    what is an acf? and if your considering sticking a needle in your pet, DONT! period, you dont know whats going on, the risk of introducing infection is pretty high, and depending on where you poke, you could injure a vital organ. I highly recomend you find a reputible exotic vet soon, for your pets sake

    sounds like a vet thing to me as well, though I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to amphibians.

    Aspiration is a last resort and can kill your frog completely if done wrong. There are varying articles on the subject on the net. (I won't link them on this website.) I suggest you see a vet and have them aspirate if that is what is needed. I also suggest you ease up on the feeding that caused the bloating.
    If the bloating occurred quickly (over the course of a few days) you may actually have an infection on your hands which is why a vet needs to be seen.
