Thank you, Earthworm. I may be contacting him soon. I've looked all over, even looked for bird dewormers that have levamisole. I may contact the local veterinary university tomorrow and see what comes of that but I'm wary because I hate to take both boys on a 25 minute car ride to the vet (one way). Also, I'm still recovering from a rather expensive cat vet bill. Sigh. I'm at my wits end. I can't tell if the boys won't eat a lot because they aren't hungry or they just hate the taste of the medication.

Thanks again for all your help. You're a peach. :)

would this work?

Quote:
Fenbendazole dewormer - suspension 10%
Broad-spectrum wormer effective against:
roundworms (98%) hookworms (99%) and taenia tapeworms (85%).
Same product as Panacur.
This bottle will treat 4-50# dogs for three consecutive days.
Dosage for dogs 1 cc per 5#s of weight, administer daily for 3 days.

No idea how you would give it to a fish though...

I found levisole but they want $52 for one packet of it

and a bird dewormer but its some other medication

*hugs* Thanks Tiki! I'll look into those because it's crazy hard finding levamisole products. You're so sweet to look those up for me. :)

Thank you Sena for the good wishes. It has been a fight and I'm proud of my boys for hanging on still.

omgoodness. That's nasty stuff. For a new betta owner = scary! Hope your babies all pull through.

Our vet went to school with my Mr, so they are pretty good friends. If you want me to call and see if I can get meds from her - let me know! I'll need to know what to ask for, exactly.

Thanks so much for the offer, Bunny. :) I think I finally tracked down some meds (thank you Tiki and Earthworm) but if I need more, I'll keep you in mind. How lucky to know a vet. With 8 cats, I sure wish I knew one. :)

well not THAT lucky. When I asked her if she'd see Fishelstein she looked at me like I was crazy. But, she knows my Mr and knows he would FLIP OUT if I made a big vet bill over "a fish". =(

She is pretty awesome though, drops off refills if I forget to make an appointment, etc. She is a super sweet lady with a BIG love for dogs. She owns pugs too, so I trust her with ours even that much more,, ya know?

Most vets do give you a funny look when you ask them to look at fish. I'm actually taking one of my cats in tomorrow and I plan to ask my vet if she'd ever consider helping me with meds for my fish if I need them. Even though she's super sweet and I love her, I can still picture her initial reaction. :)
