The reptisun needs to be the LONG LINEAR TUBE light not the short one use using.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!
Did the vet clean out the gland area?He has already been seen by a veterinarian and is currently getting Baytril by mouth once a day.
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.Did the vet clean out the gland area?
As I said before..."With chameleons the pus is like cottage cheese in texture and the antibiotics won't penetrate it to get rid of the infection. The glands will need to be cleaned out and flushed likely while the chameleon is on the antibiotic. You may want to do a culture and sensitivity test of the exudate to make sure he's on the right antibiotic."
As @Sonny13 said..."The eating is probably the infection, this is really painful for them"...the bug juice should be more liquid so he won't have to chew it.
