As long as Dom only mouthed the toad and didn't ingest it, washing out his mouth with copious amounts of water should suffice to keep him safe. Mouthing can cause hypersalivation, vomiting, head shaking and face rubbing but little else. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

You're quite welcome. I can't set a follow-up in this venue and so would appreciate your returning to our conversation with an update - even after rating - at a time of your choosing.
