Thread: Whites tree frog prolapsing every night for three days

    Default Whites tree frog prolapsing every night for three days

    My frog has prolapsed every night for the past three days, I've got it back in fairly fast with sitting her in sugar water but it keeps happening, the tank is at 43 humidity / 26-29 degrees Celsius and the frog is about 5 months old, fed gut loaded crickets.Name:  IMG_20180503_003733.jpg

    Update I've noticed she's incredibly thin compared to my other frog in the same tank which wasn't how it was at the start :// Name:  IMG_20180503_004630.jpg

    Do you know if he's been getting the same amount of crickets as the other frog? If so, he could have what is called "wasting", which is weight loss caused by disease or infection. This in conjunction with the prolapsing makes me think your little guy needs to see a vet to be diagnosed because they are likely connected. The vet can also give the frog a stitch in the cloaca to help prevent further prolapses.

    That's pretty bad. Not a vet but repeated prolapses can be a sign of infection. plus they are dangerous on their own and need to be kept damp. I'd see a vet for sure.
