Unhappy Have you seen this? Picture of my Tree Frog's Fungus

I isolated this little guy as soon as I saw he was sick. He has gotten worst. I am treating him now and he is starting to look better and by better I mean (more alive). The big huge bubbles go up and down on his mouth daily. Just when I think they are going away, they look like they are coming back. Have you ever seen anything like this? And if so, what did you do to get rid of it?













He was looking absolutely miserable and now he is looking up somewhat. I have gotten him the absolute smallest crickets that I can find for him. And I am treating him with an antibiotic and with a solution of water and peroxide. I am determined to get this little guy better. But, if anyone out there has seen this and knows what to do, please let me know! Thanks ahead of time. He needs some help. Oh, and I did call a vet. Told the secretary the whole story, they promised me a call back and I kept bugging them for days. Nobody ever returned my call. I get the idea that I am on my own on this one.

eeek!

I dont have any advice for you..I have never had a froggie.


I hope responds to the treatment your giving him and he gets well soon.
Maybe the vet is finding out info and will call you tomorrow or better yet take him in if you can.

Get better little froggie.

Awwe, have I been posting my "froggie" posts in the wrong spot?? The vet that I called here in my town is the only "exotic pet" vet that we have. The pet store gave me something that they use for fish, called ampicillin, effective against bacterial infection & flexibacter infections. Poor little guy. I'm trying so hard for him. I'm even treating him with the peroxide/water mix. But, like I said, he is looking better. I just wish that I knew what this is. Thanks everyone. I'm sorry if I have been posting in the wrong spot.

You could e-mail Dr. Fyre. I know that he usually treats dart frogs but I'm sure he'd have some advice.
