This is a traumatic injury that's very difficult to treat. It may have had nothing to do with YOUR care or setup, but may have been the long term result of a problem before you ever got them. I remember that the seller wasn't too great and possibly his lack of care caused an intestinal injury much earlier. If the cham was stressed, dehydrated, constipated, full of parasites, and ended up with a partial blockage that weakened or damaged the intestine, you saw the end result. Without a full necropsy you'll never know.

The reality is, most vets have no experience with chams...even the more common cbb species. That is one of the things to check on before buying them...make sure you have some access to experienced care before you decide to keep them. I'm sorry you lost him. Good luck with your female!
