 Medicating Veild Chameleon

I bought my chameleon from a pet store about three weeks ago, and I had noticed his back was really pointy so i took him to the vet. The vet said he had scoliosis and some metabolic bone disease? We have him on some medication that they said he has to take orally. Unfortunatly, he hates being ’man handled’ and has become severely stressed, I had been putting the liquid calcium and anti-biotics on his crickets, so he gets the medicine without the stress. The lady at the petstore said not to do that, but didnt know why?...... Can anyone answer this question for me? :D

I’m new with a veiled chameleon also but usually,petstores...are stupid and give out false information and don’t take good care of their animals.But it’s safe to do that. Hope he becomes cured and healthy again

its better to "inject" your feeder insects with a needled syringe
for reptiles that are not allowing/easy to be "dosed" orally.
Blaptica dubia roaches are a very good feeder insect for "injection dosing" of medication
