Prazipro not working -- Jungle Parasite clear is no longer being stocked

I've done two treatments back-to-back of Prazi pro and there's been no change in my betta. Symptoms were and still are clear, stringy poop hanging out of her. Can someone help me find a link somewhere to order Jungle Parasite clear or suggest something else?? Thanks.

EDIT: Parasite Clear cannot even be ordered via Walmart and so far I don't even see it on ebay anywhere.

I found this? Is this the item?

Amazon seems to have 2 left. I have never used the product but it's what I could find using the name you posted.

Is there a specific ingredient in the medication you need that is in the Jungle product to treat the parasites you have specifically?

I can maybe help you search for one with it included in the ingredient list?

try unscented epsom salt. You can buy it most anywhere. I would start with a 2tsp per gallon treatment. It should help kill them off and pass them through. Try that for at least 7 days and then see if we still have a problem.

If the epsom salt treatment fails, you can also treat with pure Metronidazole powder. Seachem sells it, and it's easy to find on eBay. Just mix the powder and some tank water in a bottle cap, let a pellet sit in the mixture for 20 minutes, and feed to your betta for 14 days. I have a container on hand in case my betta ever comes down with internal parasites.

If that fails as well, you can try to get your hands on levamisole, which is a livestock de-wormer. I see levamisole fish flakes also on eBay, but let's not worry about that yet.

Here's a link to the metronidazole product on eBay:
