A Hobbyist's Account of Curing Bloat aka Dropsy

Thursday, January 12, 2006 6:30 PM

Willy is really really big. Like he's bloated...is that normal? Or is
there something wrong with him? I'm going to send you a picture of both of
them so you can see their size difference. Please let me know if there's
something wrong with him. He was that way when I got him. I'd never seen a
frog that fat before, that's why I got him...I thought it was cute...but I'm
worried that something is wrong. Please get back to me....

Hey...I just wanted to write back to you and let you know that I did some
research on that dropsy disease and I found a site that said that if you put
some salt in the water it might help. So we did that, and we also put this
stress coat formula in there...and now Willy is completely "deflated". I'm
re-sending the first picture I sent you along with a new one so you can see
the difference. I'm so happy...he's so much more energetic now to!! : )
