    Default New Red Eyed tree frog with grey spots

    Today I bought a red eyed tree frog from a somewhat local exotic pet store. I already have one I bought a month or so ago from Petco and he is going great. However the new one has some weird grey spots on him/her. The owner of the store claimed they were natural, but they don't look like the natural white spots on the backs of red eyes that I've seen on this forum and elsewhere. Is this possibly a disease? The store offers a 15 day guarantee so if it is Oodinium or something they will refund me. I gave it a distilled water bath as soon as I got it home and it is now in a separate tank from my other healthy red eye until I can make sure it is not ill. If it is a disease and anyone knows how to treat it, I would like to go that route if possible as I don't want to take it back to have it die. It does seem active and looks in good health otherwise. Thanks.

    I recommend posting a picture. Oodinium is more prevalent in fully aquatic species. Also I’d advise against soaking your frog in distilled water. It serves no practical purpose and the lack of minerals in distilled water may throw off your frogs electrolytes.

    Hmm I can’t say for sure

    This does look very much like oodinium, and if so a vet trip is in order. In the meantime I recommend continuing your quarantine and consulting with a good exotics vet. Monitor it closely. Regardless I hope it improves and again I would advise you to seek a veterinary opinion. Search the forums for posts about oodinium.

    Good that does look like an improvement. Another possibility is that this individual was imported and during importation it sustained some injuries that are are now healing. I’m glad for you though regardless. (Is still keep in in quarantine for a while.)
