    I've heard of it, it's referred to as 'Michelin Man Disease'

    Apart from the name I know nothing about it I'm afraid so you will have to do some searching

    Yes,I have seen one with dropsy.My veterinarian has an aquarium in her office and she had one that was like that.I can't remember what the problem was,exactly,but the frog died.

    Here are two links,though,that say it is from a bacterial infection,so you need to go to an aquarium store and get an antibacterial medication to add to the water.Good luck.

    Puffing up is common among frogs; it makes them look bigger.
