If he is doing well without worming him then don't do it.
Routinely worming animals can do more harm than good.

I hace decided to worm him as he stopped putting on weight and had developed a cough. After 5 days of panacure his weight had gone up to 511g, still got a little cough.

He as still got a little cough and is a little weezy when breathing but is still a lovely hog to have around, only one other problem I had with him, well not so much with him but with the rest of the house hold was the smell when his box was opened to clean him out, the smell had them running for their bedrooms. But now have changed his food for dried food and the smell as gone, just got to find another way to get kids to bed. And is weight is now 590g.

Sorry to hear he still has his cough, but he is gaining weight which is good!

Tell the children if they don't go to bed properly you will put him back on the food that makes him stinky!! Laughing
