I am sorry to hear you are worried about Ele. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How long ago did she eat the mushroom? Many mushrooms are not toxic, but of course some are very toxic. It can be very hard to identify mushrooms to know which is which. If this happened less than an hour ago and you are worried it could be toxic, you can try to get her to vomit by giving her hydrogen peroxide. How much does she weigh? You have to be careful; too much peroxide can be dangerous as well.

How is Ele doing? Most of the time dogs eat mushrooms and are fine. Watch for vomiting and diarrhea, or for her not to want to eat.

Let me know what else I can help with or answer....
