We can't help without a lot more info on how you keep him. Why did the vet prescribe Baytril? It is overprescribed often, and unless there was some testing done to isolate a particular infection may just make your cham sicker. It is bitter and can decrease appetite. It is also kidney toxic and the problem may not be infectious anyway. What do you feed, how do you dust and with what, what specific type of lighting, temps, water, humidity, etc. It could very well be a nutritional problem but we can't tell from your message. What supplements do you use and how often, what gutload? There is some very good nutritional info on the following sites that may give you ideas in the mean time. www.adcham.com, www.chameleonnews.com, www.chameleonjournals.com and www.herpnutrition.com.
