My previous chameleon just passed away unfortunately but, I am looking to buy another over the summer. I'm from Cleveland, OH and was wondering if anyone new any reliable and great chameleon breeders that I could purchase one from? My last one was from PetSmart and after talking to other people, I was unaware their chameleons, and other chin stores, tend to have a ton of health issues so I am looking to avoid that! Thank you!

Oh man so sorry for your loss. How long did you have him/her?

Sorry to hear about your chameleon and welcome to the forum. Are you looking for a specific species? What was your last chameleon?

Edit: I looked and saw you had a veiled. I know @jannb will be having some beautiful babies around April that should be ready to home in the summer.
I was interested in another veiled chameleon most likely or a panther!
I’ll be sure to message @jannb

Sorry for your loss. You will want to make the changes in husbandry that I gave you for the last one. Also you will need to clean his cage thoroughly to ensure that you do not contaminate a new cham. Were you able to get the fecal done to see if it was a parasite issue?
Thank you. And unfortunately not, he hadn’t gone to the bathroom and so I couldn’t get a fresh sample before I took him to the vets. They said he was too small as well to run any blood tests.
I took apart and cleaned it cage so it is ready for the next one and I’ve been messaging people so this new one will have better husbandry too! :)

Do you know what killed him? And how to prevent it from reoccurring
I’m pretty sure he had parasite. I took him into the vet, told them exactly how I was taking care of him and they said I was doing everything really well for being a first time chameleon owner. Although they were unable to test for parasites because I didn’t have a fecal sample to bring in and he was too small to draw a bloody sample, I’m pretty sure he passed because he had a parasite. The vets had given me calcium injections and antibiotics injections hoping that they would help improve but the next day when I went to give him his injections he passed shortly after.
