antiparasite drugs are ruff on chams because it takes time for the dead parasites to leave the system. I have never seen any of my reps get improved appetites while on any meds. I stimulate my reps appetites buy dusting 3 three week size crickets with pure unadulterate ascorbic acid (vitamin c). Unfortunatly very few people have access to USP grade vitamin C. Its what works for me. maybe it helps maybe they like the taste.
you might consider grinding up 1000mg vitamin C pills that will give a good safe dose per three cickets dusting even though it will contain the binding agents that hold pill together. the binding safe for consumption. I would say if you feed twice a day try it the morning then offer regulars at the second feeding. if you notice your cham has more pep great it worked for you. i only using when when a one of my retile goes more then three day without eating and show no intent on wanting to eat. i keep very accurate record of what they eat ,when then eat, and how much they eat.
