    Default Injured Frog Need Help!

    I found an injured Bullfrog today when i was outside. It looked like its right for arm was badly wounded and had a black strip going across the back of it maybe a burn? Its forearm is red I thought it was blood am i right? The frog is currently free of disease symptoms he has enough energy to turn on its back it doesn't hop a lot. Im going to wait until tomorrow to try to introduce fruit fly's the frog is rather small around half an inch long. Im keeping him in a small tub container for water to keep it moist for the night. Do I have to pick up anti-fungal solution? Hes to weak to come out to climb out of the container in the 10 gallon tank i have him in. I think part of its fingers were cut off when a car ran over them. PLEASE HELP ANYONE!

    Ella, If the bullfrog is injured, only a vet could help him. He may need antibiotics to prevent infection if he has an open wound. Since you found him outside I assume he is not your pet frog so you may be reluctant to take him to a vet who specializes in exotic pets including frogs, but perhaps you could call one and ask if they will see him for you. At a half an inch in length, he could eat small to medium crickets but being injured and stressed he probably won't eat.

    Hi Ella, you've gotten some great advice from Frogdaze. The only thing I would add is that if it's only half an inch long then it's not a bullfrog - even young bullfrogs are much bigger than that.
