Alicewave, that is very interesting to read. My herp vet is somewhat underexperienced but I have had good service from them anyway and I keep bringing them herps to practice on. They're my only option in this small town. I have a rescued corn snake displaying symptoms of cypto (regurgitating on a semi-regular basis for a year, very skinny) and I have had 2 clean fecals for her. I have been saving up the $$ for a gastric lavage and they are estimating a price of $30 for the service, I was hoping they could ID crypto from that? Any further comments on the crypto test you were referring to?
<p>Panacur is also available at most seed&feed stores, sold in large tubes for horses. My doseage guides quote 50mg/kg. <a href="http://www.leaplizard.com/articles/dosage.html" target="_new">Here's a good article on doseage.</a></p>
