Customer Question

Hello, my 8 month old lab/collie (30lbs) was foaming at the mouth for about 15 min while at the dog park. We came home a couple of hours ago and she has just been sleeping. Not interested in food and her stomach feels a little warm. Could this just be side effects of a possible run-in with a frog or something?

I suspect that she may be dealing with some nausea of an unknown origin. That could certainly be from exposure to an amphibian. Fortunately, living in Southern Texas, there aren't any toads or frogs there that are toxic to dogs. Drooling is commonly the most common symptom both with exposure to toads/frogs and nausea (whether that's due to a exposure or not). You can give a daily dose of pepcid to reduce the drooling and nausea. and excitement from a dog park can also cause drooling, as well, but this should subside after she calms down. Keep an eye out for any GI changes such as vomiting, diarrhea, etc. Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to issue a rating for me so that I am compensated for helping you today. Best of luck!
