Emergency Procedure for Mushroom Poisonings

If your dog should ever eat a poisonous mushroom, rush them to the vet and refer them to this story.

The gist of the matter is this: get the vet to insert a thin needle into your dog's gall bladder and drain the poison. If your dog is as lucky as Kasey from Richmond, california, on who this procedure was performed, all should be fine.

Better yet--keep the mushrooms out of your backyard by removing them at the root.
But if you happen to ingest the same poisonous mushroom, the same procedure should work for you.
