Description: anorexia of amphibians (anorexia; an- + Greek orexis desire to eat, appetite) - lack of appetite in amphibians (refusal to feed) in the presence of a physiological need for nutrition, due to disturbances in the activity of the food center.
Reasons: keeping in conditions deviating from the norm, constant stressful situations (aggressive neighbors, infections and parasites), monotonous or poor nutrition.
Symptoms: the body of starving semi-aquatic and aquatic amphibians swells, while terrestrial amphibians, on the contrary, lose weight, they seem dehydrated.
Starvation and dehydration are the most common
problems that occur in captive frogs.

Treatment: 5-10 pollen granules are dissolved in a few drops of warm water, a little raw yolk (chicken egg) is added to the solution, at the tip of a knife, calcium gluconate and calcium glycerophosphate powder in a ratio of 1.5: 1. The mixture is stirred and drawn up into a pipette. Open the mouth of the amphibians, raise the head and in small portions, give the mixture from a pipette. Then the animal is placed in warm water.
From the beginning of treatment, amphibians are improved their living conditions, as close as possible to natural conditions. After 3-4 days, amphibians begin to feed in a variety of ways.
Obligatory ultraviolet irradiation. Animals begin to feed on their own after a few days; in severely neglected cases, treatment continues for about a month.
Remember that recently purchased amphibians often refuse food in the first days (sometimes up to 7 days) until they settle in a new place.

Long-term physical activity leads to deficiencies of phosphorus and vitamin B12 in the horse's body (a large amount of phosphorus is lost with sweat), which in turn causes macrocytic and normochromic anemia. Horses are sensitive to phosphorus starvation, which often leads to dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system, and most often to lameness
Description: chytrid fungi (mostly aquatic organisms) are a group of lower fungi of microscopic size and primitive organization, mostly unicellular and mononuclear, living parasitically, and sometimes saprophytic on various aquatic plants, especially on algae, as well as on small aquatic animals
Amphibians, or amphibians, are the first terrestrial vertebrates that still retain significant connections with the aquatic environment. In most species, eggs (eggs) are devoid of dense membranes and can only develop in water. Each egg is surrounded by a transparent mucous membrane that swells in water
Despite the large number of species - about 2100, the general appearance and structure of tailless amphibians are of the same type : the neck is not expressed, the wide head imperceptibly passes into a short, slightly flattened body; adults have no tail; the hind limbs are 2-3 times longer than the front ones, have an additional section - the tarsus
