Ornate Horned Frog Won't Eat or Defecate

Hello Everyone,

My frog hasn't been eating for the last 6-8 months. However, if I hold a cricket by the legs, and annoy him for a few minutes, he'll eat it. I've been feeding him two crickets in that manner about every week.

Very recently, though, when he reluctantly clamps down and swallows the cricket, he'll look like he's about to puke, and I'm not referring to their natural stomach jig that they sometimes perform when digesting...he looks as though he's choking.

Also, he hasn't defecated in about a month and a half, and before that he had gone even longer without defecating. I'm getting really worried about him. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks,
Evan
