What are the Treatment options?
Treatment for Bufo toad toxicosis revolves around the principal “dilution is the solution to pollution”. Intravenous fluid therapy, gastroprotectants, and anti-nausea medications are the mainstay, along with treatment of secondary effects if necessary (control seizures, decrease heart rate as indicated). Patients with Bufo toad toxicosis have a good prognosis with supportive and symptomatic therapies when veterinary care is provided immediately after exposure.
