the medicine never seemed to help any at all
i'm pretty sure we caught it at an early stage
and it just got worse and worse after we started the meds
the vet really stressed him out too
we've always just let him walk onto us rather than grabbing him
and she grabbed him 3 times
its been really really really hard
apparently hes not completely gone yet
his limbs are completely limp
hes just laying on a towel
opening his mouth really wide to get air every once in awhile
with his eyes closed and sunken in
yes its a jade plant
its on a quite a few safe plant lists for chameleons
neither of these are the initial site we found it on but...
for those of you who haven't read my other posts,
our chameleon frank acquired mouth rot around the beginning of the month
we took him to the vet on the 9th
she said he had mouth rot and a swollen tongue
she gave us baytril and meloxicam
we've been syringe feeding it to him everyday
do you have to hold your cham when you have to open his mouth to put the meds in?
ours usually leaves his mouth open
because hes mad and once we put the meds in sometimes tries to bite and if he does that means the meds just got on the glove
so we have to do it again
maybe its the age...
how do you know if its been aspirated?
is there an easier way of getting him to open his mouth for his meds
rather than sticking a brown gloved hand in, holding his head so his mouth stays open
and dropping in the meds?
we tried to drop 2 drops of the herpcare in his mouth but he kept his mouth...
well we just took our cham to the vet a 4 days ago
because he has mouth rot and a swollen tongue
he hasn't eaten in 4 days
the day before the vet he ate a 2 silkworms
how long can they go without eating?
he has been drinking somewhat
