    Default Chubbz is sick

    Last month I fed Chubbz his first rodent.
    It was a live mouse from the local pet store.
    He ate it very eagerly.
    Since then he hasn't been very interested in anything else.
    At first I thought he grew a preferrence for mice since he ate one.
    But I recently fed him another one and he didn't take it nearly as eagerly as the first one.
    Last night I noticed little worm like things in his water dish.
    I looked closer and they were worms all right.
    Chubbz may have gotten them from the mouse he ate.
    They look like pinworms to me, from what I've seen on google.
    I have no pictures of them and I regret that I didn't take any.
    I'll try to get some next time I see them.
    What should I do?
    I can't afford to take him to the vet right now.
    Is they're any medication I should get for him?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes that's a possibility with live mice - they can pass on parasites, though I think you're unlucky to have found someone breeding mice that have internal parasites. As for treating him, have a look at the end of the Gray Tree Frog article. It has details of what drugs and what dosages. You will need to take him to a vet to get it done though, that's the downside.

    I have some news about CHubbz.
    He pooped again and so I checked to see if I saw those worm looking things again.
    I did but unlike last time I took a good look at them.
    They appeared to me to be remnants of mice bones.
    I took a picture but my camera is so bad they you won't be able to see them.

    Can those bones cause damage to the intestine tract.
