just been looking at various websites and majority of them say the most common symptoms with it are weight loss WITH scabs, excessive scratching and the little worms noticeable in their poops

have you given him anything different since the last bout? Have you tried feeding critical care?

Dr doesn't have any other symptoms except the weight loss. Yes, he is on the recovery food which I think is the same as critical care. I will have to sign off in a sec to get the next helping down him! Just trying to stay positive. He now weighs 550g which isn't good.
