Brumating with Pinworms?

Hey so Xion stopped eating two days ago and won't leave her cave, she sleeps through the day (though sometimes she opens her eyes and gives me the stink eye) and I'm worried she's brumating. She's only 9 months old and her tank is nice and warm, but most concerningly she's currently being treated for pinworms and I'm afraid she won't be able to fight it off in this state. Is there anything I can/should do? Is it ok to still give her medication when she's like this?

Update I think she might've just been depressed from her paper towel quarantine tank & that I haven't been interacting with her since I had a cold. She seems fine now, but I'll keep an eye on her.

Good to hear. Make sure you monitor her weight as well. The medicine for the worms should do its magic pretty fast.

Hello,

How long has she been on the deworming medication? Keep her well hydrated.
They do love attention so it's possible she may have been down because her environment was different, too. They get used to their home being a certain way.

Let us know how she is doing.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
