Help dehydrated

I have a 10 month old female veil. She is usually very hissy and does not like to be touched. Tonight we found her lying in the bottom of her Atrium cold, and very pale. She is so lethargic she didn't react when I picked her up. I am think dehydration so I did the shower and plant trick. This perked her up some but she still isn't moving or even opening her eyes. The last picture was 2 days ago. Please help

The first was a week ago. Since then she stopped eating but was drinking. Last picture is after a 45 minute "shower". She still won't lift her head or open her eyes

This thread does show photos of her pale looks.
Please don't make more than one thread about the same chameleon having the same issues. It makes it hard to follow.

She moved more and actually opened her eyes. How often should I shower her?

Actually you should take her to the vets right away...I'm positive she's eggbound and going to die on you. Sorry to have to say that to you.

Don't shower her...it's not usually a good idea to do that when they're this weak.

I was afraid of that. We live in a small town. So the closest reptile vet is an hour away and doesn't open until 10am.
