I know this post is probably way too late to help you but maybe it will help someone in the future. What was the frog fed? Clawed frogs will eat themselves to death, they are real gluttons. I your friend fed the frog a lot of dry pellets or sticks, the frog probably ate them too quickly and they absorbed water in the stomach and swelled up. I have seen the same thing happen to fish sometimes when fed dry foods that are eaten too quickly. Just my opinion.

Oh yeah, to help it, warm it up to get its metabolism working faster. Don't feed it for several days to let it pass what is already inside, and be a lot more aware of the amount of food it gets fed from now on. Overfeeding=bad. This assumes it didn't rupture anything the first time around.
