A week or more ago one of my toads started swelling rapidly. When he looked something like a tennis ball with legs I started treatment. I isolated him from his friends in a small 10 gallon hospital tank. On thursday while he was taking a bath in antibiotic solution (50mg/1gal tetracycline and tea tree extract) I pricked his swollen skin with a sterile needle. He deflated over the next thirty minnutes with a cloudy liquid (no blood or anything). I have been giving him a bath twice a day for thirty minnutes each in this antibiotic solution with little hope that he survives because the condition is usually fatal.
His pin ***** hole has fully healed and I am no longer able to tell where I pricked him. He ate for the first time today (a wax worm out of my hand). He is still a very sick toad and unable to catch his own prey. I never expected him to make it to this point. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do next? I plan on continuing the baths for a few more days (10 days total) and will keep the poor guy in isolation until he looks healthy. Should I do anything special with his diet or try anthing else?
