    Default 2 female Leopard geckos, both under 1yr old have yellow in urinate.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Both females do live together, and get on perfectly.
    They have both recently been treated for impaction and worms. ( Both are ok now), however i have noticed they both are passing yellow in their urinates, i was wondering if anyone could tell me a possible reason? and solutions to get it back to fully white again

    Thanks x18553784_10209644439132044_2058559350_o.jpg

    Hey, could you please tell us how you suppliment, your tank size, feeder insects (And their diet), tank size, heat, etc?

    It is likely due to over supplimentation, Elizabeth Freer has some suppliment schedules you can find in the care sheets.

    A warm welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    Please share the info PoppyDear requested including the exact name and types of supplements.

    Are you doing anything differently now than before when their urates were pure white?

    • What medicine(s) were they treated with for worms?
    • What caused their impactions?
    • What are their ground temps on the warm end and the cool end?

    i searched up and i haven't been giving them the right calcium, I've been using the one with multi-vitamins ( nutrobal). i will go out tomorrow and buy pure calcium (calci-dust).

    Their tank is 20 gallon. housed on tile since the impaction incident. Dino for some reason wont eat ANYTHING other than crickets whilst Spyro eats crickets but every two weeks i do give her 2 waxworms to give her a change in food.
    What caused the impaction
    i housed them on something called 'LEO LIFE' i got told by a person who specialises in reptiles that they would be fine, however they ate it they were treated with a medicine called Lactulose.
    Temp
    ground temperature on hot-mid is 30*c( 90*F) cold side is 23*c (83*F)


    Unfortunately the vet didn't tell me what wormer she gave them

    Nutrobal is a fantastic source of calcium!!! It has much more calcium than any other supplement I know of: 46:1 calcium : phosphorus!

    Lightly dust the bugs and worms with Nutrobal at only 1 feeding per week. Then, maybe, dust with a plain calcium carbonate a second time per week.

    • Nutrobal contains vitamin D3 at 150,000 IU/kg.

    oh thank god i'm doing it right with the vitamin one haha. do you think i should ask my vet if it should be something to be concerned about? I've been told it could be bacteria and i wouldn't want them to get an infection or anything.

    Please post a picture of these feces. That's the only way we might be able to help.

    How often have you been dusting with Nutrobal?

    "Nutrobal" ***Highly RECOMMENDED***

    "Nutrobal (multivitamins) has been the top selling calcium balancer supplement in Europe for years. Peter formulated it 25 years ago (1992)."

    Click: Nutrobal for reptiles

    Contents per gram:
    Calcium 200 mg & Vitamin D3 150 IU/gram (This = 150,000 IU/kg of vitamin D3.)
    Vitamins A, C, E, K, B1, B2, B6, B12 folic, nicotinic and pantothenic acids, biotin choline niacin and minerals P, Na, Fe, Co, I, Mn, Zn, Se, Cu."

    Calcium/Phosphorus ratio of 46:1

    "ProRep Calci Dust"
    Click: ProRep: Calci Dust

    pure calcium carbonate
    "ProRep Calci Dust is a supplement for reptiles and amphibians. It is made from 100% natural calcium carbonate with no additives and is an excellent way to provide essential calcium and avoid deficiency diseases. It's micro-fine particle size ensures excellent adhesion to both live insects and plant material.

    Directions: Calcium forms an essential part of the diet of all reptiles and amphibians. Many foods that are used to feed them in captivity are low in this essential mineral or may have high levels of Phosphorus, which can inhibit the uptake of calcium.

    To supplement vegetable matter for tortoises and other herbivorous reptiles simply sprinkle over food immediately before feeding. To supplement insects then place a small amount in a plastic bag with the insects and shake gently. They should then be fed immediately while the Calci Dust is still stuck to the insects.

    To aid feeding the insects can be cooled before applying the Calci Dust. This will make them slower and ensure that they are quickly eaten.

    It is not possible to overdose using Calci Dust and it can be used to supplement at every feed. However, as some animals find large quantities of it unpalatable avoid smothering the food. Because this product is 100% calcium carbonate, large quantities are not required to provide adequate calcium levels.

    If acceptance is a problem then start with very low levels of supplementation and gradually increase it until your animals are used to the taste.

    Most reptiles and amphibians can only absorb calcium from their food in the presence of vitamin D3. It is essential that adequate UVB light of the correct wavelength and intensity is provided to enable D3 synthesis by the animal or that oral D3 is supplied. It is recommended that a vitamin/mineral supplement is also used in conjunction with Calci Dust. Contents: Calcium carbonate."

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    PS:
    Here's how Nutrobal compares with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 (as far as the D3 goes):

    Nutrobal contains vitamin D3 at 150,000 IU/kg.

    Vitamins A, D, E, & K are fat soluble. That means they stick around in a gecko's (our) systems and are not flushed out when the gecko pees like water soluble vitamins (vitamin C and the B vitamins) are.

    Zoo Med Repti Calcium with vitamin D3---phosphorus-free ***Highly RECOMMENDED***
    • 38%-43% precipitated calcium carbonate
    • Vitamin D3: 10,390 IU/kg (that's 22,907 IU/pound)


    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    So for leopard geckos 12 mo and younger
    • Lightly dust with Nutrobal at 1 feeding per week.
    • Lightly dust with ProRep's Calci Dust at a separate feeding per week.
    • Evenly space the supplements.
