P.S. those were definitely not parasite eggs Reply Arizona Vivariums says: November 11, 2019 at 10:05 pm Vets with decades of schooling and experience: Am I a joke to you?

I’m glad that so many can decide that they know more than others, while also being rude to assert their dominance and show just how good they are inside. Reply Albert Constantine says: November 11, 2019 at 11:15 pm Will 4,294 pounds of my anaconda's fecal matter be enough for you to test, if I officially sign ownership over to you for the period of time you work with the crap? I mean fecal. I knew I was saving it for a reason.

Reply silver scape says: November 12, 2019 at 2:15 am I think you did Ethan wrong by taking over Emerald scales and making him start his own business. He was there when Emerald scales was unheard of and because of your YouTube channel your guys business gained a lot of attention and just because you got a gf you felt the need to part ways. Now he has to start all over with a business that no one knows about. He was the one going with you to pick up animals and do all the stuff with you that your gf does now back when you had no subs and no one knew about your business. Then when yours and Ethan's business gets notoriety from YouTube vids (which he was in a lot of them with you) you desert him and make him have to start all over while you reap all the benefits which is foul to do that to your friend that was a good friend that would of done anything for you. Friends like that are hard to find. I wish I had a friend like Ethan. You did him wrong bro and for that I'll be unsubbing and disliking every video you make. Ethan deserves to be the other half of Emerald scales. Not the fat slob of a gf you have today. Reply kingy krngy says: November 12, 2019 at 2:34 am Can i know your sr ?

Reply Hector Luna says: November 12, 2019 at 9:56 am I was a vet. Tech for about 6 years you need help dude it's a tricky to spot eggs I can give you some pointers. Reply Nikki L. McLaughlin says: November 12, 2019 at 10:04 am Your wry sense of humor cracks me up! I had to do a double take with you taking that shot of fecal…then saw the red, lol. So was it juice? A great reference to identify eggs and parasites is Klingenberg's "Understanding Reptile Parasites." I did my own fecals a couple months ago, with nearly the same tools and supplies you used, and the book helped me differentiate between coccidia ova and Trichomonas. It has pictures for hookworm, roundworm, and pinworm ova as well as other parasites commonly found in reptiles and herps. Google is a shot in the dark for newbies until they become more familiar with the different kinds of parasites that are found in reptiles.

Reply Sabryn Phillips says: November 12, 2019 at 7:23 pm The content on this channel just keeps getting better and better? Reply Saturn Venice says: November 12, 2019 at 8:01 pm Um so you get "certified" by one of the most abusive reptile keepers I think that's one of the most irresponsible things ever who even taught you and also become a certified exotic vet you actually have to become a certified vet then apply to become a certified exotic vet Reply Out of The Hat says: November 12, 2019 at 8:01 pm Alex is a vet in mirrorworld, but in this reality where he clearly isn't we all know that means he's getting 10,000 DMs from people who want him to fix their pet, won't go to an actual vet, and will keep waiting for a response weeks after they DMd because they refuse to get their pet actual medical care when harassing a youtuber is way less effective.

So the non-vet figured out the problem, not the real vet. Sometimes do it yourself is better than the vet because the owner cares more and will work harder to figure it out. Vets won't always spend the extra time it takes, they are charging you to spend 15 minutes looking at your animal- if they can't figure it out they go on to the next client.

Reply Kacee Larson says: November 13, 2019 at 12:55 am My bearded dragon is in brumation and, as most things I research about reptiles, everybody recommends something different.

Im afraid it isnt hot enough, yet i bought the one that says up to 20 gallons, and mine is around 15. I have a strip thermometer on the side of the tank and it is reading 79 degrees currently, and I know it is supposed to be around 86-93. im honestly terrified that my gecko isnt happy with it or that something is wrong.

Reply SinriWoah LIVE! says: November 13, 2019 at 9:48 am HELLO GO HURPING,my gf and i live in the U.S. and we have a GORGEOUS, completely healthy year and a half- 2 year old female Eastern Rat Snake named Little Bit that i am no longer able to keep. i have been looking for a new home for her since before summer with no luck (ppl dont want Rat Snakes, *pfft*) but was REALLY REALLY hoping that you would be willing to take her as i absolutely no matter what refuse to give her to animal control or release her in the wild just out of fear for her safety, and my own conscious wont allow me to but still i am slowly running out of people to ask and dont know what to do… i really hope that you have some available space and that this would be possible… she is absolutely stunning in her patterns(whites with pinkish/peach/orange markings, and every shade of blacks,browns, and grays mixed in for good measure)… she is just a little bit of a biter not to a point in the habit that she cant be talked out of it with just a little attention im sure, but the biting its mainly in her encloser as Eastern rat Snakes are a bit territorial of their home's.. but overall she is a very good girl and totally healthy, at her appropriate weight, and a very willing and excited eater …. so yeah my gf and i would be SOOOO grateful if you would be able to help us out also i forgot to mention we are big fans and absolutely love your videos, anyways thank you for your time and i hope to hear back from you soon….

Reply Elizabeth King says: November 13, 2019 at 4:02 pm “I can’t do blood work… right now” Reply Elizabeth King says: November 13, 2019 at 4:06 pm If you ask one of the vet techs in your area to give you a run down of how to do fecals they would likely help. There are some other tricks they could show you too to become proficient at looking for parasites and they can help you identify what is a parasite and what is not a parasite based on its characteristics. It’s a cool skill and I bet they would love to help you out.
