My panther chameleons head is swelling up and sqishy


New Member
My chameleons eye has been getting smaller, sunken in,and dry, took him to Greeks and associates veterinary hospital they said it was an eye infection I got him eye drops , saline solution ,antibiotic mouth drops, and eye ointment, it's been 2 weeks of treatment and now my chameleons head is starting to swell up I don't know what I'm doing wrong and I'm really worried . He's a panther chameleon, 11 months old , I try to keep his temp between 72 and 85 and his humidity goes from 50 to 90 depending on our weather in Los Angeles. I dust his crickets and his meal worm and wax worms with repti calcium without d3 every day and once a month dust em with sticky tongue farms calcium/mineral supplement with d3

I see a few things I would change with the enclosure, it looks way to small (dimensions ?) 24x24x48 is a minimum size. add a lot more foliage towards the top. How much and often are you feeding him ?
Another vet visit might be needed. Here's one of mine just to give you some ideas on how much foliage they need.

Welcome to the forum…and happy birthday in a couple of days!

You said you are using minerall…I don’t think it contains vitamins. You should be using a vitamin powder with prEfromed vitamin A and D3 twice a month lightly in addition to a phos free calcium powder on the other feedings/days. It could be part of the problem.
