    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    ^Edit to my last post, you may notice his basking bulb is off right now (it’s very hot inside my apartment even with the AC running) but I wanted to point out that it is placed on the right hand side in front of the T5 strip. Thanks for reviewing!

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    Hmm okay, I have always heard 6-7” so I’m glad to hear that he will do fine with his 8” placement and I can even go lower if needed. I also attached a photo of my enclosure; there used to be a yucca plant filling out the bottom of the enclosure but it died while we were moving recently and I...

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    Yes, he tried several spots along the underside of his tail. He also tried several different needle sizes. Now my cham’s tail is all discolored, which makes me concerned but I read in another thread is normal after bloodwork? Photo attached for reference.

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    Thank you, I wouldn’t have known that soaking him may actually cause more harm than good so I appreciate this comment.

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    Thank you so much for this advice, I am absolutely going to make these adjustments. His t5 is ~8 inches from the closest branch, but I just lowered it from ~6 inches because with the warmer weather the lights were starting to burn his casque a bit (which has since been treated by the vet). Do...

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    Thank you! I will cut down on the D3 supplementation. I live in southwest Ohio, I called 4 or 5 exotic vets in Cincinnati and only two said they were comfortable working with reptiles (I appreciated their honesty). I already brought him to one of the two (All Creatures Animal Hospital in...

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    That was my first thought, I checked all of his toe nails to see if he had any damage to them and everything looks normal, just the swelling. The exotic vet said it wasn’t a break or anything of that nature, but he also was clearly not good at his job so I wouldn’t rule it out….

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    My cham has tucked himself away in his enclosure but I will get a full body photo as soon as he comes back into view. I’ve attached a picture of the supplements I use as well. I did ask the exotic vet that I went to to do bloodwork, he tried for about 30 minutes but was unable to draw blood...

    Gout- Herp vet did not offer treatment

    My chameleon started showing swelling in his rear Rt foot/ankle about a week ago (photo attached). I suspect gout given he has no symptoms of MBD and the swelling seems to reduce with increased hydration/soaking. I immediately took him to the only exotic vet in the area who will take chameleons...

    Estimating age!

    That makes sense! I just took this photo of him, but as you can see he’s shedding and was NOT happy about the camera in is face! I wouldnt want to stress him out by measuring his body, but for reference my wrist to middle finger is about 7 inches. Hopefully this helps!

    Estimating age!

    Hi all! I have a male veiled chameleon that I have had since mid-March, and I’m hoping I could get some help estimating how old he is so I can adjust his feeding schedule/amount if necessary. He has definitely grown since I first got him, and currently still eats about 8 crickets or roaches...

    Chameleon is consistently ashy/brown

    Hi all, I want to thank you all for the feedback. Only 3 weeks after moving him into a larger enclosure, adjusting his diet, and adding two live plants, Cornelius has finally begun to show some beautiful coloration and seems much happier! I’ll attach a progress photo for you all, sincere thanks...

    Chameleon is consistently ashy/brown

    Thanks for sharing this, she is gorgeous! I just ordered a 24x24x48 enclosure last week so hopefully I can get him moved in soon and he’ll be a little more comfortable.

    Chameleon is consistently ashy/brown

    Thanks so much for these graphics, I haven’t seen them before and they are incredibly helpful! I’m moving him into a 24x24x48 hopefully next week; I’ll be sure to use the lighting chart to make sure I get the appropriate lighting. Thanks again!

    Chameleon is consistently ashy/brown

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum but was hoping I could get some answers on the odd coloration of my veiled chameleon. I've had him for about two months, I'm not positive how old he is (maybe that's another question you could answer from the photos!), and he's always shown ashy or brown colors...
