I would be taking a fecal sample in to the vet. Make sure they include coccidia.

Safeguard doesn't take care of much. Basically only tapeworm and roundworm.

When they are very bad is when they are light.

Just this summer I had fecals done. All my girls had nice dark pink eyelids. One of my girls had a bad enough barberpole load that my vet felt I needed to treat. This surprised me since most of us go with eyelid color and assume if the eyelids are dark, wormload is light. Well, that is only true to a point. But catching it early meant that it only took one deworming. Next fecal was clean.

So my lesson this summer was learning that by the time you have pale or white eyelids, you have had a worm problem for much longer than you thought.

So I would take your drop in milk as a good possible sign of worms.
