My White's Tree Frog, Skunk, has been falling a lot. He doesn't seem able to stay up on the glass, tree, or leaves very well at all. He started it a few weeks ago and seemed to get better. But now he has started doing it again. His brother, Pig, seems to be fine. I'm very worried about my poor Skunk! Can anyone help?

my frog does the same . he is 3 and a half years old. now when he falls off his log he lays on his back for a bit and his legs twitch and now he is not eating. I feel like he is dying but i wonder if there is anything i can do. I just put a meal worm in there and he wont eat either. not a good sign. It looks like he is having a seizure but is that possible? His color is fine and his eyes are bright. but he cant climb the glass any more and cant jump after crickets. What causes this? will he die? what should i do?

Most likely. Sorry to be blunt. If you can't get to a vet there isn't much you can do but keep the frog in 40-50% humidity nice and clean at about 77 degrees.
Use paper towels. They can have tremors, probably a toxin? Hard to say.
Keep the frog quiet and give as much cover as possible. Don't mess with it or look at it much.
If you have methylene blue on hand for fish you can put a few drops into water and soak for 5 minutes. Or melafix same thing, few drops, make the water deep enough for the frog to rest in.
Mine has never liked the glass. Sometimes people keep them too humid or they get too hot and prefer to hide or burrow.
