My friend had this jar that didnt grow any mycelium after 6 weeks. It smelled like vanilla/alcohol put together. There wasnt any contam, like a big blotch in the jar, but it really smelled (after wrapping it in three plastic bags, you could still smell it) The brf had kinda "separated" and it looked outlined in black. (I guess that was the contam)
So anyways, she BURIED the contaminated jar's contents in her backyard. What an idiot, because she has a DOG who dug it up.
So now she's not sure if the dog ate any, but she wants to know if this particular contam is deadly/causes illness?
Please, if you know what type of contam this is juding by what I just told you, respond immediately! She doesn't want her cute puppy-dog to die...
Sounds like a bacterial contam. The dog may get sick from the toxins that the bacteria may have excreted, but he may not. If the dog begins vomitting more then once a day then take him to the vet and tell them he ate a bowl of spoiled rice that fell off the counter (Definately don't tell them the whole truth). Odds are the dog will be fine. Dogs are more resistant than humans to things they eat. But if he gets sick take him to the vet immediately, no need to risk the poor pup's life.
