When laying eggs doesn't go as planned...

Posted by Dr. Wilkinson

Recently we had a female veiled chameleon come in to see us.  She had laid 12 eggs at home but then stopped.  She is kept by herself, but female reptiles can develop and lay eggs even without a male present.  She looked great on her exam, so we gave her some medications to induce her to lay, and it worked!  She laid 34 more eggs, for a total of 46.  After her ordeal she was very dark and looked very skinny, but within an hour she was climbing around and back to normal like nothing ever happened.  She sure enjoyed her meal of crickets the next day!

This weekend Dr. Wilkinson has the honor of presenting several lectures on reptile medicine at the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, the biggest veterinary conference in the country.  While this is a huge honor and she's very excited, unfortunately that means there will be a little bit of an inconvenience for our clients.   We will be CLOSED on Saturday, Sunday as usual, and Monday morning.  We'll be in the office Monday morning to answer the phones, but we won't start seeing appointments until 1pm.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes anyone.  Please let us know if you have any questions!
