We have had a western toad (bufo boreas) as a pet for a little over five years. Although not a young toad when we got him, this has always been a very healthy little fella. Recently his appitite has decreased and he has become lethargic. He's shut down a little more the last couple of days, but that may be due to a big fire near us and the smell of smoke has made it into the house.
Question: what can we do to make sure our much adored family pet can have as long and good a life as possible? Right now, I'm concentrating on the basics: clean water, a good supply of crickets, and pretty much leaving him alone.
