Found Injured Frog...HELP

****Pictures contain blood! Don't like it, don't look!****

My sister, and her friend found this frog today while they were out catching them, and told me that their frog was going to have babies. I had to take a look. What I found was a frog not having eggs, but an injured one. I quickly told my mom about it and said that I was going to heal him up. Im calling him Benjamin.

I grabbed a syringe, needle, and a waterproof spray on bandage. I tried to drain where i thought the blood was coming from and dry it up enough that I could spray on the bandage. Benjamin let me flip him over and I still couldn't quite see where the blood was coming from but im guessing either the leg or around his butt.

Has anyone dealt with frogs before? I could not let the girls play with him anymore, and i have made him my responsibility. He seems lethargic, but if i give him a little nudge he will walk on for me, so I don't think his leg is hurt. I would just like other people's opinion on what I should do in terms of feeding, and helping him.

I don't have any places close to me that treat amphibians... I thought about bringing him to the pet store, and seeing of they had any fairly decent people.. But I've decided that probably won't be an option and it would just stress him out

Did you clean up the blood a little more to see where he is bleeding?

Yes. I did. It seemed as if he wasn't bleeding from a wound but more from his butt. The bleeding stopped today and what was coming out seems to be going back in. He ate 3 crickets today, and I left a few more in there for him to munch on if he got hungry.

That's a prolapse. A prolapse is where the organs become compressed and have nowhere else to go but out of the rectum.

Is there a chance one of the munchkins could've stepped on him or maybe squeezed him a little too hard? I've never had to treat a prolapse in frogs, and there's no guarantee that there is/isn't internal damage. So just keep doing what you're doing and keep him comfortable!

EDIT:
also, be VERY careful about leaving crickets in with any herp (reptile or amphibian)! Crickets have been known to bite and attack the eyes of herps while they're sleeping.

A zoo probably knows how to take care of that species of frog better than someone who doesn't know what they're doing The zoo will help the frog heal
