:Link didn'twork, try this

::The following link is a fecal avi from a D.Auratus frog. I have seen about 1/2 dozen or so of these worms in there fecal matter. Is this something of concern ? The frogs look normal and are eating fine. I'm just wondering if I should have a fecal done by a Vet, could I just treat this with Panacur ? Any input would be greatly appreciate
AVI low resolution. Most "round worms"(Nematodes)are susceptible to Panacur/fenbendazole. I've seen many cases where low parasite load doesn't cause an immediate problem -BUT can become a disaster if left untreated. Bets way to ID is to look at parasite eggs/fecal flotation (very distinctive /characteristic)- many of the worms look very similar, even under a microscope.
Good Luck
