Nematode

 

The nematode disease can have very serious effects on your pet frog. In the beginning you may notice small patches of skin that appear to be very dry and flaky. If the condition is left untreated it can quickly spread over the entire body of the frog causing your frog significant discomfort. The stress level of the frog is also likely to increase because of the discomfort that they are feeling.

One of the most important things to remember about nematode is that it can easily be transmitted to other frogs that are housed together with the infected frog. If you suspect that one of your frogs does in fact have the nematode disease your first step should be to quarantine the infected frog. Doing this as soon as possible is vital to avoid infecting the remaining frogs.
