    I really appreciate everyone's help and information, over the weekend I handled the chameleon (Trevor) only to give medication and some of the bug juice. I made as many changes from the suggestions you all had as I could and I managed to get his enclosure down to 67 last night while I was...

    No, the veterinarian did not. I have been gently massaging and the mouth and lip areas with cotton tipped applicators moistened with chlorhexidine or with saline solution.

    Not specifically, I had crushed up some bugs and tried feeding the chunks, but he spat those out, too. I will try the bug juice today!

    Do you have an example cage set up I could refer to? Also, how would you recommend feeding a Chameleon that cannot see?

    The UVB bulb is a reptisun 5.0. I will look into switching out the blue bulb, though that is a similar bulb to what my veterinarian uses. Thanks for the info!

    He is in a completely different environment and cage now. I will share some photos when I can take some. He has the Zoomed eco reptile carpet in his tank now. Before the substrate was soil and dirt of some kind.

    Please be patient and kind with me as I have never owned a Chameleon before and want to give my dude the best chance I can. I got him already very sick and I am doing my best to get him healthy again. He was a work place pet that lived in a constant 74F glass tank with constant humidity of 92%...
