Bloody stool.

Postby _ld99 » Mon Aug 17, 2015 8:59 pm

For the past week my azureus stool is half brown and half red. I'm not 100 percent sure if it is blood but there is a red stain on the wood where the stool was. What could be the cause? What could i do to treat it? Thanks!

Sometimes the red colour could be due to supplements - vitamins or even hydei fruit flies with 'red' eyes = no worries

It could also be a large hookworm load exasperated due to recent stress = moderately bad

It could be due to feeding food items that are large - bean beetles, some worms and crickets. Melanogaster fruit flies should be the food staple.

I would separate the frog if it is with other animals and research 'quarantine'

I feed them melonagaster flies. So if the frogs acting fine I probably don't have much of a problem?

impossible to tell for sure without a vet and a fecal examination.
