AB, now that is interesting. It sounds like an osmotic imbalance. Kidney failure can be involved in this problem, it seems. I’m going to take a leap here, and suggest that too much water available is not the problem. But something is causing water to be retained, perhaps. On the other hand, a plugged-up frog seems to have very similar presenting symptoms. So how does an owner get a sense of water retention, or poop retention? I must admit I know little about amphibian kidney problems. Any experience with this as a pet owner?
