    Update on Chamy the constipated cham, not good

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, I never knew I would be so immersed in the world of chams. I shed my tears while I cradled him in some fleece one last time. It's going to be hard to look at his cage everyday. (Live plants in there so still got the lights going.) Unfortunately my other...

    Update on Chamy the constipated cham, not good

    RIP Chamy It's with a heavy heart that I have to say that Chamy has passed away. I stayed with him all morning made sure he was comfy in a blanket with heat until the end. Even though he was getting a lot of fluids he still got dehydrated and just stopped fighting. We did everything we could. A...

    Update on Chamy the constipated cham, not good

    He is very weak, and yes we had two x-rays done and the vet said he was super healthy otherwise. We have tried both and managed to get 4 small messy poops but not enough. He actually passed away this morning :(

    Update on Chamy the constipated cham, not good

    Thank you for your sympathy. This is my first cham and we love him. His cage is perfect, just that stupid cold snap and BF didn't have the heat on. (He's got heat lamps obviously but when the house got below 50 degrees it doesn't help) Surgery is not an option unfortunately because we have...

    Update on Chamy the constipated cham, not good

    It's been a looong process and a lot of dedication but we don't think he is going to make it. It's been almost 2 weeks now (2yr old male Veiled chameleon, got extremely constipated when a cold snap came through) He's been to the exotic vet twice, X-rayed, and there is nothing more we can do...

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    Thanks! I've been doing literally everything I can and I'm glad I learned from this experience. I feel so bad for him! So I'm going to nix the bath time and do the heating pad. Took about an hour for him to pass the urate. I feel like a mother with a baby at feeding time with him on the pad LOL

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    X-RAYS! update So for an update, he had passed some urate twice but no fecal matter. He went to the reptile specialist today and we got a calcium blood reading and x-rays. He is not impacted! He didn't eat anything he wasn't supposed to but he went into a hibernation like state which caused...

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    Thank you for the link to the other post. As far as I knew, mineral oil was safe and worked well for a lot of reps. The Dr. I saw see's a lot of Reptiles but isn't an expert, that's why he recommended the other Reptile vet in my area once the weekdays were upon us. I will see what he says. I...

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    UPDATE! got to vet Thank goodness I was able to locate an emergency vet that delt with Reptiles only 20min away from the expo! Brought Chamy in and they checked him. They said they didn't feel any hard deposits in particular but still recommend getting an X-ray at an expert Reptile vet today...

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    Yes, I definitely realize this now, its much more than constipation. I want him at the vet today but no one is open! Going to try to find somewhere that may not be Reptile experts but may be able to help. He didn't fall last night...on his branch under the light but I know my time is running out

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    I wish I could, he would have gone there this morning! Where I live ALL vets and exotic vets are closed until tomorrow. No one is open unless 4hrs away. Maybe someone will know at the expo today

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    Turn for the worse So I've been trying everything you guys have suggested, smooshed pear with mineral oil, grape with mineral oil the next day, mist, warm soaks while rubbing belly. He had no problem eating the fruit. But I just found him at the bottom of his cage :( he's very sluggish and so...

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    Gave him mushed pear with some mineral oil last night and making sure he's getting plenty of water. I'm getting hirnworms at the expo tomorrow so if it doesnt pass by then, hornwoms it is! We do have grapes! He gets more than Dubais, I breed them so that's the staple. I do super worms...

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    Have not tried fruit! will definitely try a pear though! We can get him to eat mostly anything. The rep expo is sunday so I was going to pick up some hornworms and silks. I read other posts about they not going for 10-12 days but he's just so uncomfortable I didn't want to wait that long to get...

    Veiled Constipated, what else can I do? worried

    Current Problem - I am almost positive he is constipated. Bloated, grouchy, not moving around as much, not basking and has not pooped in 3 days ( ive checked). Is still willing to eat but don't want to over feed if he can't pass. (or should I continue feeding?) Already tried: warm tub soak...
