    Chameleon in bad shape given to me

    hoping we have some chameleon people on here...my wifes friend had a 1 year old (approx) panther chameleon. I think it was a bit of an impluse buy, because they didnt know how to really care for it... they tried the best they could, but this poor things health has drastically declined. They told us they were done trying and would just let it run its course if they couldnt gind someone to care for it...instead of letting that happen they dropped it off at my house with all the cages and supplies they had...the little guys is sooo skinny and his hemipenes have prolapsed...i soaked him in sugar water last night and this mornig before work i got him to eat 9 silk worms amd drink some water from a dropper. I have an appt with our local herp vet at 3pm. I feel terrible for this little guy, but i am hopeful we can save him. Despite his appearance he is alert and moves around. I will post some pictures when i get home from he vet today.

    Poor guy :-/ Glad you got ahold of him and are willing to do what needs to be done by taking him to the vet. Good luck, and keep us posted!

    Awww poor little guy I wish I could be more helpful, but all I can say is I hope you can nurse this guy back to health! I'm glad he's in the hands of a more caring owner.

    The friends that we got him from i think were just in over their head. They took him to a vet, but it wasnt a herp vet...they had the uvb bulb too far away so he wasnt getting any uv. 1 1/2 hours till the vet. I took the rest of the day off of work to try and hydrate him. My wife has been watching him all morning.

    Re: Chameleon in bad shape given to me

    Just got back from the vet...as of now he thinks the little guy will make a recovery...his hemipenes still have blood flow to them so they are savable as of now. he told me to keep doing what I am doing. Continue to soak him daily and feed him worms daily. I have a checkup in a week...if the hemipenes havent pulled back in he is going to try and stitch them back in.


    His color is slowly coming back and he curled his tail, which the previous owner said it never curled...so i think we are making baby steps in the right direction

    Thanka will do...we arent out of the woods just yet. The vet said this week is critical...but he has high hopes. We will get this lil guy back on track...i am taking the tall screen cage the origional owner gave me amd building it up with branches for when he is healthy...just finished bleaching and cleaning it. Will be hitting lowes tomorrow durning my lunch break to buy some wood dowels to make climbing branches to weave through a live ficus tree.

    I hope the little guy pulls through I really do. He looks like he's perking up and fighting to hang on so I hope everything goes well for you both! Will be looking forward to more updates.
