update on tilted head

I posted several months ago that my WTF's head was tilted and he was walking in circles. The first thing I thought of was something neurological but since I had never owned frogs before, I deferred to my exotic vet for answers. Lumpy had several kinds of parasites and it was assumed that this was a symptom of that. He was put in hour long soaks daily with meds to kill the parasites. BTW, my vet told me it was very common that frogs have parasites, which I didnt know. I thought that since I bought it from a purely exotic dealer that I was safe...or safer than from a pet store since they seemed to know what they are doing. Both Lumpy and Happy were treated since I bought them both at the same store. Anyway, the meds helped so I guess that it was parasites after all. Lumpy is now walking in a straight line and the head tilt is almost gone. Here is a picture of Lumpy with Happy (his brother) in the background.
