We got a very nice jungle fattail a few months ago and last month or so found out it was INFESTED with Pinworms. I assume it was from the feeders, but who knows?
We medicated with .02cc Panacur (10% SafeGuard) 3 times in 7 day increments. There is absolutely NO sign of pinworm oocysts in this gecko now. He was around 50g when we started and is up to about 56g now. He's a very aggressive feeder and I guess will keep putting on weight for a while.
Now, anyone know where to get a female jungle fattail?
The point of my post is if you can medicate at lower doses and achieve a good result, it's better to do so than to risk having a bad effect on the animal. Even if it doesn't kill them, it can't be good to overdose them.
