Hi, I am an experienced veterinarian and happy to help!
Before we start please note:
We are testing a new rating system. If you have any problem with it please let me know.
This is meant to be a continuous chat, and for this reason it is very IMPORTANT that you reply using the REPLY TO EXPERT button, BEFORE rating, if more information is needed at any time.
Toxication with a toad can be serious.
Signs can proceed to seizures, coma and death very quickly.
This is likelty to happen within 15 minutes of exposure.
You need to hose out your dogs mouth with copious amounts of water
e.g. use a garden hose
Also use a rag to wipe their gums and remove as much toxin as possible/
How long ago did it occur?
What color is their gums? Pink or dark red?
If they do not get seizures within the first 30 to 60 minutes then they are likely to survive with no long term issues.
I see you have left the chat - probably to treat Cosmo so I will switch modes so we can continue to chat further if needed.
