    Default Medication...deworming

    I noticed a few threads around here that talk about medicating their toads/frogs. My question is to do with deworming...what would you use to medicate a Cane toad? I was just under the impression that amphiphians in general were sensitive to them.

    The drugs that are used to deworm reptiles and amphibians can actually be over dosed a little, because it takes large concentrations to be harmful to herps, amphibians included. They are very safe for frog, not so much for protazoa and worms.
    But like all drugs, they should be administered by a vet or by a herpeculturist/herpetologist with some experience using these drugs.
