Customer Question

my dog MIGHT have just eaten a mushroom in the yard. Can we wait to see if any signs show up, or is this an emergency?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Roxie, and she is about 11 yrs old. She is a rescue dog, so age is unknown for sure.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Roxie?
Customer: No. She seems healthy, but old and perhaps hard of hearing. I have found mushrooms in our yard several times this summer, and even though she has been out there with me, she has never shown an interest in them.

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’m happy to help with your concerns regarding Roxie.

I recommend inducing Roxi to vomit. Do you have hydrogen peroxide?

How much does she weigh? I will give you the dose of peroxide needed.

Mushrooms can have toxic effects on dogs and I recommend inducing Roxie to vomit.

Please let me know how much she weighs and I'm here to talk you through the induction process.
