My gecko poop only the white thing

Post by hpoquiz on Tue Mar 27, 2012 2:03 am

I have'nt seen my gecko eat for the past few days and he pooped today but only the white thing. Is she sick or something ?

Having not ate, s/he just pooped out the urate (rather, she pee'd). Seeing that you've described it as white, s/he's well hydrated but because she hasn't ate she has no poop to poop out. Smile

I don't see how it would be an issue since you've stated that she hasn't eaten for a few days. Very Happy

Now, if you feed your gecko and it keeps happening, then it might be an issue. How are you feeding your gecko? From a bowl? Hand feed? Dropping the items in the enclosure?

I'm sure once she eats you'll see poop along with urate in a few days. thumbs up 2

It would help us out a bit more if you could take a minute to fill out the care questionaire. That way we're better able to critique your husbandry and make sure there's nothing that could be stopping her from eating and what's up with the poop.

Oh i forgot to add this. When i got her the breeder gave me some superworms coz he said thats what the gecko eats but my gecko never ate it. She only eats cricket. Before she stopped eating she shed as i remember coz her looks was dull the day bfor and she became shiny and colorful the next day so i have no doubt that she shed.

It goes 90 F - 100F during the afternoon

You have to have it set on a thermostat. If it gets too hot under the hide she will not stay there so she will not digest her food. You still didn't buy a thermometer probe? (Stick on temp gauge) It's a must have and she needs a cool side too.
(Repti Calcium with D3) this is not vitamins. She needs vitamins too.

She has a cool side and i was looking for this probe i couldnt find it and im using a dimmer which works fine but i need to adjust everytime coz the weather in canada is getting abnormal again. Last week it was hot as crap and this week it became as cold as hell again. I can't find a good thermostat that isnt from a reptile store which cost like 100$ +++

Like suggested previously, the Hydrofarm on Amazon is your best and cheapest bet. If you personally don't have a credit card or debit card, hit your parents up and give them the cash and ask them to buy it for you. It can't be that big of a deal.
