    Default Poisonous Mushroom

    Just got back from an emergency visit to our vet. Lulu consumed what appears to of been a poisonous mushroom in our back yard. Lulu began to vomit and have diarrhea almost instantly. The vet gave her a shot of some kind and advised Kaopectate and some activated charcoal.
    Here is hoping it works.
    Vet did not seem to overly concerned. She did say that her vomiting right away is actually a good sign.

    Wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them?

    No, we don't have that kind in our yard, mostly toad stools and they don't really mess with em. Are you near the woods?

    Can you post a pic? We get them sometimes, and we try to pick them as we see them, but you never know...

    We had them when we lived in Central Oregon surrounded by USFS and the Deschutes River. They are called death caps, helmet shaped and are spotted. As I remember, they were white with brown spots. Harley ate one once and we got him right in to the vet for a forced puke and the mushroom came up. The vet said they could be fatal. We had a rescue cow dog at the time who would pick them and leave them on rocks. We had 5 acres and there was no way we could find them all. No other of our dogs ever ate them.

    How scary! Our back yard is very shaded and is also susceptible to some sort of ugly, weird looking, black inverted mushrooms. I try to make sure to pull them up daily before Tank does, but they do worry me. I'd love to find a way to get rid of them. So glad your baby is okay!
