Dogs and mushrooms ?

7 posts in this topic

We really had a weird experience on Saturday with our 1 yr old lab. We were fishing on the river by Red Wing and while the dog was fine all morning, when we took him to shore the second time my son saw him get into something by a tree.

Within 10 minutes he was staggering in the boat and almost fell down. He also had a bobbing motion to his head. We took him to shore again (different area) and he seemed fine. Back in the boat and again he almost fell over and had a weird side to side motion.

We headed home thinking that he had gotten into something toxic and when we stopped to check on him on the road he wouldn't even get out of his kennel and just looked at us like he was in pain.

We went to the emergency hospital in AV and they wanted to give him Xrays etc. Something about a how he was hunched over and that he could have been injured jumping into the boat. (actually made me feel guilty like I had beaten him or something)

No diagnosis as there was no chunks of anything in his vomit but they gave him Morphine and wanted to keep him overnight. We kept him home last night and today he is running around like a wild man--no need for the pain Meds that they gave him !!

Any ideas ? My wife thinks inner ear or that he got boatsick,

I am leaning on the mushroom theory as he has been in a boat since he was 8 wks old. Either way, the checkbook is lighter today.

That is pretty weird, but glad everything is OK.

We stopped the Meds as he was still vomiting every so often. No problems since !!

Yea that is so hard to keep our buds from doing that stuff, I catch my dogs trying to eat all kinds of stuff. I say they are worse to keep track of than kids. Hope things have worked out for your dog.

My male lab is a garbage can. He eats anything that looks or smells like it could taste good.

Probably some shrooms. Just needed to work their way out of his system.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
