    I just found a worm in some poop. The worm is 3 1/2" long and about 1/16" in diameter with pointed ends and is white. Anyone know what this is?

    Roundworm. Ivermectin should treat. I've never used the wazine recommend by frostic so I can't say anything on effectiveness.

    Thanks I'll see what the local stores have on hand. The nearest TSC is 90 miles away.

    Any agriculture or large pet store should stock. Pretty common item. Good luck:thumbsup

    Thanks, should I spray anything on the Sweet PDZ under their roosts?
