Current Problem - Today when I had Charlie out on his free range. He done a poop and his pee had some orange color on it. He is very active through out the day in his Enclosure and ever time I walk by his cage he come to the door and wants me to let him out. He eats good but can be abit picky. Does the discoloration in his pee mean he is dehydrated or is something wrong with me boy?

He's eyes look fine to me. Just give him extra fluids just in case. Do you give his feeders any water?

If his droppings continue like to look like that, I'd recommend going to a vet to get him checked out

Yes, I wouldn’t be worried just yet. His eyes are not sunken, his skin looks hydrated, he has a good appetite, he’s active, you see him drink, you have an appropriate misting schedule, and this is the first colored urate you’ve noticed. You only have one hint at something being less than ideal while you have many indicators pointing in the right direction.

Now if any of the positive indicators mentioned above change in the coming days then I’d say it’s time to see a vet.

Yes it was the only one I have seen all the other one are normal. I definitely will keep and eye on him and his poop if it will happen again then I make an appointment right away. Thank you again now I can breathe a little easier.
