    Re: 3yo - Trixie not eating! Help

    Offer food as normal. The idea is to stimulate his appetite and get him strong enough to eat on his own. I would use it for a couple weeks while offering normal food item as well to see if he will...

    It's probably unrelated.

    Observe the condition of his skin closely. Does he eat it like they normally do or does he slough off and leave it? Constant sloughing of the skin or trouble shedding...

    Re: 3yo - Trixie not eating! Help

    What you are using is fine for supplements. You will need to give less often because adults do not need supplements as often as growing frogs. Once per week is sufficient.

    They are not necessary but can be used if you like. The important part is not using a light source that interferes with the animals day night cycle.

    It should be the consistency of melted ice cream. Do not make it more solid because you may give too high of a concentration of formula. This is designed to be a liquid not a solid. Do not feed him...

    Re: 3yo - Trixie not eating! Help

    Sounds good.

    As for the force feeding. You'll probably have to pry his mouth open and you'll only want to feed him about 0.5 mL of the liquid food at a time until. They have not evolved to drink...

    Re: 3yo - Trixie not eating! Help

    I'd leave him be since you've force fed him. Messing with him a lot will increase stress. Force feeding even more so. That's why it is only used as a last resort.

    Bulb height is based on output....

    You can try that.

    Be careful with these critical care formulas. They are made to break down and become bioavailable rapidly and can grow bacteria very quickly if contaminated.

    No particular lamp necessary. Just one that fits the bulb. Use something around 25 watts that is full spectrum. Exo Terra Repti-Glo 2.0.

    You can use it for the main daylight bulb so no need to...

    Re: 3yo - Trixie not eating! Help

    Is that the frog's normal color?

    Stop using the honey bath. That's not going to help.

    You are going to have to force feed the frog if it will not eat. Try crickets before you attempt to force...

    I suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Even offer a pinky mouse once every couple weeks if the frog has not eaten recently. Some do take more time than others to fully acclimate.

  18. Re: Pacman Frog help with possible Tetany/MDB

    You may be overreacting a little bit. The posture I see in the bath is normal and the leg stretching out is your frog attempting to lunge forward and not quite getting anywhere. I did not see any...

    Could be due to calcium deficiency during early development, but I cannot tell. The picture is very blurry, but the leg should be tucked in under the frog rather than extended.
