Spirurid Worm Infection in Reptiles

Treatment

 

Once diagnosed, the treatment of Spirurid worm is usually environmental in nature. You need to increase the reptile's habitat temperature to between 95 degrees Fahrenheit and 98 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees to 37 degrees Celsius) for one or two days. It is important to note: reptiles of colder climate may suffer from heat-related problems due to an increase in their environmental temperature.
