    I don't know if a guy at petco is a specialist. I would listen to Grifthegreat over anyone.

    well...... i guess i need to say it again.... it doesn't look like MBD alone, the only way to diagnose it is to see bone density on the xrays, but sometimes you can tell without it if symptoms are typical. that is not a case here.
    dusted crickets won't do much, if that is in fact atypical MBD you need to use different supplements with repashy rescue cal being the best. However you might achieve opposite effect if you use Ca without need and with neuro damage present. in the other words you might be using tons of Ca and a frog will get not better but worse. Frogs are very sensitive creatures to everything, so whatever you use it gotta be what they need.
    I really hope you will seek veterinary assistance asap.

    P.S. while in a pet stores there might be people who know what they're talking about, I would estimate 99% of them have no clue. so specialist from petco... i better not to go there, too many threads here on pet stores and their advises

    Reason why most of the people post here with problems is because of the people at petco.

    It's better to buy captive bred versus the majority of wild caught animals in a store. They don't know what they are doing, and dish out halfassed advice.
    If I owned a pet store, I'd drop a computer in between the terrariums so I could google the care of each animal, that's how simple it is to take good care of an animal. Stores thrive on impulse buys, and people often leave there with not everything that they need to take good care of a pet, because if one of those smooth sales guys informed you of everything you actually needed in a store, you'd leave with a bill amounting easely over 500$.
    But let's face it, that's a number that kills impulse purchases.

    Seriously Bowser, go to a vet. It has been stated before, suspected MBD and even something neurological, no person from a petstore can help you. Not even people on this forum can help you at this point, you really need a vet!

    Youtube videos are another bad source. When I got my Mojo the pet store said keep him in a critter carrier with some tap water, and feed mice. I kept him like that for a week. Luckly I found these forums and was able to fix everything before damage was done.

    This is NOT going to get better on its own. Get your mom to read this thread if she doesn't believe you. Honestly, no one can give you any advice other than take the frog to a vet at this point. The guy at Petco is not a specialist. They may have owned frogs before, but they have absolutely no vet/medical training which is what your frog needs right now.
    Waiting will only make things worse. Yes moving is stressful on frogs, but not nearly as stressful as the symptoms you've been describing.

    Hey
    So i didnt get a chance to discuss the vet today but just now i turned off his light a while ago and he keeps opening and closing his mouth and moving out of his corner and sitting up instead of flat down he is sitting how most pacman frogs do
