Advice for dealing with Cane Toads (aka Bufo or Marine or Giant Toad)
First be sure you are dealing with a Cane Toad, and not a native Southern Toad.
Turn off outside lights at night that attract insects, which attract Cane Toads.
Do not leave bowls of pet food out at night—Cane Toads may learn there is a free meal at your back door.
Do not leave dogs unattended outdoors at dawn, dusk, or at night when Cane Toads are most active.
Remove debris piles in your yard where Cane Toads may seek shelter during the day.
Remove any Cane Toad eggs (laid in long strings) and tadpoles (small and black colored) from ornamental ponds.
If your pet comes in contact with a Cane toad be sure to rinse their mouth by tilting their nose downward and rinsing their mouth with water generously, then make sure to head directly to your veterinarian.
Hi, my name is Terry. I manage this website for my furbaby, Daisy. When I first became interested in the Shichons, I found it was difficult to get information on them. A few sites, I am using for information are excellent sources. Then, I moved on to compile and share more information on choosing a good breeder, grooming, health, behavior, training and much more. I hope you enjoy this site and find it helpful. I am NOT promoting any information, just sharing. You and your vet know what is best for your baby.
