Urates question

Postby Mosedale » Mon Feb 27, 2017 11:06 am

Hi all. I have a question regarding urates. Are tortoises meant to pass this substance each time they wee, or is it just when the body needs to expel it ?. Pixie and Sprite both often wee with out passing any. When they do, however it's a runny consistency. Thank you. Julia.
