    Calcium overload?

    Hello Everyone,

    Been while ... we survived brumation and Spiccy and active as she haven't been before :-)

    I do need advise - is there known symptoms for calcium overload or any idea/suggestions why part of urate to be pink colour?
    I believe I even asked it some time ago, and our vet when we visited him haven't raised any concerns but I do remember reading somewhere that urate can be pinkish in case of too many calcium.

    Beardie feeling well, no concerns apart of this pink colour, and if it's started from entire urate to be pink, now it's consistently small part of it will be pink and rest is white.

    Our diet is mix of BSFL and crickets, she doesn't like any greens, only blueberries from time to time so I'm thinking to adjust diet and cut Calcium at all for some time, so it's will looks like 1 day is BSFL and second day crickets with multivitamin.
    Give it go for few weeks and see what is the changes - does it make sense for you?

    Thanks a lot,
    Regards,
    Alex

    Hi Alex, as far as I know there are no symptoms for calcium overload.I know the health problems it can cause but I have never heard of discoloured urates. Usually redness in faeces is due to something in the diet like tomato or strawberries etc.
    Maybe lay off the multi vitamin for a week or so as well and see how you go

    I reckon you'd really have to be going overboard to get to an overload. A vet could run bloods if you wanted to be sure but I'd be changing the diet and add each thing back in slowly to see if you can narrow down the food that could be causing it.

    I think there are no over-calcium in the diet. He's just fine.
