    Glad it was a good outcome (or an outcome better than parvo at least!). Hope your friends pup makes a full recovery! How awful

    When we bought Molly home from the shelter, she had kennel cough but wasn't showing any signs, she had been vaccinated but either caught it before the vaccinations kicked in or they didn't work. My friend came over on the 2nd day we had her, when she still seemed healthy, and gave her lots of cuddles. It wasn't until the next day that she started showing signs and a few days later my friend's dog came down with KC too- I felt so awful and offered to pay some of her vet fees but thankfully she was understanding and we were both just grateful that it wasn't something worse like parvo!

    Thank dog it wasnt the dreaded parvo...congrats on having your dog fully immunised !!!

    For what its worth....when Scooby ate the canetoad he never went near another one so hopefully she realises they dont go down the hatch to well..

    I've been very lucky with my guys....they dont go anywhere near toads even when they jump right in front of them !! (touchwood). Hope she's back to 100% very soon !!

    'kerriek_99' - I am also really really pleased that you now have answers to your worries and queries/questions from your vet.

    I am also really pleased that you as a responsible owner makes sure that your pup is up to date with the necessary vaccines that are required. This information was missing from your initial query - hence my response.

    As for training the pup to not go and do something like this again - the 'leave it' command is a good one to have in your training box.

    When pups first come to me - this is the command they hear the most. They get to think that I have ears and eyes everywhere ! Toads where a big problem for me years ago. But after washing out said pup's mouth with a hose to get rid of all the poison a couple of times - the connection was finally made !

    Good Luck and I hope that Gigha gets over this very quickly!

    BTW - $99 - well spent for peace of mind !

    Thanks guys, she still isnt eating...drinking heaps and lazing around but no eating yet. Hopefully she will feel like it tomorrow. I am sure she wont starve to death in 2 days. The nausea tablets I paid $50 for obviously aren't quiet that good

    Rileyj, I did say in my first post that Gigha is fully immunized, my friends pup was not. IMO if you cant afford to immunize or desex then you cant afford a pet!!

    We do use 'leave it' and most times it works but this time it wasn't and I was not quick enough! I shall have to brush up on my leaping to small amphibians distress moves.

    'kerriek_99' - sorry - I did miss that in your post ! But - All the other words are still appropriate ?

    If she is still not eating anything - but is drinking well - I would suspect that she may also have a bit of a sore throat as well - not necessarily the anti-nausea tablets not working.

    Has she seemed interested in any food at all ?

    When Riley had tonsillitis - all I did was get the blender out and made all sorts of 'smoothies' for the pup. Just a few examples - Banana with ice cream, vegetables and mince, mince with some dry, fish with vegetables and/or dry.

    As he is usually fed twice a day - I just made the meals much smaller over 4 times a day. The beauty of the blender is as he got better the length of time the blender had to be on became less.

    Good Luck !

    She has eaten a few biscuits today, not her normal food (vets all natural and mince) as I have put out 2 bowls of that with her lactose free milk and she hasnt touched it and well its a tad expensive to keep throwing over the fence. It is really soft so guess she is just wary about eating anything... I gave her a bone icy pole (I freeze them in ice cream containers of water) and she licked it all down but as yet has not touched the bone. I figured when she does then she is ready to eat again. It feels like ages since she ate but it was Friday morning and I am sure she wont quiet starve to death in 2 days....

    Hopefully she will pick up tomorrow.

    'kerriek_99' - please back to the vet to sort this out !

    Dogs will not naturally stop eating - there has to be a very serious reason for it. She has already been treated by your vet - anti-nausea tablets - and I am really surprised an antibiotic was also not prescribed.

    Hoping that you get to the bottom of this and your pup gets better soon.

    Could you tell if she has passed the frog in her poo yet? No, she won't starve to death in a few days. Could you tempt her with a raw egg?

    Misha normally has VAN & roo mince, but isn't mad about it and on the rare occasions that she is a bit off colour she won't eat it at all.

    I hope she recovers soon.
    Just as an aside..
    I usually ring the vet before I take mine in to see if they have been treating any parvo cases lately as that is a prime place for picking it up too.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
