Mushroom Toxicity

Warm, wet weather is ideal for mushroom development. When environmental conditions are right, mushrooms can pop up overnight. It is not only in the outdoors we need to worry about mushrooms, the kitchen is a prime place for mushrooms too! Dogs are natural explorers and scavengers so they are at highest risk of mushroom toxicity.


When ingested, mushrooms can cause illness within 2-24 hours.

Common signs of mushroom toxicity:

- vomiting

- diarrhoea

- abdominal pain

- jaundice

- liver failure

- death
