    Please let me know if I should start a new thread..

    I'm doing the 10 day re-worming with Valbazen. Since doing it 10 days ago I saw where it was recommended to withhold their food the day before. So, I withheld their food since about noon yesterday and gave them a piece of valbazen soaked bread (.5cc) each at 10am.

    Question is, when should I give them their food back? They're getting pretty irate.. ;)

    I wouldn't hold the food more than a day or you risk inducing a molt.. I think once you've dosed them, they can have their food back. In a few days, you might consider some sort of yogurt treat to help rebuild the good bacteria in their guts.
