Hi there,
Many toads secrete a toxic substance in their skin that can cause symptoms like what you are describing. First of all, wash buster's mouth out thoroughly with water, being careful not to squirt it down his throat. Then, I although many dogs improve after mouth rinsing, I'd recommend a trip to the vet right away. Some dogs can experience changes in heart rhythm that can be dangerous, so it would be best to have him examined as soon as possible.
