Help!!!! lol found a urate for the 1st time ever today in Indie & Roxys enclosure and it was a slightly gritty one.
Not sure which one it belonged to wacko.gif
Now I know this is a sign of dehydration and this is the 1st one I've ever seen although hubby now tells me he found one last week but had no idea what it was rolleyes.gif
They are bathed daily for as long as they are willing to stay in there, have water in their enclosure, they normally walk under the water when we spray soil and they're food is always run under the tap before feeding.
So my problem is I don't really know what else I could do blink.gif I just done a quick google search and seen it suggested a few times to feed some cucumber.
Is this ok and how often should it be fed?
Any advice will be much appreciated biggrin.gif
Many thanks x

Hi Cara,
The only thing I could suggest is that you up the bathing to twice a day. Also, provide them with a dish of water if you haven't already done so. I'm not too sure about the cucumber. Hopefully there will be others along shortly to offer you more helpful advice. Take care Cara. wink.gif
Kind Regards

Yes your right it is a sign of dehydration , they really need soaking for 15mins every day , the best way to stop them getting out of the water is to use a washing up bowl ( not the one you use for the dish's ). hope this helps.

Hello
I would give two baths a day as it is a sign of dehydration,cucumber does have a high water content but dont use on a daily basis only as a treat,if i was you i would stick to baths.

Hi Chris
Thanks for your reply, they are bathed in a litter tray, they don't climb out but climb the sides constantly untill they are taken out when they've had enough rolleyes.gif .........
