He's able to walk again but now he's sitting in his water dish with his legs shaking and twitching like he can't control them and his belly is unusualy round and hard like he's constipated I've have this frog for 2 years and don't want to lose him how can I help him (He's a young wood frog)

What kind of frog? Do you give it vitamins and calcium? It could be a nutritional deficiency. Try some calcium and vitamins on it's back in the water. Supplement the food by dusting if you don't already.

It's a wood frog (Lithobates sylvaticus). I do dust his food with calcium and vitamin. As for putting it on his back, would I just put the powder on his skin? That won't hurt him for anything?

directly on its back with a light mist is for quick absorption if you suspect deficiency. Dusting the food should be adequate.

A calcium deficiency would be my first guess too. I'd suggest dusting food with Repashy Calcium Plus. Very good stuff and has a bit of Vitamin A in it as well.
