    Re: bring my one eyed frog home this weekend

    One option for heating pads is a thermostat. Basically, it's a probe that goes between the heat pad and the glass and you set your desired temp. The thermostat will turn the power to the heat pad on...

    Re: FBT Escaped

    I just lost my FBT to a neurological thing (he had a badly deformed leg from birth, and I strongly suspect it was just some congenital issues catching up with him as I've had similar things happen to...

    FBT Neurological Problem

    Hi,

    So I have been keeping frogs/toads for eight or nine years, and have had my FBT for about a year now. I adopted him because he has a deformed back leg and was starving in the pet store (it's...
  4. Re: Howdy! And... trouble with new Pacman baby?

    Mine took weeks to figure out the tongs. What are you trying to tong-feed? I tried basically everything I could, and nightcrawlers were finally what got mine to take food from the tongs. Both my...

    Re: The treatment of MBD

    Sand is kind of a bacteria magnet, but if a frog has an infection you're probably going to see symptoms like listlessness, strange looking poop/prolapse, and refusing food. As long as you don't see...

    Re: The treatment of MBD

    I don't see anything off with the mouth... Can't really see the hips well enough to tell if something is going on there or not.

    As for the possible edema, keep an eye on it. He doesn't look like...

    Re: The treatment of MBD

    Glad you got him and are caring for him properly. While pinkies aren't good to feed more than once a month, they do have a fair amount of calcium and vitamins in them compared to crickets and other...

    Re: PetSmart a little outdated on Pacman info

    I wasn't trying to tell you to stop doing it, I saw your location and figured that without at least two heat sources your room temps would be on the chilly side, so that's why your pac was...

    lol Nah, I was talking to Jason because he said his pac would sit on top of the substrate when he had the UTH on the side, but started burrowing when it was on the bottom. That along with him saying...

    Re: PetSmart a little outdated on Pacman info

    I'm lucky in that I have a room dedicated to my herps, so I use a space heater to keep the ambient temp in the right range... I don't even use supplemental heat at this point.

    I think using a UTH...

    Re: Frog's eye close

    How long is he keeping his eyes closed? If it's only occasionally (like a blink) or when swallowing it's not a problem. If he's sitting there with his eyes closed for long periods, that's not...

    Re: Baby pacman frog not eating

    Either the stress of being moved into a different environment (the critter keeper) or the prolapse could be enough to cause a frog to stop eating. Also, prolapses can sometimes be related to...

    Re: Are pacs nocturnal?

    Yeah, they're nocturnal. The slight temp drop at night is also part of what triggers them to unbury themselves and look for food.

    I usually have to give mine honey baths every other week at least, but that's because she has chronic issues with being able to go (she's also remarkably chill about it, so the stress isn't too bad,...

    Re: Baby pacman frog refusing food

    I'm glad you took him to the vet.

    You have to understand that when you say things like you don't have money to go to the vet and you "know he'll be fine", it makes it sound like you're ignoring...

    Re: Baby pacman frog refusing food

    I don't know what to say here. You've been told MULTIPLE times that you NEED to go to a vet. If that splinter came from inside him like you say it did, he probably has an infection from the...
  21. Re: Something protruding from my paceman frog?

    If you don't have access to an exotics vet, just take him to a regular dog/cat vet. They can usually dose antibiotics to the weight of the frog, and it's not very expensive.
  22. Re: Something protruding from my paceman frog?

    Okay, if that came from inside of him, his digestive tract IS perforated. You NEED to get him to a vet for antibiotics ASAP. Otherwise the contents of his digestive system will almost certainly...
  23. Re: Something protruding from my paceman frog?

    First of all: VET. There is probably nothing you can do for this at home. Second of all: We need a picture to give you more advice.

    Just to be clear, the piece of wood is coming out of him? ...

    Re: Sick Pacman Frog, what should I do?

    I'm not an expert on chytrid and have never seen/treated it personally, but from everything I've read it shouldn't be able to thrive above about 73. Since pacs shouldn't ever get below 75 it...
