    Ok, Dr. Alan, this is the email the vet just sent me. Let me know if you'd like me to ask him anything else. Thanks so much...let me know what you think.

    I researched the record regarding your Geckos visit to all creatures
    and I
    was pretty certain that the species I recognized were Stronglye's. They
    were
    of a variety I did not recognize - but could have been a hookworm or
    ascarid - I am not sure. They were not Pinworms or entoemeba invadens -
    that
    I am certain of.

    Hope this helps - Dr dan Meakin

    I can't find any reports of Strongyles in reptiles, but anything is possible and many of the parasites have not been clearly identified taxonomically. If the ova resembled hookworms that is a possibility, although I haven't seen that one. If this gecko was ever housed with others in your collection, send me some stool from them (the others). Sometimes you just end up treating with panacur if there are "unidentifiable" ova present.
