I search the forum and saw where you have posted before about problems with your hognose. You should have mentioned this in this thread.
Before you had problems with it being too thin, this should have been your first clue that it had problems with parasites. One of the replies suggested that parasites would be a problem, but apparently that was not taken seriously. Getting your snake collection dewormed once a year should be just as common as changing your oil.
You were also using what was apparently captive bred frogs. Keep in mind that even animals that are captive bred or have been in captivity for long periods of time can be infested with parasites just as easily as wild caught animals.
On a side note, the poster deathstalker gave a rather pitiful argument for not feeding mice to Eastern hognoses. I have recently come into some new information that Iíll be posting soon regarding this topic.
