    Default Rescue frog with bloat

    Hello, I may be taking in a from that looks to be severely bloated. I'm not sure of the cause but the frog is housed on gravel currently. I'm going to try and raise money to take him to the vet but what can I do in the mean time? I"m going to try to pick up the frog today or sometime this week.
    Here is a pic of the frog.

    it's possible the cause was being fed the wrong food. there isn't really much you can do, but just for the comfort of the frog and the safety of the fish, I'd recommend quarantining it. don't feed it bloodworms or fatty foods. stick to frog pellets or similar.

    When did this occur? And do you know if it's hard bloat or soft bloat? Both tend to be caused by poor water conditions, so:

    -How many gallons is the tank?
    -How often do you preform water changes?
    -What is your filter set up?
    -What are the tank's other inhabitants?
    -That's the water's temperature/ammonia/nitrate/nitrite/pH levels?

    I recommend immediately quarantining the frog and treating it with a salt bath (try a tablespoon of Epsom salt for every 5 gallons? Also look up other people's recommendations, for they vary) and Maracyn just in case until you can get to the vet.

    The previous owner said she fed a lot of bloodworms.

    I just got these frogs yesterday. I do not know the specifics about how they were being kept.

    What is the difference between soft and hard bloat? The swollen areas are soft.
