I recently brought a stool sample to my vet and everything checked out ok. Yesterday I was feeding my turtle and noticed a long white thing coming out of his vent. I looked it up on line and it looks to be like a tape worm. I collected the worm and put it in a jar of water and froze it. I am going to the vet next Monday, I had to wait until the herp vet had an available spot. Is there a better way to preserve the worms, if any more come out? Is there anyway I could get my turtle to poop Monday morning, so I now the stool sample is fresh? I'm sure the vet will give me a run down on the deworming process, but how long should it take? From what I have read, I'm gonna have to clean the enclosure completely every time he poops. So I'm gonna set up a small tub until he is worm free, just wondering how long my buddy will be without his big tank. Should I discard all feeder fish that are in the tank, or is there some way to deworm them as well?
