I have an african clawed frog I have had for a number of years now. Recently, it developed what I thought was a bump or bruise under its jaw. This has spread to its facial area and nostrils. It is puffy and red, and I fear it is a bacterial infection (it was suggested that they are bacterial cysts). I have done some major water changes, and this has prevented the further spread/inflammation of the affected areas on the frog. The frog still eats EAGERLY, and does not show signs of stress (ex. dilation of capillaries in the webbing of the feets, etc).
I have never had to use medication to treat any of my pets, so I am hesistant to do so. I have an antibiotic that is for fish, but I want to make sure it is safe for frogs if I were to use it. Its brand name is spectrogram, and its active agent is kanamycin sulfate and nitrofurazone activity. Is this safe to use? I was hoping for an antibiotic that is speficially for SCALELESS fishes, but I couldn't find one at the LFS. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Thanks for your help.
