Why are you reducing what you are feeding? This is likely to cause them to have more problems.
Nic and the wildlife centre are both right – they need to be seen by a carer. If they do have internal parasites that need treating it can only be done on weight and needs repeat treating. If you are worried you won’t get your hogs back that is highly unlikely as most carers send them back where they came from. I am not at all sure how you can tell they have problems by looking at the poo though as normally it has to be done under a microscope.
I can tell you that just monitoring them isn’t helping them. Hogs with Fluke can be extremely active – until they die.
Please catch and take them to your wildlife centre
