Constant orange urate. Not white once.

I'm concerned about my bearded dragon. He had 4+ Coccidia when we got him. We treated it and it went away first try. Somewhere along the line he got pinworms which we are treating now. My concern is that his urates have been orange since we got him they have not once been white. They seem darker when he occasionally eats mealworms but we only give thise when waiting for his soldier fly larva or dubias. He seems healthy and is growing rapidly but the orange urate is a constant. He is on his second round of Pancour for the pinworms and I know they can cause this but it hasn't let up at all even when the Coccidia was gone. Should I just wait until his 3rd round of Pancour is done or is this urgent? We lost our last beardie to juvenile gout and I'm afraid of something happening to him too. Hes 5 months old and 199g I will include some pictures of him here and his bm from today. Thank you. Temps and husbandry are on point but I'm willing to answer any questions. I've touched on this with Tracie as well and she says it seems odd.

What are you feeding for supplements and how often?

I haven't given any supplements besides Calcium without D3. I was 5 days a week but I cut back because he's been eating a lot of bsfl. He gets 2 or 3 types of greens, bsfl and dubia for his staples.

Ok he should be getting D 3 - was the urate like that before the meds? Make sure he's hydrated this could be causing the orange urate -- we need Tracie and ahbd to look at this

I remember you were talking about orange urates earlier. And for a while they were white. Then we all together decided that moisturizing helped. Perhaps he again lacks moisture?

Oh ok. I was told if I had proper UVB he wouldn't need D3. Yes since the day we got him 3 months go it's been orange. He's 5 months old. He weights 199g

Babies need D3 till they are around a year old - we need Tracie and or AHBD to advise on this - the UVB helps him absorb / synthesize the calcium hes getting - please start rinsing the greens before serving - are the urates dried out looking chalky?

How long has he been on meds. altogether ? That can dehydrate them and also change the color of the urate. Offer water every day with a syringe, dripped slowly on his nose.

Are you sure I wasn't talking about my beardie that passed? Can you tag me or something? I hope you are right.

This topic is close to me. Foxy sometimes gets orange urates. I began to suspect that the reason for the Arcadia Deep Heat. What basking lamp do you have?
This one.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
