This toad is known to have a glandular substance that can be fatal to dogs or cats who lick or bite the toad. The dog will foam at the mouth, can lose mobility and even die. If your pet encounters such a toad and has symptoms. It is important to flush their mouth out completely with a hose and get them to a vet immediately. The vet may have to keep the pet overnight for an IV flush.
