Customer Question

My 6 month old puppy has eaten wild mushrooms. When I noticed the stalk in her mouth, I took it away, but there is no telling how much she ingested. She then threw up a lot of food and some bits of mushrooms. I saw that a treatment is inducing vomiting, but should I be taking more action? Should I make the middle of the night quest for activated charcoal? She is still crying but when I go to her, she wags her tail and acts like its a cry for my attention.
