Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
When did Minnie catch this toad? Did she eat it?
Do you know what species it was (ie cane toad)?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Is she drooling, retching, gagging, vomiting or lip licking?
