poor vets tell you treating for parasites is harmless, which is total BS. First off, why is there a dosage, if its harmless? Secondly, treating for parasites puts a high level of stress on the kidneys. So what if they are already damaged?????? How would that effect the dosage??????? Are you getting the point.
The result of damaged kidneys goes like this, the animal does better, starts feeding, starts putting on weight, the looking very healthy it falls over dead.

This healthy dead monitor syndrome is common with this type of situation. Just read forums and you WILL read, my poor so and so, was doing so well, then I came home today and it was dead.

Back to math, healthy monitors do not just die, they have to be killed

So when a vet tells you treating for parasites is harmless, hes saying, that treatment will not kill the monitor is a parasite related way. Yet a month later the animal falls over dead from kidney failure. Well, the treatment did not kill it, but the effect of DAMAGED kidneys did.

The key to this whole nine yards, extreme dehydration, causes kidney damage, with each and every event. The question is how much. So what is extreme? Its anytime you can notice the animal is dehydrated. Best wishes
