    Exclamation Clear blob coming from cloaca

    I saw my tomato frog Bob in his water dish and saw this small
    white clear blob that seems to be getting bigger i dont know
    what it is though. i doubt its anything serious, it dosent look
    like skin though and its not a prolapse, once he hopped out of
    his water bowl, the blob stayed there.

    It is mucus. Keep a close eye on him and what color any further expelled mucus is. This can be caused by various things some good and some very bad.

    Ok then. Keep an eye on the color of the mucus. If it becomes really pink or reddish he will need a Vet.

    Collect a sample and take it to a Vet for testing. He could be dehydrated or developing a bacterial infection.

    I dont have any vets nearby that specialize in amphibians, i already gave him a warm bath of
    dechlorinated water for 10 minutes. If he IS developing a bacterial infection or is dehydrated
    what medicine should i pick up and how often should i employ it?

    The meds to treat this kind of infection would have to come from a Vet. It could be nothing, but if it is dehydration you will need Unflavored Pedialyte. You add 1 ounce of Unflavored Pedialyte for every 10 ounces of luke warm dechlorinated water. Bath needs to be chin deep or to the frog's throat and soak for 20 minutes.

    You could purchase a fish antibiotic called Melafix to treat some bacterial infections in frogs. You will need to follow diluting instructions to the letter especially for a baby frog. You will soak the frog in the Melafix treated bath for 15 to 20 minutes per day, but don't do this soak unless it is actually a bacterial infection. As long as the mucus remains Clear/white should be ok.
