I heard back from the vet about my BP, Monty's, stool sample: He has cestodes (tapeworms)!! She wants me to bring him in on Monday. I'm assuming he got them from the live mice. I've been trying to get him converted to F/T, but with his other problems, I've had to compromise to get his weight up. Do any of you have experience with this? Are they easy to treat? I imagine he could continue to have this problem as long as he eats live or F/K mice. Do you keep de-worming meds at home? As soon as Talyn gives me one, I'll send her samples in for analysis as well. She's always eaten F/T Rats for me, but I know she was fed live and F/K before I got her. Is this just a coincidence with the mites or is there a connection?... just bad luck???
