Hello all,

I have a five year old white's tree frog who developed a severe prolapse yesterday. I have tried everything from soaking her in sugar water, to Prep-H, to trying to massage it back in manually with Vaseline (I tried 30 minutes with that). Nothing seems to be working, and this morning it seems to looks worse, not necessarily is more showing but the tissue looks very red. I have her soaking in more warm sugar water, in a quarantine tank with only paper towels, and have had her there there since last night. I'm just not sure what to do anymore. I have called multiple vets but the only one that treats frog is an hour away (travel would be stressful for her), and also wants $70 dollars for an appointment. I love my frog, but as a college student I am not able to spend $70 for this.

So does anyone have any other tips on fixing a prolapse? And if not, do you think it would be best to humanly euthanize her? If euthanasia is the best option, should I use Orajel or MS-222 (If I can find it)?

You don't need to kill your frog because of this. It will heal, I have seen a frog of mine heal overnight with the sugar water treatment.
