Are there any issues with a veiled young chameleon?
Higher temperatures could lead to issues: Veiled Young (under 1 year) – a little cooler. Around 29c/30c (84f-86f) And again please make sure your Chameleon, no matter which sub-species, does not get near or climb up to the heat or UVB. This will cause problems including thermal burns, PKC (Photo-kerato-conjunctivitis) and severe dehydration.
What kind of light does a veiled chameleon need?
For me, I see best naturalistic activity when a nice bright white bulb is used, although I am currently using one of the new Arcadia Deep Heat Projector bulbs on my female Veiled Chameleon. This provides no light, but infrared A & B wavelengths. And so far, after a month or so it’s going amazingly well.
Which is the best way to bask a chameleon?
Not just one branch under the basking bulb, but provide several horizontal and vertical options in that area. This gives your Chameleon far more choice on the temperature it wants to bask at. Much like in wild conditions where they would use different levels of branch. Also use foliage so that your Chameleon can seek less heat and UVB exposure.
How often should you mist a veiled chameleon?
So a couple of mistings a day works for most. For a Veiled Chameleon, as long as the hydration options are there all should be great even if it does drop below 40% due to spraying slightly less.

What are the different types of keratoconjunctivitis?
Keratoconjunctivitis is a group of inflammatory eye conditions involving the cornea and the conjunctiva. Allergies, viruses, and bacteria are among the causes. Some types are associated with congenital or autoimmune disorders. There are steps you can take to relieve symptoms.
How does keratoconjunctivitis affect sheep and goats?
Infectious keratoconjunctivitis of cattle, sheep, and goats is a common ocular condition characterized by blepharospasm, conjunctivitis, lacrimation, and varying degrees of corneal opacity and ulceration. In severe cases, ocular rupture leading to blindness can result.
What to do if an animal has keratoconjunctivitis?
A third-eyelid flap or partial tarsorrhaphy, which will shade the cornea from sunlight, together with subconjunctival injection, may reduce morbidity in severely affected animals. A temporary eye patch glued to the hair surrounding the eye is an inexpensive and easily applied treatment.
