Oscar's appetite had diminished so I had a fecal exam done which came back positive for hookworms and coccidia. She has been treated for both and I will have another fecal done soon to make sure the parasites are gone.
Question #1: After almost 2 weeks, she still isn't eating. I force feed her some chicken babyfood mixed with good bacteria and occasionally, some calcium mixed in. I give her approx 2 droppers full per day or whatever she'll accept. I'm afraid she's going to starve. She looks completely healthy and hasn't lost any weight. She's still alert and active...What else can I do? Should I be worried?
Question #2: I'm thinking about changing her diet to exclude all worms and crickets to avoid the whole parasite issue. Would a diet of ZooMed BD food and greens be sufficient? Since she's not eating anyway, I figure now's as good a time as any to make the switch.
