    Hi everyone As the title explains, I'm pretty desperate for some advice about my girl. By way of a bit of background, she's an 8-ish y.o. merauke, a good weight and pretty active. I use a mix of fine sand and coconut fibre for her substrate, as she was forever getting wood shavings in her eyes...

    I brought my new crestie home on Tuesday from a small local pet shop. I found a regular, healthy-looking poop on Thursday morning but since then I've only really been finding urates around the cage. He's about 3-4 months old and his cgd bowl has been found empty in the morning for the past few...

    How often should the substrate be replaced in a tarantula's enclosure? Also what colour is tarantula poo? I was away for a few days and my B.Smithi's water bowl had gone dry, there was a white substrate which kinda reminded me of snake urates, was this tarantula excretion?

    Flew to London (I'm in Ireland) on Friday, went to see The World of Harry Potter, flew back yesterday and arrived home late. Anyway, it seems one of the boas must have weed soon after I left as it's gone rock solid and what's more a boa appears to have lain on it and squashed it flat and it's...

    Hi, Sorry it is me again looking for advice! Today Herbie has passed a large solid urate/stone. I have had him two and a half weeks and he is bathed at least once daily for 15-20mins and sometimes has a 10min second bath, he has been passing urine ok but his urates previously have looked a bit...

    So my 4 1/2-ish year old Sulcata wasn't eating for about a week and the vet wasn't helping, so I had a look at it myself and I discovered impacted urates blocking the cloaca. After digging through it, breaking it down and finally removing it yesterday, my tortoise was finally free to vacate a...

    I rescued what appeared to be a healthy 1 and a half year old male bearded dragon two months ago. His feces have pretty much been always soft. They haven't been runny liquid, nor sausage shape either. Sort of clumpy. In the past two weeks or so I've noticed some undigested meal worms in his...

    I just wondered how often a tortoise should pass urates? I rehomed a 2 year old horsfield on wednesday and shes passed urates twice is this ok? They look normal from what i have read and i know they are a waste product etc.... Just wondered how often they pass it?

    Hi folks, After some watching of my new crested gecko (she is 5/6 months old) I have noticed her poo has changed, there doesn't seem to be any black poo, but she still has the urate part and a lot of water come out. I have searched other threads and think that this just means she is well...

    Hi, Not the loveliest of subjects but ....my two hermanns usually pass all their poos and urates in their daily bath. However, in the last month I have noticed a change. Their urates are now clear most of the time, whereas before there would have been some white from time to time. Can anyone...

    Tonight I had Splat out and put him in a separate tub to feed him his crix. He produced a urate for me while he was in there. I had paper towels in the bottom and his urate had a lot of water in it and the small white bit. Poor l'il Splat had an expanding puddle around his feet! :blush: Is it...

    Hi everyone =) We've had a geryi uromastyx for a couple of months now, and everything's fine. He seems very happy, eating well, etc. But today we just found some white, chalky substance around in his viv. It looked like urates at first, but my experience with urates is when it's like the...
