One thing many people overlook, and what I think FR may be alluding to is a lot of problems can be prevented with access to a proper basking range, allowing the animal to metabolize properly.

Without access to heat and humidity, the animals internal well being deteriorates and weakens.

Rather than worrying about panacur, giving the animal access to a hot basking spot will strengthen the animals immunities, and in time the adult parasites (if they even exist at all) will die off and without reintroduction via infected food, the animal's parasite count will diminish.
