Fiona’s Mushroom Misfortune

“I came home from training classes with two of my German Shepherds and another, Fiona, was laying in the hallway. I noticed Fiona didn’t get up as she usually would when we passed. She was lethargic and glassy-eyed with a very high heart rate. Apparently, Fiona had gotten into some mushroom residue left from when the lawn was mowed earlier in the day. I rushed her to the emergency veterinary hospital immediately.  She ended up vomiting a tremendous amount of grass and mushroom clumps, and her liver enzymes were very high. She returned to her normal self after a couple of days of IV therapy and medication.” –Deacon W., Bakersfield, CA

Rhys Snacked on Joint Supplements

“We left the house, and our dog Rhys got hold of a brand new, 200-count tub of joint supplements. He ripped off the outer plastic cover, opened the lid, dragged it through the doggie door and devoured it in the yard. Luckily, we returned in time to stop him from consuming all of it. We went straight to our veterinarian’s office, where they called poison control. They also performed two liver profiles and induced vomiting.. We now make sure to doggie-proof the house when we leave.” – Madeline D., Fort Collins, CO
