Can't tell you anything about the vets...I don't live in that area.

For mouthrot, the normal proceedure is to clean the areas where it is removing the bad tissue and the "pus". There should be a culture done of the material removed to determine the bacteria involved (often Psuedomonas aeruginosa)...and then the chameleon should be put on an antibiotic that will kill that bacteria. Sometimes its necessary to flush the mouth wounds out for a few days too.

Make sure to keep the chameleon well hydrated while its on the meds.

Mouthrot is difficult to get rid of sometimes....and often requires more than one cleaning out episode.

Good luck with it!
