Thread: Frog has parasite?!

  1. #1

    Exclamation Frog has parasite?!

    My dumpy frog, Houdini seems to have a parasite? He has white strings (worms?) under his skin which I can see in light. He has been getting what look like liquid-filled bumps on his left leg since I bought him. I would treat them with Bactine and they almost always go away. I always assumed they were from landing too hard after a jump. Now he has multiple bumps on both of his legs and they bleed. I have continued to treat his legs with Bactine but it seems like it’s just getting worse! Has anyone ever seen this before? I’m taking him to the vet tomorrow but I just want to know what it is and what’s I could be doing now.

    Glad you're getting that checked out. Best case would probably be infected cricket bites, but I doubt there'd be so many in one place. Parasites are possible.

    I tong feed and make sure all the crickets that fall into the tank are eating or taken out so I doubt its cricket bites. Hes on his way to the vet now so well find out soon!

    I would be interested in reading updates concerning his prognosis. One of my tree frogs (maybe both...still figuring that out ) turned out to have parasites and they had marks not too different from the ones your frog has though hers never bled.
