Default Frog

We saw a frog this morning. We saw it hop away from us in the dead leaves. Harry gave chase. I figured out it was a frog but allowed him to continue to chase as to fulfil his curious mind to the point of nudging with his nose. I think he may have licked it. He sneezed

Came home. Bit of foaming round mouth. Ate breakfast no problem but definitely bit subdued. No morning bouncing / playing.

I assume the frog got defensive and some horrible 'poison' on the skin. He did not eat the frog. He be okay, right?

I think it depends on the type of frog.

It depends on the frog. I believe you do have a couple poisonous frogs in Singapore, but don't recall any being deadly (I like amphibians). Could it have been a toad instead?

Here is a website of the frogs you have. Do you know what it looked like?

Are you sure it wasn't a toad? A lot of toads and frogs secrete a deterrent on their skin that will provoke this reaction to predators (to make a long story short), and it will most likely be okay. I would perhaps call your local poison control and describe the 'frog' that you saw, or try to google image search (although this will be very difficult since many different types of frogs look very similar).

I think everything will be fine, my rottie did this dozens of times to different toads (none of which she ate, probably because they must taste disgusting).

We have buffo toads in Florida which are very poisonous. I am constantly on the hunt for them and it is the one animal that we kill. Dogs have died from licking them, sometimes before even getting to the vet. If someone experiences anything like this, wash the dog's mouth out with water immediately and then head to the vet. They are so scary.

Wow I am glad we don't have any of those in Ohio. Just run of the mill toads that won't hurt anything.

Harry lives. In fact he continues to live as a very bouncy puppy. It had no affect on him besides the initial reaction.

I checked out the pictures online and admit most of the frogs/toads look the same to me!

I asked in the office and there are poisonous frogs/toads here. My colleague also said more likely to be a toad. She advised to wash out his mouth.

Thanks for all your thoughts
