Watch out for Colorado River Toads!

Posted in Uncategorized

It’s monsoon season in Arizona, so keep an eye out for Colorado River Toads, aka Sonoran Desert Toads. These toads have smooth, leathery skin that is olive green or mottled brown in color, yellow eyes, and several glands that produce toxins. Dogs that bite Colorado River Toads can suffer paralysis or even death.

If your dog comes into contact with a Colorado River toad or you suspect your pet has been exposed to the toad’s poison, you’ll need to take immediate action.
