Did you get a fecal done just to see if it was parasites? You really should never administer meds when you donít need. They can dehydrate and possibly stress out the animal. Anyway have you tried other baby foods besides just peach and banana? Try other nectar fruits such as pear, mango, guava and papaya. Our aurics totally devour them. You can add a little bee pollen also to try and stimulate him to eat. Donít even bother with the crix very few will take them. Just add meat baby food in a ratio of 1:2 (meat to fruit) otherwise he wonít get enough protein to grow properly. Hopefully he will take these other fruits more readily. Good luck.
