    Michelís mouth is still open. I have seen him gasping. He is having trouble walking and hopping, he trips a lot. What do I do????

    What kind of toad?
    I hope it's doing okay. At this point if you haven't taken it to the vet I would strongly recommend doing that if the toad is still alive. Can you explain more about what's going on or take pictures?

    Heís a 6 month old gulf coast toad that I found in the wild as a baby. Iím looking in to taking him to the vet. I posted about a week ago worried about his open mouth but never saw any replies. Iíve been supplementing his diet with calcium powder and taking him outside regularly. I have been force feeding him for a week and a half as he will not eat, but he made a pretty big poop a few days ago

    I'm not too sure how to care for that toad but if you are able to get it to a vet that would probably be the best way to go. What kind of supplements are you using and what are the conditions like for the animal in your care? Like what is the temperature and humidity? What feeders do you use?

    Also just in case you were wondering, Michel is a guy. He has a blue chin and he squeaks. He also has nuptial pads on his thumbs.
