Yellow/Orange Urate?

Not open for further replies.
The past couple of days Little Foot (my beardie) has been having yellow/orange tips to his urate, with a couple of days (including today) being completely orange or yellow. I read that it could be from too much powdered calcium/vitamin supplements, so I stopped giving him any for a few days but it didn't go away so I just started giving him very small amounts. He's about 8 months old and he's been having this issue for about two weeks now. Should I be worried or could it just be from his food? (freeze dried crickets and grasshoppers)

Do you feed anything orange like carrots or squash? Is he getting greens too or only insects?

Yellowy brown color to the urate can mean calcium overdose. I had it happen once with Smurf. Cut back on calcium for a week. If it hasn't improved by then I'm probably wrong. It took only three days for Smurf to show improvement.

There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
