    Exclamation HELP IS TOAD SICK? Photos included

    Hi, I have a Bufo Regularis Toad that I got from a special reptile shop in paris called ďLa Ferme TropicaleĒ. Anyway, Iíve had this female for about a month and I decided to change her bedding (coconut fiber) which had white on the top of it. While I did that I put her in a plastic cleaned tub with washed hands carrying her carefully so she sits on my hand. I put some water in, and she was huge this whole time that Iíve had her super fat, then suddenly in this tub she pees a ****ton into the water and her size reduces x2 (Iíve never seen her this small!). Her real size is around 2.6inches I would guess.l then. I donít know her age. So sheís sitting, I pick her up carefully and hold her maybe 2 times. I put her down after holding and looking, she suddenly shoots out a weird red poop out of her butt and Iím really worried about it. It was very small, maybe 0.5mm. I think it was a round small white pebble like thing, surrounded by red stuff (I assume itís blood) with a bit of light brown in it. Did she has constipation this whole time I had her? She didnít go out ever by herself only at night, and she was huge and bloated this whole tome then she suddenly peed and reduced a lot in size. Then this red bloody thing came out. What happened, did I hurt her, is she just constipated?photos of the poop(?) attached.Her diet: Lots if live crickets. Maybe 25 this month. About 5 mealworms this month. Bottled Evian water. 30x60cm tank. Height 25cm. Temperature in warmest place 25Cį temperature in coldest 22Cį. Sprinkled some Vitamin/Mineral compound on mealworms that she ate, also included in photos.

    Sounds like she’s got some sort of intestinal problem, and since prey animals don’t show symptoms unless they’re very sick I’d take her to the vet.

    My parents (I’m 16) won’t let me take her to the vet: “ if she cost 100€ we would, but she isn’t a rare toad” is what they say, which I know yes isn’t good. It’s expensive. Do you know what this is a symptom of? Parasite?

    Hmm... I definitely know that feeling of not being able to take them. It may be a parasite so if you can get your hands on some dewormers from a pet store that might help. I would also heat up some water just a little bit, dissolve some honey in it, and let the toad sit in it for 15 minutes as that can help with constipation.
