Runny poop after panacur

Postby rango101 » Sun Jun 20, 2021 4:55 am

My 9 mo old beardie had pinworms and was treated with panacur. He's still having diarrhea two weeks later, is this just do to the panacur still? Should I give it more time before rechecking a fecal?

He mostly eats dubias, I try to get him to eat bsfl but he doesnt like them. He eats some of his salad which is collard greens, escarole and butternut squash.

The vet should of wanted another fecal after med stopped - I would take another one in just to make sure the parasites are gone- when Blaze had coccidia they had him on Panacur and Albon - -- I suppose its possible that the med could still be working on him but Blazes fecal were never runny - in fact I was shocked he had them at all as he was showing no signs of them at - but it wouldnt hurt to have another fecal done -- if they are gone and hes still having the runny diarrhea then its possible something else could be going on ---- has he always had runny poop or was it formed before the parasites?

No it's weird he had pretty well formed poop prior to the panacur but since having the panacur its just very runny. Although his poop looks more well digested than it did before he used to have undigested bugs in it. The vet said if he was feeling better he didn't need another fecal but I suppose I could submit another.

You can wait it out too and see what his poop does -- are the insects now digested - the basking temps are being taken w/ a digital probe thermometer or a stick on?

yeah the insects are better digested now, I use the probe on my herpstat dimmer to take the temp.

Ok well its up to you -- you can wait it out and see if they straighten out or call the vet and ask if the poop should still be runny and ask what you should do
