Well guys, I finally had to put my sick FBT to sleep Saturday night. He wasn't showing any signs of improving at all, couldn't swim, wasn't eating and I even found him flipped upside down on his back unable to turn back over - if he had done this in the deeper end of the water he likely would have drowned so I felt it was time to end his suffering. I had treated him for a month trying to nurse him to health and am fairly certain now that he had some type of brain anomaly and not a treatable infection. He was the first one I have had to put down myself and it was about the hardest thing I have ever had to do - but he is in a much better place now. He will be missed.

Awww poor Stitch. So sorry Becki

We had a couple FBs at work die. Found one all bloated and slimmy in the water dish Saturday morning. (I only work Saturdays and the persone that was there Thursday and Friday never changed the water so I think it was an ammonia overdose.Needless to say, that person doesn't work with us anymore.) The other FB somehow wedged herself *under* the water dish and couldn't get back out and died there. I KNOW she wasn't under there Sat morning when I changed the water because I check to make sure ever since smooshing my baby Duke under his water dish.

Oh Becki, I'm so sorrry. When I had to put Tony down it toally wrecked me, but know you did the right thing. Poor little guy, I'm sure he had good karma so maybe you'll see him again in another life.

I'm sorry, Becki, I know you did all that was possible to do and that you take excellent care of your frogs, so this really isn't fair. At the very least, Stitch must have lived as best a life as was possible under your care and that, I'm sure, is very appreciated. Feel better and rest in peace, Stitch.
