Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. Any wild mushroom should be considered a serious toxicity issue, especially when accompanied by her symptoms. They could be very toxic to the liver or even cause a lot of abdominal pain from severe gastrointestinal or pancreatic inflammation. My recommendation at this point would be to get her to your vet ASAP for an exam and blood work. It sounds like she needs to be put on fluid therapy and giving anti-nausea medication at the very least. Please let me know if you have any other question or concerns. Hope this helps.
