    I would honestly try to avoid "stick-on" type heat mats. I had zoo-med heat mats until both of them failed on me and overheated. Had it not been for the thermostats, they would have cooked my poor...

    That is very true about the rapid changes; I never thought about it that way. I was just so worried about the yellow-y urate that I went into the very frenzy you described to correct...

    Hello, all. I think I spoke too soon. I noticed something odd today about Lore’s urate. The fecal part was fine: dark brown, well formed, no odor. Her urate was the normal size (about a third the...
