Default frog vomit?

the D. azureus I bought on Saturday looks as though it is vomiting. has a slime like discharge coming form its mouth and it is not being active. I have read taht it is normal for frogs to look like they are choking. Is this something that is normal or should I be worried

Nothing to worry about.

thanks, I thought it was nothing to worry about, but it's nice to hear it from someone else.

As far as I know, all frogs are unable to vomit.
The would have to regurgitate their entire stomach - which they don't.
I remember learning that some time ago, and I believe it applies to all frogs, but I'm not entirely sure.
So I would say your frog is definatly just shedding.

Thank you for your wisdom Ed!
I knew it was something like that. Couldn't remember the right term for the stomach thing. But I was sure they couldn't actually "vomit" like we do.
