Default My dog caught a mole....

So I am curious. My dog caught a mole. And although he didn't kill it or eat it, it did have puncture wounds on it. My dog is up to date with all his shots, should I be concerned with my dog catching a disease or getting sick?

No, you'll be o.k. I used to have a mutt when I was a kid that would do that. Sit by the hole for a long time then catch it.

I'm so glad.

How about if he catches a bird?

And is this normal behavior? Because he likes messing with the massive amounts of frogs we have too.

I know some frogs and toads can be poisonous to dogs, but I do not remember which kinds.

Hmmmmmm, these are your typical green frogs, that live by a lake. They all are the same. I'm not saying they couldn't be posionous. Maybe I should talk to the vet about it.

I really only heard about it when I was living in Florida. We have the Cane toads down there that make you hallucinate and other weird shit haha. I am not sure where you live but yours may not be bothersome at all.

Yeah, I never heard of any poisonous frogs or toads around here, but you never do know. I live in NJ.

Sometimes dogs can get intestinal parasites from catching wild critters & birds. Birds carry coccidia. One of my dogs got coccidia from licking bird poop off the sidewalk, gross!Of course fleas are always a concern also. Just keep an eye on his stools if they look loose take one into the vet to be tested. I would check a stool every 6 months ,even if they look normal, just to be safe since your boy is a hunter. :-)

I think on most visits we have his stool checked. A month or two ago my dog had the poops, and the vet did bring up that he could have ingested bird poop. She did tests, but it came back normal, she still gave him antibiotics just in case. The poops cleared up 2 days later.

This will gross you out!! Years ago, my female (Blue 1994-2004) pounced on and ate a frog in our yard before I could blink. She seemed fine. We had planned to bathe her later that day, and in the bathtub she got sudden a case of explosive diarrhea and the whole frog came out albeit in a few pieces. Aside from the major cleanup job (for us), there were no further side effects, next BM was perfectly normal (and no frog parts!!).

We did get her checked out, with fecal tests, all negative, but I keep a very close eye out for frogs since then!
