    Unhappy Injured gray tree froglet; help please

    Hello all,
    i am new to the frog world but have been raising up and releasing the offspring of copes gray tree frogs which laid their eggs in my garden buckets.
    iIve learned a ton in the last 4 months , in part due to this forum and you guys!
    i have a froglet about the size of a dime that I noticed wasn’t eating even with tweezers and I noticed he/she has an injury with a large red area.- see picture.
    At first I thought it was to the cloaca but it looks like a leg injury (almost like blood under the skin) although he moves it just fine.
    just wondering if there is anything I can do besides sequestering him?
    thank you all!

    Looks like he might have redleg - a vary serious bacterial skin infection. I'd recommend taking him to a vet; quarantine him immediately.

    thank you for your reply!
    How do they get this? I’m worried he may have infected all the others.
    And now I’m worrying about releasing him into the wild assuming he recovers because I don’t want my wild grays to get ill either.
    any advice on a home treatment option?

    You said you are releasing them? Did you collect them from your area?
