Hi, so I noticed a little while ago that their stool was a weird color. I went to the vet and got it checked, it seems to be from tapeworm eggs. The vet got some doses of medication for 3 days which I did give my 2 gliders. I have been cleaning their cage every 2 days and changing their water everyday. The one that had the weird colored stool is now up in the day grooming a lot, she doesnt want to stay in the pouch or go to bed and she drink more water than usual. Other than that she is still playful, spends time in the wheel and eat. The vet told me to give them the meds and come back in around 2 weeks, should I go earlier since her behavior has changed? The meds might have not been good enough for tapeworm so my vet might have to order some just for them but again if its not working shouldnt I want to know whithin/earlier than 2 weeks after their last app. ?

Your vet told you two weeks because of the life cycle of the tapeworm.

Just be patient.

I hope you don't have to go through too many rounds of meds.
