Toads and cats

It may be useful to know that toads do have a venom that they can secrete when they feel threatened. If a cat licks or bites a toad, they can ingest the venom from the toad's glands on their back. They can then start to salivate a lot and become nauseous and tired.

What should I do?

  • Keep your cat under observation

  • Rinse out its mouth as soon as possible

  • Check the mouth for signs of injury

  • Look for material stuck between the teeth

Do I need to see a vet?

Usually this condition is harmless and will pass in a few hours to a day. If the cat is not severely affected, you may want to wait before visiting the vet. Keep an eye on your cat and consult a vet if your cat's general condition deteriorates significantly.
