    All amphibians give off toxic secretions, which is why hey should never be housed with a reptile. I'd at least call a vet with the exact species name of the tree frog and explain what happened.

    Tree frog secretions are for the most part toxic in the wild due to diet. A diet of crickets/mealworms makes the frog produce no toxins, because the food has no toxins. Your bearded dragon will be fine, lock the cage so it doesn't happen again. I use padlocks and sliding glass locks on almost all my cages where people come into contact with the cage.

    Was it a frog that your roommate just went and caught? or was it purchased at a pet shop? If your roommate just found it and fed it, then you may want to play it safe and bring your dragon to a vet, maybe bring a poo sample with you (make sure the frog didn't transfer any "bugs" to your beardie.)

    If it was big he might be impacted. Make sure he has a nice big water dish to soak in. Give him a bath and let him soak for 10-20minutes (supervised, and make sure you don't wear him out too much)
    Read this page on baths. http://www.exclusivedragons.com/Care...rary/Bath.html

    If he doesn't pass the frog in a day or two you should definitely take him to the vet. Just like the others said, if this was a wild caught frog he needs to go to the vet now.
