On of my friend's tree frog (hyla chinensis) had a problem yesterday.
She saw a sort of little long bag hanging out from the frog's butt.
It was like 2cm long and 2mm wide, with some water inside.
She freaked out and thought it was the intestine, but this morning it disappeared and the frog was fine.

What can that be???

Whoa, I dunno. All I know is that my frogs make different colored poos sometimes, but I don't think that would have water inside!!

All I can say is I hope your frog is ok.

Unless the frog was shedding and it peed in his own skin?

Strange anyway...Well, it's not my frogs, it's my friend's, but I have the same species and better to identify problems in advance, right?

Problems in advance? That sounds like a problem to me! I wish I could help and I hope someone can.

hey alechan-

-i lost a frog due to this same thing. it eventually burst! crazy, i know. at any rate, since then, i've heard of someone else having the same problem, and having success with putting some sort of ointment on it. it then disappeared back to where it belonged.

good luck!

It sounds like a prolapsed intestine. You should really seek veterinary help for that because it will probably happen again and again until it is corrected. Some people do try to immediately and temporarily "fix" the problem by using a petroleum covered q-tip and very gently easing it back.

Amy is right on. This is caused from smallowing something too large to pass - like gravel, bark chips, too large of food items or too many food items at once. If it fixed itself, it will likely only be temporarily.

Sounds right Becki and Amy. I would double check you tank to make sure you have no gravel, chips or anything undigestable that can fit in your frogs mouth in the tank. This will reduce the risk of it happening again.
I would also find a good herp vet in advance so if this happens again you are imediatly prepared to sort it.

I asked my friend. The frog is fine now.

But she said she heard that something similar happens to people too. Damn! What is that precisely?

Human wise would that be a hernia? (sp) What ever it is, it sounds painful. I hope that it doesn't happen again.

Hernias don't protrude from your rectum. Hemerhoids do. Though hemerhoids are essentially "bulging" veins. Not your intestine.
Hernias occur when you have a separation in muscle tissue, like your tummy, and it isnt able to hold back the contents. In basic, non medical terms...................

Also, if this happened to you, and it corrected itself, you'd still go to the doctor, wouldnt you? Or when it did, you wouldn't want someone who didn't know what they were doing to push it back in there with a petroleum covered q-tip. huh?

my apologies,
nate

Lol, what are you apologizing for? I thought it was funny.

The topic was already gross, though. Frog or human--it's icky.

I wouldnt let anyone stick a q tip covered in anything up my butt. If it was life or death and had to be done I would do it myself lol. At least I would know exactly when to brace myself then. HAHAHAHA


We can never go back to the way it was...

Haha, but if you live to be 40, you'll be visiting the proctologist and it won't be a Q-tip anywhere, it'll be a finger.
