These were handed over to me today, in pitiful condition. First is Tempo, an Egyptian Toad. He has a respiratory infection, and what we think is an inner ear infection, which has thrown him off balance. He has head tilt, currently spins in circles and flips on his back when he hops.

Here is Tempo...

Here is Tempo's 10 gallon hospital tank...

And a quick video of his spinning...

Next up is Lyric, a baby Tomato Frog. He's in pitiful condition. Respiratory infection, a swollen, buldging right eye that's clouded white, and his left eye is ulcerated severely. He's completely blind.

Both Lyric and Tempo are on Baytril antibiotics for the infection.

And Lyrics's very temporary 2.5 gallon tank with an undertank heater. I'm transferring him to a 10 gallon tomorrow, after I pick up another heat lamp. He's on papertowels, instead of bedding, to keep it from irritating his infected eyes.

Jebus those poor frogs :(
I hope they recover quickly as they both look like they are in pain :(

Poor little guys! Hope they recover from their infections and that Lyric thrives despite the blindness.

I know the head tilt is not normal but it makes for an adorable photo. :)
