    Default Slimey yellow urate


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    This is a pretty fresh dropping and there is a wet spot around it, i think she may have just shed cause yesterday she was about to go into shed but today looks good.

    Suppliments are repashy cal plus every 3rd feeding. Her normal foods are mealworms and crickets an she had crickets last tho last week she got to try dubias

    24x24 enclosure ambient mid 70s low 80s it varies warm side floor 92~94 humidity mid 50s low 60s again it varies

    She has a water dish which she uses plus a humid hide which she uses and is on the warm side she also uses her half log on warm side an cool side hide box

    This is the first weird poop ive seen like this out of any of my geckos

    I'm no poop expert. Can you still save it and bring it to an exotics vet? I know a good one in Portland. If not, and the next feces looks the same, bring it to a vet.

    Use an alcohol-based sanitizer like Purell between caring and feeding each gecko. Handle and feed this gecko last until you get this figured out. Just for caution be the only one to handle your leos.

    1. Has your source of feeders changed?
    2. Are you gutloading your feeders all the same?

    A well-hydrated leo excretes 3 things: feces, urates, and urine. The urine is the wet area you see.

    Make sure you're ON schedule with Repashy's: lightly dust prey at every other feeding.

    I did just start using carrots to gut load and my wife already tossed the poo. we been going through rainbowmealworms.

    We always use hand sanitizer when handling and this girl is a lil shy so she dont get handled as much but we will hold off on her for now atleast.

    Bleh just want i need right now..

    It was just the mucus that was that color, not the urate correct?

    It looks like its only the mucus. She should be okay if the next one looks normal.

    That feces looks much better than the other one. Even though the urate is missing, there's no slime.
