i think my daughter's new pac man frog is sick. he's a baby, about an inch, had him about a month. he's in a 5 gallon tank with enough bed a beast to bury in, water, fake ivy, and i feed him gut loaded crickets every few days.

yesterday i went to feed him again noticed he was looking really fat, like bloated, and the cricket i fed him two days ago is still in there. my other pac man frog you can see his two back bones like where his legs are when he is in certain positions, but this little guy looks so fat-- like a balloon. so i decided to pick him up today to see how he was and he didn't make any movements really, i put him in his water bowl and he flipped himself over as i was putting him in it, and he made attempts to flip himself back over but i got scared and helped him flip back over. other than that, he didn't even try to squirm out of my hand when i picked him up like our other one does. does anyone have any suggestions besides take him to the vet?

i will more than likely be doing that on monday but there aren't any good reptile type vets in tulsa, had a bad experience with one vet here who "treats everything," and i'd like to try something else if i can.
