Customer Question

Hi. I have a six month old veiled chameleon. The other night my dog actually grabbed him for just a moment. No visible injuries, and I got him away quickly. But I know it scared him. Since then he's been sleeping on the ground and not eating much
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your chameleon. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your chameleon?
Customer: He's always been very healthy. Eats like 15-20 crickets per day. No problems until the past few days

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

Is he able to climb on his own accord?

Any avoidance of using his limbs at all?

Is he eating still?

Has he had a veterinary checkup since injury?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No vet checkup. He seems able to climb but is slow. No obvious injuries to his limbs, and he does seem to be eating, though maybe not as much as before
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

Can you provide a video of him if he's currently active?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It might take me a min; I'm actually at work and my partner is home with him. But I can

No worries. I can wait.
