A young chocolate lab succumbed to illness after consuming unidentified mushrooms.
The unnamed puppy was brought into the VCA Canada Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital and surrendered to the Victoria Humane Society’s care by the owner.
The puppy required an emergency blood transfusion, and was under the care of Dr. Kelsey Havens.
On Thursday morning, however, the pup passed away.
“Times like this are really hard for us, but when we see how many of you amazing people are behind us in taking the chance on one little puppy it makes it easier. Thank-you again,” wrote the Victoria Humane Society on a Facebook post.
