chameleon sick need help ASAP!!!!!!


New Member
New to site but intros can wait. Ive had my chameleon for a little over a year. this past week she has been acting weird.....sleeping on low levels even the ground, very weak, barely eats. then today I noticed some poop was stuck in her butt, I took a closer look and she has worm looking parasites crawling around in it. I'm really scared for her and she is dying as I'm typing this. I laid het down on paper towels under her light and she just lays still on her side.....please help unless its too late I hate seeing her like this.
Keep her warm for now, but not too warm.

Welcome to the forum, sorry its under these circumstances.
Before you fill out the questions above, I would call and make an appointment to see a vet. Were not going to be able to save your Cham we can only give advice, hopefully you can see a vet before it's too late:(
