    Fire Bellied Toad Problem

    I have a problem with a fire bellied toad. I work at a Pet Store and we recently noticed one of the fire bellied toads was having problems. We didn't have any extra tanks to isolate it, so I brought it home in the hopes I could help it, since I have fire bellied toads and several reptiles myself. I've got it in a separate tank from my other toads. At first I just thought it had a bacterial infection, but now I'm not so sure. One eye is cloudy and I've been treating that with Melafix. However, its stomach is extremely distended and squishy, and its back is hunched. Because of this it kind of crawls sideways. It also isn't eating. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I feel so bad for the little guy and would like to get him healthy again.

    I am sorry to hear about the toad and more sorry that this thread was missed.

    I can't help you with advice but a very warm welcome to you.
    Quality of life is just as important as good health.

    No clue. Could be neurological.... or a number of things. Only a vet will know. Treating with Melafix could be futile if its not treating the proper thing.
