I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Because of the difficulty in differentiating between toxic and nontoxic mushrooms, any ingestion of unidentifed mushrooms by dogs should prompt decontamination procedures (emesis, activated charcoal, etc.). There are seven main symptom-related classifications of mushrooms - many of which can cause the symptoms you've mentioned. May I have an update on your son's dog, please?
