Trouble with Amazonian Milk Tree frog

I've had two Amazonian Milk Tree Frogs for almost two years and never had a problem, but now one of them has fallen sick.

About 8 days ago it appeared a little chunky so, thinking I'd been overfeeding, I spaced out the feedings from every other day to every third.

Three or four days ago the frog refused food and its throat looked baggy, and in the past two days the frog's condition has deteriorated rapidly. It looks bloated and is sort of gulping for air.

I've separated the frogs, and now not only do I want to do what I can to save this frog, but I also want to know what to do in case I start noticing similar symptoms in the healthy frog.

The cage conditions have been the same as what I've always kept them at--78-83 F with humidity in the 50's.

Any advice will be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you!

Andy
