Hi, hoping that you can help me. My turtle has a frog stuck in his throat. As a result it is now moving around its tank as it normally would. Does anyone have any idea of how it can be removed?

What do you mean it is stuck in his throat??
How old is your turtle or how big??
This shouldn\'t be a problem...if he/she is moving around normally then it shouldn\'t be blocking any air passages...hopefully it will go down on it\'s own..
anyone else have a suggestiong?

If it was stuck in his throat you would think it would be caughing, gagging, gasping for air, swimming back and forth in his aquarium as if he was panicing. Are you sure its in there? how can you tell? Is there a lump in his throat?

I think i got the ron idea out of what u said lol. I thought u ment that the frog is alive in ur turtles throat and the frog is now moving around the tank normally in ur turtles throat. LOl well this proves how idiotic i am :) I think u should like get it to a vet? Or somehow get ur turtle to swallow.
