A week-old puppy, Hazel, tragically died in Victoria Thursday morning after eating what is suspected to be death cap mushrooms. The purebred chocolate lab was surrendered to the Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital by its owners on Wednesday afternoon after signs of illness began to show. According to the Victoria Humane Society, the animal hospital contacted them to see if they would be willing to fund the puppy's medical treatments. The puppy was then given blood transfusions to help flush its system of toxins on Wednesday afternoon. Sadly, despite the expert care from veterinarians, he passed away early Thursday morning. According to Stone, the family that surrendered the puppy to the veterinary hospital believed that it had eaten death cap mushrooms, a toxic fungus that is deadly to both animals and humans and is occasionally found on Vancouver Island. In July , death caps were spotted in the Uplands and Cedar Hill neighborhoods, and in a three-year-old boy died after eating a death cap he found in downtown Victoria. If it's eating mushrooms at all I'd take it in to get its stomach pumped.
