Initial Frog Problem Questionnaire Template

Postby Philsuma » Wed Aug 06, 2014 10:56 pm

This is a basic start of a template for general frog problem use. Think of it as level one tech support. I'll adjust and add to it, in time.


Basic Frog Problem Questionnaire Template:

answer all these questions as best you can (cut and paste)

1. What species ? How long have you had the frog(s) and where did you acquire them ?

2. What are your Temperatures -Day and Night - Highs and lows ? Are the enclosure lights too hot ?

3. What is the Humidity like ? - Percentage or guesstimate. What type of Water are you using ? Describe your tank/enclosure and it's lid or top.

4. What kind of food are you providing, how much and are you dusting it ? What superfine powdered supplements are you using and are they fresh ?

5. Any other animals in the enclosure currently or recently ? Tankmates / other frogs ?

6. Any type of behaviour you would consider 'odd' ?

7. Have you handled or touched the frogs recently ? Any cleansers, paint, perfumes, Cigarette smoke, bug sprays ect near the tank ?

8. Can you take pictures of EVERYTHING ? The frogs, the enclosure ? Take numerous pics of everything - that will be of great help.

One thing that might be considered is, what has changed recently. Like unseasonably hot or cold spells, have the frogs been moved recently, had another frog been added to an existing group, etc.
