I have not used it with reptiles, but I have used Ponazuril with dart frogs to treat for coccidia; the frogs did not die and they tested negative on the next fecal for the coccidia. I know this doesn't help much, but there may not be anyone anywhere who has used the drug to treat a chelonian, I would be interested to hear of anyone as well. Entamoeba is generally considered commesal (basically part of the normal gut flora) in chelonians but has caused death in some tortoise species,it extreamly deadly to lizards and snakes. Be very careful if you have other reptiles. I think you were probably very lucky or have an exellent vet, alot of entamoeba cases are diagnosed in necropsy. It can spread to and effect all organs. One thing that I am trying now with some animals who have had heavy anti-microbial tretments is probiotics, it may help your guy bounce back (or may not), it may be worth looking into as well.
