    Default Bloated sick firebelly!!

    I was hopeing someone new of a cure for this bloating.hes getting worse.his whole body top to bottom is filled with something. Ive been to vets with other toads in the past and they have no clue with toads.i tried the honey bath but that had no effect.i know its gotta be bacteria.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.i feel so bad for the little guy.

    Thanx,markName:  Picture0091.jpg

    Hello Mark! That bloated frog does not look good. Any local veterinarian available? If not; read this and try treating for protozoa with Metro (will also help against some bacteria and if still sick at treatment end, follow up with Baytril (Enrofloxacyn): Frog Forum - Basic Frog First Aid? If alone I would clean enclosure and do a hospital set-up for frog. Are there more frogs in enclosure and how are them? Be aware that either parasites or bacterial infections are contagious. Can you please answer these questions: Trouble in Frog Enclosure ? Thank you !
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
