Hello,My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and Reptile Rescue.Shedding is very hard on all reptiles and they will slow down on eating. At this point you will want to monitor the Frog and make sure there is no reddening of the skin, she is not loosing weight. If she still continues not to eat, then a Herp Vet visit will be needed. Make sure to keep water cleaned and that you dust food with a good calcium powder. Hit reply for questions on this information.Joan
