Sorry I somehow missed the part you asked what antibiotic. It is ceftazidime, every 72 hours, subcutaneous in the back. Here’s a picture of the vet doing the first injection. He made it look so easyHaha...that was so funny...I read your post about the towel and was glad to see someone besides name doing it that way...then I read this post and realized I had suggested it. Made me smile!
Thanks for giving me credit!
This towel method should make it a little less stressful.
One more thing...assuming your doing the needle in the front arm...try not to hit the bone. If you're doing it somewhere else please tell me...also what is the antibiotic?
I've used that method with water dragons (just try holding one of them still for it...they're bigger than a chameleon) chameleons and other lizards.
The towel also gives there feet something to hang onto that moves with the feet motions but doesn't really make the body move.
I used to do the whole thing by myself...got pretty good at pining an arm down and holding the chameleon in a position where it couldn't turn ebpnough to bite me with one hand while I gave the need,e with the other hand.
