Great advice, friendly people, and lots of frogs!
Thanks, as always, for the reply regarding the article on house flies as feeder. I shared the information !
For those of us ( ME) who cannot stand the thought of maggots; what do you think about dusting crickets with the Zoo-Med ( freeze dried) house fly product referred to in the article/material ( in the link you shared w/me)? Dust--meaning grind it to the same consistency as ie Rep-Cal and then dust the crickets at feeding time. Specifically for Agalychnis species.
actually - two questions: What do you think of bean beetles as feeders?
Thanks again, Lynn
Thx for the kind words and sorry for the delay...I don't receive email notices of posts here, found this accidentally. I see posts on the thread right away.
Antifungals were recommended to me by vets at the NY Aquarium, back when I worked for WCS and was researching a book on seahorse care. They may have had opportunistic fungi in mind, but I've not looked into it further. Methylene Blue seems effective against bacteria and fungi, although not all.
Yes, round tip would be preferable, thanks,
Happy new year, Frank
I hope you don't mind me messaging you out of the blue like this, but I just saw your link to the seahorse articles - very useful.
However, I do have a couple of queries/comments. With regards to dispelling gas in the pouch, I would always recommend a round-ended plastic catheter/feeding tube - much less likely to break and/or damage the pouch?
Also, is there a reason you recommend specifically anti-fungal medication as cover? When we've seen pouch pathology (we keep several species) it's always involved bacteria or mycobacteria, never fungi in my experience. Have you had different findings?
I would be interested in your thoughts.
I hope all is well.
Would you kindly consider helping with an answer? The scope of this question can head in a zillion directions! I did what I could. But I am not a vet nor am I herpetologist. I respect the fact that... I know 'just a speck' ! Passionate and in formed - but still, 'just a speck'. http://www.frogforum.net/tree-frogs/...tml#post148700
I know you are very busy. Thank You !
Perhaps you have come across a recent journal article or research project regarding vitamin toxicity and frogs (specifically.. tree frogs)
Many Thanks , Lynn
