Mushrooms

Hi All,
I would like feedback on your experiences with Havs eating mushrooms. I am meticulous about picking them out of my yard. So far, Bodie doesn't seem interested in them, only sticks. My previous dog (a Cairn terrier) never bothered them, but I have a neighbor who has always had Shiz Tsu and they LOVE them and are always eating them. I will continue to check the yard daily, but was just wondering if Havs seem to like mushrooms or not. I'm so paranoid!!

I would avoid as much as possible . I pick them out of the lawn even though Molly has never touched them. One thing I've learmed is that you shouldn't try to identify them as it takes an expert. Some can kill you in minutes. here's more Mushroom Poisoning in Your Pets

Thank you! I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and hope Bodie doesn't show any interest in them.

I would be very worried about a dog that ate a mushroom. We also have mushrooms in our yard. Willow hasn't shown any interest in them. However, so likes to chew on grass clumps left over from the lawnmower and I worry that there could be a ground up mushroom mixed in with that. I try to eliminate mushrooms in the yard when I see them. Of course I try to keep her from eating grass clumps too but I'm not always fast enough.

I gather mushrooms with the pooper scooper as well as hickory nuts and acorns. The squirrels love to drop partially opened hickory nuts which the dogs want to chew on. I am afraid of broken teeth. Also since they don't digest well the hickory nut shells tend to make a return visit around 3:00 am! Better to diligently scoop and dispose.
