That’s very helpful information, thank you. Unfortunately a vet exam is out of the question. I cannot afford it. Do you have any suggestions on what i should do? I just recently found out shes a female and i have been over feeding. she’s over a year old and has never laid but it’s clear to see she is carrying eggs. She has had the laying bin for a couple weeks and has not taken any interest in it.I'm not a vet so what I say comes from my experience and that of others, studies I've read and vets I've dealt with along the way, etc.
Generally...if a chameleon is eggbound giving her calcium won't likely fix things. If a chameleon is eggbound the usual solution is to have her spayed to save her life.
If she's around the time she should have laid sometimes a little extra calcium in liquid form can help or oxytocin given by a vet...but the timing has to be right. Also, calcium needs D3 in order to be absorbed and it also needs to be in balance with vitamin A and phos.
If calcium is given and the eggs are too big because she's eggbound it might be possible that it will cause an egg to rupture or something else to happen.
The most common reason for eggbinding seems to be over feeding and temperatures that are too high along with improper supplementing sometimes.
An X-ray could help the vet figure out if the chameleon has follicular stasis irs eggbound.
