for find one www.arav.org
ask about dropping a fecal off for testing for parasites / worms - and then go from there
