I’d dose some Epsom salt, 1 tbsp per 5g. Take a look at the link below.

Ok well it looks like its hexamita. Does any one know any medications that can help. Any advice helps. I know Clear works but its not available now on Amazon.

If he is not eating you need to use CZ Clear as soon as possible.. Sometimes epsom salt injections can work but for severe infections CZ Clear is the only thing I have found that works. Just make sure you watch the CZ sponsored video on youtube to do the injection properly.
