No other symptoms, she weighs about 62 lbs. The vomit is slimy.
no, right now they are hibernating, so I know Harley dug her up from the ground. they typically bury themselves around the perimeter of the house and at the base of trees. Hmm, it could be a tree toad. we have toad that climb trees in the summer time, but from what my daughter told me, it seems like a typical toad that eats just insects like crickets.
Thank you very much for your assistance. I truly appreciate it.
Hi Dr. Peter,
Well, Harley continued vomiting and it began to smell like a bowel movement, but worse so I knew that the frog was probably stuck somewhere. So I took her into the vet and they did an x-ray and did not see anything, no obstruction, nothing. There was, however, feces in her bowel that was solid, not loose. I don't think they believed she ate a frog, anyway... her liver enzymes and white blood count were elevated and she was also starting to run a fever. I knew the frog was taking its toll on her. The admitted her and hooked her up to IV and administered antibiotics. She was not given any food until Saturday night. She was able to keep a tiny bit down. But still no bowel movement. I requested to bring her back home to see if she would be more comfortable and within 15 minutes of being home, she pooped out the frog! My daughter was laughing, you could see an eye and the legs. It was so gross and the smell was worse than the horse farm down the street on a hot, humid day! Anyway, she is fine and back to her normal self. Thank you for checking in, it would be nice if you were in the area! Thanks for all your help.
