Some days my work is very satisfying. Take this African bullfrog, for instance. His owner brought him in for “bloating”. The word “bloating” was a massive understatement, as he looked like the Goodyear blimp of frogs.
Poor dude! He was having a very bad day. He was cranky, and none of his clothes fit.
Luckily for us, he was also a super nice frog, and was very cooperative as we drained the excess fluid from his belly. The fluid was a strange blue-green color, and became foamy in the bowl as we collected it. The fluid weighed more than he did.
See how deflated our froggy friend looks afterwards? And happy. I didn’t think frogs could smile, but this sure looks like one.
