What happens when a dog licks a toad?

Answer

In Queensland, Australia, dogs have been licking poisonous, sweaty secretions from the backs of cane toads, resulting in copious drool, tremors, retching and even death. In 2014, the Huffington Post reported a similar case of poisoning in Florida.

Veterinarians speculate that canines may develop a taste for the poison with effects that are similar to a narcotic "high." One member of the University of Queensland's School of Veterinary Science who has treated the same dog several times in the course of a year for toad poisoning states that it is impossible to determine if a dog is intoxicated. Owners who suspect that their canine is poisoned should rinse the dog's mouth with water and contact a veterinarian.
