Treating abscesses- great, detailed, step by step photo heavy, tutorial by KF

Abscesses are not uncommon in certain chameleon species, and wild caught imports frequently arrive with them. Kristina Francis, of the Melleri Discovery website, created an excellent tutorial on treating abscesses. It is in a Mellers' foot but the same would apply to any cham species. I have followed the tutorial with successful results and so thought it may be useful to others as well.

DISCLAIMER: Of course, a vet visit is always the best option.

Kristina also has an excellent gutload recipe on the site.
