Customer Question

I have a veiled chameleon. He is just over a year now. It has been 2 weeks and worried about his health. Sleeping a lot in the day, lost weight, clearly dehydrated despite us spraying him and feeding him. Unsure how or why this came about but not sure what else to do. We are giving him baths and showers. What else can we do? Someone mentioned before hydration salts? We have not seen a vet yet but been told they can make miraculous recoveries from baths/showers...
