    Unhappy Baby bullfrog won't eat! Please help!

    I've had my bullfrog Frederick for a few months now. He's still a juvenile frog but he's gotten to where he absolutely will not eat. I tried soaking him in warm water as suggested by someone at my local pet store. I even tried getting someone to help me insert crickets into his mouth after I pried it open with a flathead screwdriver. But he just pushes the crickets out or regurgitates them. I give him his vitamins on Mondays and Wednesdays and he seems healthy and lively but he won't eat. He has some sort of nose condition which I think might be an infection. We've been treating him with I think it was betadine without painkillers. His nose seems to be getting better but he looks like he's going to starve. And it's been at least close to 2 weeks now! Someone please help!

    Oh I almost forgot to mention he's not wild. I adopted him from my local pet store.

    So, he doesn't even try to hunt?
    He might be constipated?

    Well he hasn't soiled the water in his tank in awhile either. Maybe. I dunno.

    I don't know much about constipation in frogs... or how to treat it, but if I were you, I would find out and start doing it before it's too late.

    My parents are too cheap and selfish to take him to a vet. That's actually the reason why I'm turning here for help.

    I'm sorry. I meant for you to search here for constipation relief for frogs.

    To treat constipation, you should try putting him in a warm (not hot! check with a thermometer) bath. Adding sugar or a drop of honey can stimulate him to poop without hurting him.
