As long as Puna only licked the toad and didn't bite into it or ingest it, simply washing out Puna's mouth will suffice. Puna now just needs to be rested in a quiet environment. Chewed or swallowed toads require more aggressive management - cardiac and/or neurologic monitoring . Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
