Hi Chris,

If they are "normal intestinal worms" you wont see any worm, but you may see white or stringy poos & skinny bellies. Tape worms you don't usually see either.

It definately sounds like worms to me, sorry :perplex:

Just hope for your sake it is normal intestinal worms & not the dreaded "bum ones!" 8O (Cammalanus!!!! :hothead: )

As Frinkie said, check for any "hair like things" protruding out of vent.

& pray you don't see anything! :petrified:

My advice,

I would definately be worming them all now!.

Hope that helps,

Jaynee :flower:
