Vet check up?


New Member
I want to get my chameleon a check up at my local herp vet but he hates being handled and will not even allow my hand to get close to him. Also, he is a really sensitive chameleon, therefore he will get very, very stressed. What should I do? :(

Its up to you but a few hours of stress is probably worth going through to ensure your chameleon is healthy

Unless you have a compelling reason, I would advise you to not take him to the vet because of the stress.

Most vets will do a fecal exam without having to see the chameleon first, that is your best bet for preventative care. Otherwise, if you post a picture here (along with your husbandry specs), the experts on the boards can let you know if there is anything you should be concerned about.
