The side of her mouth looked foamy and at first I thought she maybe had a rawhide stuck in her teeth. I wiped her mouth and found that there was nothing in her mouth but foam. We couldn’t get her to drink any water and the foam just kept coming. Jaime was getting worried and had me call the emergency number for the vet. I called their service and started to get ready in case we had to take her to the vet. I came back downstairs in about two minutes and Jaime said that Skye was starting to drink some water. The vet called back about then and I told her what had happened, and that Skye seemed to be getting better. The vet told us that what most likely happened was Skye had gotten a hold of a frog. Now many of you probably know that part of a frog or toad’s defense against animals that may try to eat them is they release a bitter liquid to make the animal drop them. I guess Skye may not have minded the taste and kept playing with it enough so that she got quite a dose, and that caused her to foam up a lot. When she was back to normal a few minutes later she ate and drank quite a lot of food and water. I guess she was finally trying to get that taste out of her mouth.
It was quite a scare for a few minutes as all sorts of ideas like seizures went through our minds. In the end it was nothing more than a playful frog. If we had tried to bring them in the house 15 minutes later we may never have known it happened.
