Pug ill after walk.
A dog owner from Australia warned other pet parents in her area. According to Kasey Lee, her pug named Riley suddenly fell ill after consuming feces that contained “magic mushrooms” while on a walk.
Recently, Kasey and Riley were in Paradise Point, enjoying some fresh air. This is a coastal suburb located in Gold Coast, Queensland. Suddenly, Kasey saw Riley having stomach problems.
Kasey believes that Riley had eaten feces that had “magic mushrooms.” This is a type of wild mushroom that has hallucinogenic once consumed. Riley’s condition was so bad that the poor pup had to stay at the emergency vet overnight.

Kasey shared the story in the Paradise Point Facebook group for her to help raise awareness for other pet owners. On the post, Kasey explained that they were at the beach the day before, and Riley was strolling off of her leash. That was probably when the pup ate human feces that had the magic mushrooms.
Riley had a terrible gastro. Because of the toxin of the magic mushrooms, Riley could hardly stand up straight. She was constantly wobbling and shaking too. Kasey brought Riley to the vet, where she underwent treatment overnight to bind the toxin and take it out of the pup’s system.
Many commenters sympathized with Kasey and expressed their best wishes for her dog. Others shared Kasey’s frustration about the incident too. In response, Kasey explained how she figured out what had happened.
According to Kasey, Riley had all of the symptoms of marijuana. However, because the pup’s urine test was negative, the vet said that it is most likely magic mushrooms. The signs of these two are the same, but the latter does not show in the test.
Kasey recalled chasing after Riley and even jokingly said that for a “slow fat breed,” the pugs are the fastest animals on the planet whenever they have something inside their mouth that she shouldn’t. Thankfully, Riley is doing so much better now. Things are finally back to normal.
