Our veiled chameleon seems to have injured his tongue. Nothing will stick to his tongue and it is bright pink and swollen - he cant eat on his own. Took him to the vet and got antibiotics. I am currently feeding him with a syringe (meat babyfood fortified with retile vitamins). Is there a good chance of his tongue healing itself or will I be feeding him by hand for the rest of his life? Also, is it common for chameleons to injure thier tongues? HOw does it happen? I wonder if it is something in his cage or if he just may have bitten it? Any thoughts?
