    Spy is eating she was just getting ready to shed a bit earlier than normal. Their urinates are white some still have a bit of yellow at the bottom but it's not as bad as it was.
    This is the dusting schedule I'm on :

    Monday - calci-dust
    Wednesday - nutrobal and calcium
    Friday- just nutrobal

    They did have worms but the vet didn't tell me what medicine was given

    I understand. Did your vet recommended this schedule?

    Nutrobal is excellent! I think it may be the best multivitamin available! BUT using it and calci-dust at 3 feedings per week in all is too much. Too much calcium coats the digestive tract and impairs the absorption of key vitamins and other nutrients. It's like giving more, yet benefiting less.

    I suggest using those supplements like this:
    Monday - just nutrobal
    Thursday or Friday - just calci-dust

    /\ that way Nutrobal (with its fat soluble D3) begins the week. The D3 sticks around in a gecko's system. When Thursday or Friday rolls around, there is already D3 inside the gecko to help absorb the calci-dust.

    There is NO need to lightly dust with Nutrobal or Calci-Dust each at 2 feedings per week. Doing so could be harmful.

    You're welcome. I hope all urates return to pure white!

    Your vet might reply to emails about Dino's and Spy's feces especially since your questions are related to their past treatments.

    Stay in touch. You know where to find us.

    i have no idea whats going on. dino is going to the toilet normally everything is digested, white urinate, not too big or too small. However, spyro has like discharge/mucous (idk what it is) in her faeces like over it and her urinate is still yellow. I do the same with both of them so i dont understand why one has returned back to normal and one hasnt?

    I know your funds might be limited.

    Your vet is the go-to person for faeces questions. The BIG question is whether or not this is contagious.

    apparently it is either
    too much vitamins
    dehydrated
    water infection

    i think it might be the dehydration because dino is back to normal. i never see spyro drinking however, i see Dino drink all the time. i know it sounds stupid... but how can i get spy to drink? i give her baths but she doesnt lick the water around her..

    SO UPDATE
    they both seem to be back white so, who knows what it could be and i'm still keeping an eye on spyro to make sure that mucus/discharge doesn't come back. i still have no idea what caused it.


    I know it may sound silly, but i cant keep the 'cool' side of my vivarium cool, the hot side really goes up n down in temperature in the day and rages from 30-34C ( i have seen it go up to 36 but that was when england had the really hot weather) however the cold side is always like 1*C colder or the same temperature however, i feel like tiles and they are cool and i make sure the water hasn't gone warm and it never does

    The cool end of Spyro's and Dino's enclosure will be just about the same temperature as the room where the enclosure sits.

    How long is their enclosure? Cms are fine.

    How about adding a 3rd hide: a warm dry hide? So then you'd have a
    • warm MOIST hide
    • warm DRY hide
    • cool DRY hide
