Hey, I don't really know what to tell you other than rehydrate the frog. I've had frogs escape an "escape proof" cage and get dehydrated and all I did for that was put them in a small container with warm damp paper towels in the bottom. Depending on the severity of the dehydration it may be a lost cause, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try.
Get it rehydrated as fast as possible and then worry about feeding since food is probably not going tobe the immediate cause of death.
hope this helped...sorry it wasn't much.

:Ok, i don't know what really happend, but i was sitting at my PC, and i hured a big thump.. And i tured around, and there was an adult tree frog, i have no clue how he got in the house, but he must have been in for some time, becuase he had spider webs all over him, and was pretty thin, and wasn't reacting to much from me picking him up. And he was very dehidrated.. So i got out a big rubber maid container, and put a hot damp towel at the bottem with a dish with hot water under it, it help re hidrat him, and i put 2 medium crikets at the bottem, he didn't seem to want to eat, but i was hoping that once he got more hidrated, that maybe he would come around. I didn't want to let him outside, becuase i knew it was getting kindof chilly tonight, and he wasn't moving much, so i knew something would get him.. OHH and what really werryed me was that i just so happend to look under him, and there was red spots, like blood red, i didn't want to touch them to much, becuase i didn't want to hurt him, but i thought maybe something tryed to eat him, or maybe from the fall in the room that maybe it was harsh brusing.. Can anyone help me out?? I'm not used to taking care of frogs, all i know about is snakes, and lizards.. so please help me fast!
