Hi Everyone!

Drogon had an accident in his food dish. When I cleaned everything out, I noticed this in his dish!!! Is this a worm??? Is it even possible for them to get this big?? It wasn't moving. Also, Drogon has been acting perfectly fine, very energetic and eating so I have no idea what is going on!

By the way, the green liquid is disinfectant dish soap.

Could be a noodle.
Did you clean out the bath before?

Is it moving.?
Hi, it's definetly not a noodle. I only feed him buggos and veg. And my bath was clean, he pooped in the dish.

No it wasn't moving at all!

I wouldn't be too concerned.
As long as he's eating drinking & everything.
Unless a mod can prove here that's a parasite or worm...

It still kinda looks like a noodle

The best way to know is collect a sample next time he poops anf take it to the vet for a fecal test.

Thanks for replying. Do you know if parasites can be visible in their stool or are they only microscopic?

Microscopic.
Invisible
If he had parasites he would be lethargic & not eating well.
His poo would stink

I've never seen or heard of a parasite you can see with your naked eye.

They can be visible, pinworms look like small pieces of thread, you can Google pinworm pictures. Speaking of thread, might Drogon have picked up a piece of thread somewhere on the floor or from your clothes ? Otherwise there's a possibility it's a pinworm.

I;ll keep an eye on his stool since it's almost time for his next visit. I'll also order some probiotic for him. You know, it makes sense if he did accidently eat a string since I sew a lot in the living room xD

Do you think it's as thin as your thread ? BTW , I can understand why Skittles thought it might be a noodle because it really looks exactly like a little on. :)
