Absolutely correct, by my understanding. I was thinking she'd gotten into it/ it had gotten into her, again. I'll think on it some more, but I'm m sure there must be something that can bind with it in her bloodstream or at least interrupt it, in her nervous system. Can you get her some raw oysters? The selenium in them is a pretty powerful antioxidant (among other benefits, in the heart, lungs, and brain) and might help clear some of it out. Oysters have an incredible amount, but other things, like halibut and sardines have a decent amount, too. I obviously can't promise anything, but, maybe it could help.

In fact, in this case, that can might not be a bad idea, because the canning would kill off any parasites, and you wouldn't need to wait for freezing them, to kill 'em. In fact, frozen raw oysters might be just what you need, for the same reason, and should be less expensive than fresh, to boot.

Personally, I'd probably not force it on her, but I can't speak to the wisdom of that, other than following her instincts. I think you mentioned some other mushrooms, but can't recall which. I know reishi has some amazing immune boosting and I believe autistic benefits that might help her. If she's getting plenty of liver, and seems to be making progress, I wouldn't force the oysters, either. Just remember that once this is all over, to go back to her normal, smaller amount of liver. Keep us posted...

It is eerily similar to what happened to my little friend Ethel except the culprit there was something called tremorgenic mycotoxins. http://riverroadveterinary.com/compost-toxicity-in-dogs/, it was awful but she pulled through and was her old self for two years when she passed away suddenly from kidney failure. She was 14, and seemed happy and healthy, we will never know if it was a residual effect of the toxin.
