Help! Possible prolapse in White's treefrog!

He has what appears to be internal matter buldging from his vent. It is protruding about 1/4 inch. The perimeter is transparent, and the central (closest to cloaca) is pinkish. It looks as if it has bubbled out. I must have caught it relatively soon after it happened, for it was still moist and had no substrate on it. I immediately put him in a small enclosure lined with wet paper towels. I added a small dish of purified water and placed 1/2 of the enclosure on a heat pad.
About 5 minutes later, he began to poop. The fece was about a third out, but was retracted.
Is this possibly cloacal or intestinal prolapse?
Could my frog just be having a hard time pooping?
He has shown no decline in health prior to the incident, and appears a healthy plump. I have had him for over 2 years, and have cared for a variety of anurans, but have never faced this problem.

I'm setting up a vet appointment tommorrow.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
