Weight Loss


Weight loss in frogs is usually the result of a more serious disease. Frogs are very susceptible to stress for a variety of reasons. If they are feeling stressed it is likely that they will not eat, or not eat as much as they should. This lack of eating can obviously lead to a loss of weight if it prolongs. When frogs are not eating properly they tend to be very lethargic and will likely not move around nearly as much as they would when they are healthy.

If you cannot determine the cause of the weight loss it is important that you take your frog to your veterinarian as soon as possible to have it looked at. A veterinarian will have a much better chance of pinpointing the cause and providing a solution to get your frog healthy again.
