Baby flying-fox expels a worm: this is Blackadder

Jason , USA – This is not the web host/resell service you are looking for. – Customer service is horrendous. I have moved to a different provider. I still have support tickets that are over two months old that cs has responded to but not followed through with. The ticket system is flawed. I moved all of my domains from this provider. Due to ineptness by cs, I still can not log in to the main #Justhost site because my couple month password issue still hasn’t been resolved. Luckily, I can still access cpanel and WHM. Good luck if you are stuck with #Justhost.

The fun video for today is of Blackadder producing a worm (roundworm). I decided to worm him after this little appearance, in case straining to expel the worms was contributing to his hernia.

Worming wasn’t an experience he appreciated in any way or wishes to repeat. He spent a lot of time trying to get the taste out of his mouth.
I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t find this funny, but a secret part of me finds their dismay over the taste incredibly endearing. He was a little annoyed with me and wouldn’t take a bottle from me afterwards.
He expelled a few more worms and things have been fine since.

His hernia has also seemed to disappear. The vet says sometimes benign neglect is the best course of action over these things.

When the babies start to eat fruit it acts as a natural wormer and often they expel worms. It seems that only the younger babies get worms from their mums’ breast milk. The worm lifecycle goes through the adult’s liver. The adults don’t seem to get worms, just host third stage larvae in their liver.

    My cats can't stand the dewormer taste either. I used to have the chase my oldest one down once he saw the syringe! We don't deworm anymore because they are strictly indoor cats, so I'm sure they are grateful for that!

    ugh… fucking parasites… I wish all the worms (except earth worms) went extinct.
    At least little Blackadder got rid of it.

    I love how you care for the bats in every way and make sure all bases are covered in every aspect of their stay with you, it must be sad for you every time a baby bat you fell in love with takes that flight in to uncertainty but in no time at all you acquire new baby bat arrivals to fall in love with all over again
    bless you.

    parasites, yeah hmm… that's reality of life. Hope it won't cause people to unsubscribe… But I just wonder how often people think about them, when they receive kisses, from their pets. That's something to think about, cuse Her highness Princess Fifi is no different… Happy birthday to all born on 29 February !!! And to us all, a nice weekend:P

    Ok really dumb question that should probably be known. If these are like the worms in dogs. They do not bite so why not grab a pair of forceps and remove it (pull it out?).

    Poor little Black Adder, He was having a hard time choosing between you and the grapes until the deworming stuff hit his tongue. I bet he will feel a lot better after this is finished with. I have to agree with you that the reaction to the worm paste is both funny and endearing.That had to be the best whole body reaction to bad tasting medicine ever…he thought only glucose came out of those tubes…such betrayal! You do an amazing job with them all Meg.🖤🇨🇦

    Maybe that is also why he wasn’t growing well because the worms take all the goodness from the food.
