Light Green Urate & Foul Smell

I picked up a 2 year old male hognose off of craigslist last week and have him in quarantine. He had mites and I've soaked him twice in water and Natural Chemistry Reptile Spray. His overall behavior and appearance is healthy and he ate last week. When I went to change his paper towel today. I noticed that his urate was a light green and his poop had a foul smell.

I have 4 other hognoses and none of their poop has smelled as strong enough to stink up the whole enclosure, but I don't know if that just has to do with the poop being on aspen.

I want to collect a fecal sample to give to my vet, but thought I would get your opinions while I wait for it in the coming day. I've never seen a urate that color from any of my snakes.

Re: Light Green Urate & Foul Smell

This isn't completely uncommon and it may have to do with having soaked him in the water and reptile relief. Keep an eye and if the appearance and smell persists, then it may be time to look into things further.
