    Default Help! Baby Frog Problem

    Here is a link to the two pictures. For some reason, adding attachments here is telling me that I have a bad image file. Weird, because its just a JPG.

    Please, any advice would be helpful.

    Hi, the first thing you need to do is get the prolapse to go back in. If you sprinkle a little bit of sugar on the area it should make it go back in, and if you don't want to put the sugar right on the area you can make a sugar bath for him. you could put like a teaspoon of sugar for every 3ozs of warm declorinated water. After this you may want to give him a normal warm bath to wash the rest of sugar off. You may also need to bring him to vet to get a stitch if it was really bad to help prevent this from occurring again. But first thing is first you need to get it back in, you don't want it to start to dry out. And yes if you can answer those questions someone will be able to help you find the cause. Hope this helps.

    Yeah, the sugar should bring the swelling down. Try to get it back in as soon as possible or get to the vet. If it starts to dry out it can lead to necrosis and death.
    Also if you do succeed in getting it back in, keep a close eye on the frog because sometimes they have relapses.
