Thread: Is this a cut?

    Default Is this a cut? Please Reply

    I notice there's something in my red eye tree frog's leg. I wonder if it's something that I should be worried about? Frog is sleeping if you wondering.

    This is my first time being in the forum.

    If what you're talking about is the darkish spot in the fold of the frog's leg on the right, it looks like the spot is just a piece of mulch (or something similar) from your substrate. My frog always gets little pieces of moss stuck in the same place, and it always gets it out on its own. If I'm missing what you mean, please tell me.

    Hoppingmad may be correct. Bits of dirt/coco fiber etc often get stuck to frogs. Unfortunately it is hard to make out small details like this from a single photo. Its probably nothing to worry about. Even if it is a cut, for now monitoring the injury is all you need to do. Frogs will usually heal from small cuts and similar injuries on their own, and often only need help if the injury is serious or it seems to be getting infected. If you can get some more photos from different angles later, that might help.
    I hope this helps.

    Thank but I still kind of worrying. The cut is kind of red and it look like it peeling off. I’ll reply back if the frog is acting strangely.

    That changes things. If you could get some more pictures like I mentioned earlier, that'd be great. If you start suspecting an infection you can use Neosporin WITHOUT painkillers(painkillers can be very harmful to frogs) on the wound. Apart from this, the best thing you can do for now is keep the environment clean, and be watchful. Good luck!

    Painkillers will more then likely actually kill the frog. When you euthanize a frog at home you use oranges and it’s the pain killer agent that does the job. In oragel it’s the benzocaine, so as mentioned above make sure there is no painkiller in it at all.

    It’s turns out that the cut is the soil. However, I known the red-orange shade under it’s legs and it didn’t move for around 30 minutes after waking up. Is this normal?

    Being slow to wake up isn't much of a concern. But if the frog sleeps an entire night or two that would be worrying. The underside of the legs don't seem red enough to be concerned about in my opinion, but keep an eye on them.

    I known there's bump on it. I thought it part of the body structure or something like that but when I do research, I got worried. Is this normal, I think I raise humidity a bit too much (usually 70-85)

    Do you mean the two bumps behind the frog's head? If so those are part of the skeleton. It's kind of hard to make out the rest of the frog.

    There's other picture. I known there's a tiny white spot in it.

    I can't make out the white spot very well but these frogs having white spots sometimes is a bit like humans having freckles. If it's a raised bump that may actually be something but I wouldn't worry too much unless it got bigger.
