Default About frogs and dogs?



My 7 lb yorkie came across a fat frog in my yard, he was after it, and must have licked/mouthed it. Immediately, he started vomiting/frothing at the mouth/ crying/couldn't stand up. I called the er vet, and they said to wash his mouth out with water, but don't let him swallow it..??
He was in so much distress, that his mouth was open, tongue out, very red/purple, so I was able to use the sprayer in my kitchen sink.
I then called the vet back, and they said if he does not recover very soon, to bring him in. The poison from the frog causes a dog to hallucinate. spikes a high fever, and can result in convulsions...My dog was really poisoned, and I thought I was going to lose him, after awhile he could stand again, and I kept trying to wash out his mouth. He recovered, I will not let him out in the backyard at night as long as these frogs are around...I do not know how they get in my yard, I have a picket fence, w/ stones etc at the bottom,because my dog is so small. My yard is all gravel.
Warning, these toads can kill a dog... He must have been crying and flattened to the ground because of the hallucinogenic affect
It was a horrible experience, I thought my dog was going to die, and the effect from the frog was immediate.

It sounds as if your dog has encountered a cane toad. They are highly toxic and produce a thick yellow goo through the glands in their skin. If ingested it causes symptoms like the ones you have discribed. They are a quick breeding species and have a habit of invading new countries and breeding to the point where they can be considered a plague.

There are also other types of frogs that lives on muddy places and sometimes lives or likes staying on banana trees (yes, banana trees) that has the same venom or poison on their skin. I had the same struggle when my dog toys a frog by tossing it (He don't like their taste) but accidentally he bit one of it(then same things happen; fever, etc.). So, since I don't know what to do. I thought of giving him sugar (we all know that sugar sometimes helps poisoned patients), though it's proven to human only, I still tried to used it. And i think it helps. We didn't go and consult any vet after that.

Really? I didn't know that. And it didn't even come into my mind even a single time. I have not yet experience any of these with my dog. I'd try to ask my vet, just in case anything happens to my german shorthaired pointer.
