Orange poop?

Postby Gingerofthenight » Fri Apr 02, 2021 7:50 am

My beardie mochi just pooped and I noticed it was kind of orange. I fed her some yams yesterday I don't think she ate very many and I think it might just be that but I want to ask for a second opinion anyway to make sure it's not blood. She seems normal other than this
Here's a picture of it (ew)

Could be the yams -- are you feeding calcium and how much? That usually effects the urate giving a orange tinge to it as well

I dust some of her crickets with calcium every time I feed her crickets which is like may be 3 times a week

So I am thinking its the yams --- watch the poop for the next few days and see if it changes - if it still persist w/ NOT feeding the yams then it maybe the calcium but I am leaning more towards the yams

Hello,

Discoloration of urates is a very common occurrence. It is most likely due to the yams, but
taking them out of his diet for a short while will determine that.
Oversupplementation can sometimes cause the orange tint of urates, too. Which vitamins do
you use?
