    Default African dwarf frog broken leg-please help

    Hello all,
    I just purchased a ADF today. I have now found that it seems to possibly have a broken or injured/deformed front leg. He/she does not use that leg and it also appears that the "fingers" are smaller or are not fully developed. I don't think he was in this shape when I bought him. I think it may have happened as a result of a fall where the fish bag he came in fell onto my floor. My question is, will the leg heal on its own and should I be medicating the tank he is in, by himself ?

    If the fingers are not fully developed, then it doesn't sound like something that was caused by you.
    Would you consider returning him to the store? I don't know anything about medicating frogs, but my guess at your choices would be return/exchange for another ADF, or, keep him as is - could be he's adapted to his "disability".
