Hi guys my five year old hermanns has got worms and quite bad!

I took him to the vet and they said give 0.15mls of Panacur every day for five days.... No joy then again for another 7 (finished this yesterday).... No joy again!

I'm keeping everything clean and changed (newspaper) and disinfected daily!

It just doesn't seem to be working :(
Any advice?

Thanks

Hello!

 

I may be able to help. Do you know exactly what kind of worms your tortoise has and, if possible, the amounts that they are present in? You may want to refer to the medical report...Thanks.
