    Default White's Tree Frog Swollen Toe (picture of injured animal)

    Bonk's been having trouble and I wasn't able to find anything exactly like what I saw with him online, so I'm just posting my experience. Maybe it'll help someone?

    He's about 9 now, eating normally, staying in his hide a bit more than normal, but still out and around. I didn't see his toe for a while, since he's been tucking his hands in. Also he doesn't seem to want to grip with the toe.

    The vet got an x-ray and said it didn't look like an infection, but like a mass. The lumpy toe looks like there's some slight bone loss there.
    Possibly cancer, so if it gets worse the only option would be amputation. Could be benign, though.

    Anyhow! Weird lumps on frogs happen and it's not always easy to tell what's causing them just by looking.

    Updating in case anyone has similar experiences:

    it turns out the vet's old x-ray machine wasn't clear. There hasn't been noticeable bone loss after all. Bonk got his toe amputated today. The tumor was quick growing and ended up the size of a pea. Because of his age it was done with local anesthetic only, no anesthesia. Now to wait and see.

    Glad to hear they did surgery. Around my location, a vet would not do surgery on any animal that's not a cat, dog, or normal pet.
