I was just wondering if any of the keepers of larger collections of Hognose(or other species) deworm their animals as "protocol" for any new addition. Also if so, why and with or without a vet visit? Thanks for the input.

I only do it if I see a runny fowl smelling stool while they are in quarentine. I also start them out on paper towel to keep a better eye on them as well.

What do you use and what are the cons if it wasn't needed?

I use panacur and the only real ill effect is that it didn't need it. It can also be used as a appetite increaser. Metranidazole would kill them if you gave too much on accident which is very easy but it's mainly used for flagylletes.
