My 2 1/2 yr old Jackson cham has been becoming quite sluggish over the last 2 months or so. He's never been overly active (for a cham that is), but now he hardly moves. I've also noticed his decreasing appetite starting about 2 weeks ago. I can see no flaws in my husbandry or his housing (oooops, just remembered cage not cleaned for several months). he resides in a nylon Reptarium (just upgraded to aluminum and screen cage by Blue Beast), 90% live plants, tree branches, misted 2x/day, 2 overhead Reptisun 10.0 bulbs. He has been fed 1-3 Blaptica dubia roaches (instars ... adults r too big) every 2-3 days, dusted w/ Nekton Rep vitamins 1x/week (even gave a F/T pink mouse 1x/ mo for 3 months just for the extra proteins and fats). Things have been slowly changing over the last 2 months. Oh, I started mingling him with my female every now and again (after she was quarintined). Any ideas what's wrong? I've got him on Pedialyte (1.5 ml SID PO for 3 days...to ward off any dehydration). Don't no if its kidney dz from extra proteins(pinkies) or resp. infection (although he's not gasping or dyspnic in anyway). Help...please.
