    Default Concerned about new pacman frog (Lump)

    I just bought my Pacman Frog a few hours ago and when i took it out of the container to wash it off i noticed a sizeable/soft lump on its lower back. does anyone have any ideas what this might be? I called the store and they said it may be a "blister", and i could return it if i wanted to. any input?

    Hello and welcome to FF ! Unless you are willing to spend $$$ on a veterinary; recommend return frog to store. That animal should not be offered for sale .
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    Poor little guy. That is a skin infection. They should not have sold him like that.

    Thanks guys. I assumed it couldn't be anything good. Probably caused from lack of care/being kept in a 5x3 carrying case since they got him. I am returning it tomorrow and have arranged to pick up another from another provider. Hopefully all is well with the new one.

    Hopefully they will take that frog to get treatment. Most of those infections are easily treated with antibiotic injections.

    I bet they don't (take it for treatment) in my experience it's not worthwhile spending hundreds on a relatively low value animal :-(

    Anytime one of mine is sick they go to the Vet. Just because a frog costs $15.00 doesn't make its life any less important. I strive to keep tbem all healthy and learn more about how to treat them when ill.

    Yup I would also be making an appointment with my exotic (vet) specialist I was just saying it's my experience with pet shops that they don't - sadly they just don't see it as cost effective
