    So last time I put in more food than they could get through in a week so I used a much smaller bowl this time with the deworming powder...but apparently I've gone the other way. I put it in early Wednesday, and by tonight (Fri night), it's almost all gone -- so barely even lasted half a week!

    Not sure what to do now, given that they've had a week's dose in half a week (though some are much keener on other things than the pellets so it might be only some that got that dose ha). When I fill their food bowl in the morning, do I simply refill the whole bowl with the original dosage (which would probably last the second half of the week), or no dewormer at all, or half the amount directed, or what?
