    Default Need help with writing a perfect red eyed tree frog caresheet....

    I am taking the last of the 3 red eyed tree frogs my local Petco and donating them to the Erie Zoo in PA. They are very excited to have them. Petco is going to donate them. I am taking them into my care until they are eating on their own again.

    I would like to combine the caresheet here and any other tips anyone has to share. Of course, I'll have a few tips of my own.

    Please add anything you can to make their care as perfect as possible.

    Thank you!!!

    Thanks!

    They definitely need some TLC before they go. I've got the treatments ready .

    On our way home now...

    Maybe mention the "settling in" period? To disturb them as little as possible for the first 2-3 weeks?

    That's all I got, lol.

    Just adding on to the original with pointers for sick care like the pedialyte soaks, and honey soaks for constipation. Just trying to think of any possible instructions they may need.

    Here they are... Poor babies. Look at the settings and nasty molded moss they had them in. I left the two plants and log thing at the store. They let me take the tank and water bowl which were thoroughly washed and rinsed.

    They are a bit stressed out right now from the pedialyte soaks, force feedings, medicine and the housing adjustment. I'll let them rest the rest of the night.

    Unfortunately due to the poor condition they're in, they will have to be handled for a bit. They should be pretty settled by the time the zoo gets them.

    I will give them a 2 week course of metronidizole and see how they do. Hopefully by having them in the proper humidity they will not need soaks for very long. I think they will start eating again now that they should feel more secure in this setting. They had them out in the open with no coverings on the sides and the plastic plants were prickly, so whenever I went to the store to check on them, they were away from the plants. I will keep their temp at 78 to 80 degrees to help stimulate their metabolism and to help their immune systems fight off their illnesses. The metronidazole will treat the infections and will also stimulate their appetites. Once they start eating I wont have to hold them, which will lessen their stress even more.

    They are really pretty. The one female has a bit of blue around her eyes. She's the thinnest, smallest one. I think I have two females and one male, judging by the croak of only one when I picked them up.

    The people at Petco were very happy I could help them. I am very excited that the zoo wants them. They take good care of their animals. I would love to keep them, but it's just too many. I spend about 2 hours a day providing frog and tank care. I'd never let them die and would have taken them anyway, but this is a great alternative . I'm very happy for them .

    I might be helping to build their enclosure there. We'll see.

    Here they are.....

    Thanks Lynn! I try . I just love animals and I can't see them in such conditions and them starving themselves because of it .

    I really think they'll pull through. It took Lucky and Callie 6 weeks to heal up. They're doing really well now. I'm hope these little ones follow in their footsteps.

    My retf rescues are improving daily . We definitely have one male and two females . Two are now eating on their own as of this week. The thinner female is starting to sit near the cricket bowl, so I'm hoping she'll join in soon.
    They are still receiving metronidazole and SSD cream to their light green spots, which are nearly gone.

    I am very pleased with their progress .

    All healed up, eating and soaking on their own...and now off their antibiotics since Monday. So far, so good . The male sings every night.

    I have yet to name them, but now that they are strong and doing well...it is time . Any name ideas? There are 1 male and two females. The one female is, shall I say, the boss of the tank. She eats first every night and the others wait until she is done. She always sleeps on the front glass or in the front of their plant. The other female is the sweet, shy one. She tends to be more skittish and cautious. She has a favorite leaf she loves to curl up on on the left. She has 4 white spots and bigger eyes in comparison to her size that she always opens wide enough to see the blue rings around the sockets. She's adorable. The male is the most active of the three and loves to hang off the side walls and plant branches and he sings as loud as he can every night. He's funny.

    So I've been trying to think of names that fit their personalities.

    I think I will be housing them through the winter depending on the zoos ability to create a vivarium for them. We'll see. If they remain with me they will need more space. The hospital tank they came home in from the pet store is only a 12x12x18, which is too small. So, I guess another true vivarium may be in the works .

    Here are some new pictures...
