Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

It would be best to have her treated by a veterinarian as she may well have mushroom toxicity. You can learn more here:

Symptoms can vary greatly from just vomiting and diarrhea to seizures, coma and death. If you have another mushroom in your yard that looks like the one she ate, take it with you to the vet's office to help identify what variety it is.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
