Monsoon in AZ can be dangerous for your dogs. I love the change of weather, but the monsoons attract toads to our yards in the evenings anywhere we have grass or water. Some of these toads are deadly to the dogs. One lick can be fatal from the toxic substance on the toads backs. Many dogs do not make in time to the vet. We were able to save our dog last year by flushing her mouth, face and head with water for an hour after she picked a toad up in her mouth. You will know if your furbaby got to a toad because one of the 1st signs is uncontrollable foaming at the mouth. Enjoy the storms, but protect your dogs!
