If you are right handed, hold the frog in your left hand. If you are
left handed, hold her in your right hand. Initially hold with two hands, with one hand holding the
frog and the other covering her eyes until she is calm. DO NOT SQUEEZE THE FROGS. These
are very delicate animals and you can cause serious injury and death by squeezing too
firmly. Once she has calmed down, so that she lies limp in your hands, remove your hand
that covers her eyes. You can now do injections with this free hand.
Some people develop allergies to the mucus on the frogs.
In this rare case, glove use is permissible. If you must, use gloves, but a
colleague might be able to help inject the frogs for you.
Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands after handling frogs. Although it is
highly unlikely that you will "pick-up" a pathogen, other aquatic reptiles
(turtles) are known carriers of Salmonella.
