    Default There is a bubble coming out of my frog's back

    Im a Chinese and I live in China.There was a bubble coming out of frog's back about two weeks ago,at every beginning i didn't care this problem,but last week,the bubble becomes bigger and bigger,moreover,the frog has stopped eating.I used normal substrate that compressed coconut fiber ,in normal temperature ,and it is about 22℃ during the bubble coming ,then it changed to about 28℃.on the other hand,i used mineral water to immerse frog,I heaven't measure the humidity ,but i estimate it should be about 60% due to observation of substrate.

    The main food is smaller fishworm, every three days frog only takes 2-3 fishworm.Name:  231109fk8hk94n33ld646k.jpg

    totally agree with Grif! vet needed NOW! not tomorrow or the day after that, i mean NOW!
    it doesn't matter now what parameters of your enclosure/temps/humidity, although if a frog will pull through you'll need to change some.
    Save one animal and it doesn't change the world, but it surely changes the world for that one animal!

    Agreed, vet immediately.

    If the frog has stopped eating, my guess is there's also an infection involved. Any attempt to drain that bubble at home could just end up spreading the infection around the frog's body.

    Hello and welcome to FF! Agree with other posts in that it looks like localized edema cause by infection. This frog needs a veterinary, possible drainage, and anti-biotics now. Also, be aware your temperature is to low and overtime it will cause permanent damage to frog's kidneys and lymphatic system.

    One thing you need to do if keeping other frogs is too wash hands with hot water and antiseptic after handling this frog and it's enclosure. Do not let this frog share anything or get near any other frogs in your collection. Would transfer to hospital enclosure while you get visit to veterinary, good luck !
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
