Cane toads (also known as bufo toads) can kill dogs. And in South Florida, cane toads are simply everywhere... including your yard.
Dogs often chase or try to "play" with cane toads; they may lick, nose-nudge or pick up cane toads in their mouth. This exposes your pet to a rapid-acting toxin is then absorbed by the mem-branes in the dog’s mouth, causing symptoms ranging in severity from drooling, head-shaking and crying... to loss of coordination, convulsions and death.
Take action to help avoid costly vet visits or even the loss of your pet. Toad Busters will make your yard safer with its cane toad removal service and barrier fence installation.
