  • Mood:

potential resistent-parasite problem?

We may have ivermectin-resistent parasites now. Despite being dewormed last week, Arthur is still incredibly white where he should be pink, and lacking in energy. We've taken to hand-feeding him broccoli and spinach. Yesterday it got as bad as bottle jaw, so I dosed him with Valbazen last night. Crystal and Summer were scouring a few weeks ago, which was the tip-off that I needed to deworm. I did, and they cleared up, but yesterday they were scouring again. Madison hasn't started yet, but when I checked his eyelids yesterday he was very pale too.

I have a call in to the vet. I need professional help here.
