Hello every one!

Firstly, I've read the guidelines, and I agree. Secondly, thank you for hosting this forum, and also, to all friendly participants. I have looked throughout the threads, and apologize if I am reiterating a common question. I am not seeing any descriptions that match our situation entirely. I looked up chytrid, and I'm not sure that's what we're dealing with here.

Recently, one of our two frogs actually did pass on. Gummi Bear Voodoo, you will be sorely missed. The other, Chubby Hoodoo, is still with us; However, his eyes look mighty strange, but not in any of the common ways I'm reading about. His eyelids look vastly different from when we bought him. He looked like any photograph of any tomato frog you might see, though not, his eyes appear to be open, when they are in fact, closed. They have white circles on each of them, and his eyes are closed so often, I can only guess that this is painful. When his eyes are opened, they are still black, but we did notice greyish white goo forming on Gummi Bear Voodoo's eyes before he died. Would someone simply suggest the same anti-fungal Lamisil that is used for chytrid? This does appear different than chytrid, and I cannot find anything on the internet that even remotely resembles this. The marks are so very round, and not fully white, but literally appear like white irises, with slightly less coloured centers. Very strange.

Much Love, and thank you in advance,

Sincerely,

Iris E.

Hey Iris, First suggestion is go to an exotics vet for help if possible. If you want suggestions here the best thing you could do is post a pic of the problem. A couple things that come to mind would be bacterial infection, doubtful it is fungal infection. It is a good possibility it is corneal lipidosis, a buildup of fat in the eyes, apparently brought on by too much fat in the diet, such as a diet of worms, baby rodents, etc. I hope this gives you an idea of what direction to take, Bill

facepalm

Iris, this guy bschwinn might very well be one of the best in the USA to give you advice on what to do, and you just completely ignored him...
He is quite the reference here, on this website.

I think all this might have been caused because of bacterial infection, probably due to bad husbandry if I take into consideration the other frog also died...


I think you waited too much and oral gel might be your solution, and don't go get another frog before finding what you're doing wrong.

1 drop of oral gel on the back of your frog will humanely put it down, the frog is obviously in an advanced and extremely critical situation, I pity it.



I've had this spring peeper for over 4 years..!

Fwogiz, thank you for the kind words. All we can do is suggest things, some people will step up for their animals , some may not. I hope they get their frogs treament and have a positive outcome, Bill
