Cane Toads Killing Dogs

Dogs and cane toads don't mix well.

Mike and Vicki Milton's west highland terrier Wallace was rushed to the clinic after he was found with a toad in his mouth at their Knuckey Lagoon home on Sunday night.

Dr Monaghan said when the five-year-old arrived he was in a "bad way'' and they did not hold much hope of him surviving.

She said his mouth was clamped shut, he was having seizures and his eyes were flickering.

They've had 5 cases recently in the NW Territories in Australia.
