Runny Stool and Slightly Orange Urate

Hi,

For the past couple of weeks we've noticed that Toast's (10 month old male) stools are coming out very runny, with hardly any solid logs formed. It's just mush, and his urates are tinted orange. Up until a couple of months ago he primarily ate crickets, while eating a few leaves out of the morning salads we kept offering him; since then, he's started eating up to two whole salads daily while still eating a couple dozen crickets twice or thrice a week. We used to dust every batch of crickets with repashy calcium until we'd noticed the orange urate, and reduced that frequency since too much calcium is often cited as a cause of orange urates. The urates have remained orange.

The salads he eats are a mixture of rinsed collard greens, kale, arugula, and diced squash, and fill a bowl about the size of my palm. We basically keep it refilled as long as he eats it until a couple of hours before bedtime.

Also, while his stools have always been stinky, they feel like they've been especially stinky these last few months.. it might be bias, and we had a fecal test performed after the stink started - which came out negative for parasites. We're going to find another vet in the area that will do a fecal test for us, but in the meantime, are there any dietary red flags that could be causing this?

Thank you all very much for your time,
Bergmite

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
