pink in the urates?

Postby tempusfugit » Fri May 13, 2011 5:29 pm



So Bowser has been pooping less lately, and his latest had a pink spot in the urates, which I read could be a sign of parasites.. Is this the pink they are talking about, or am I being paranoid? He also isn't interested in eating today, at first I thought it was because he hadn't pooped yet, but now he has and still isn't interested.

Here's pictures:

These pictures aren't loading for me, but our beardie recently had a pinkish tint to his urates and it turned out to be parasites. If it's a really bright pink or light red, it could be a different issue. But if the normally white urantes have just a slight pink tinge like ours was, it's a possibility. Only a fecal exam will tell you for sure.
