Dog ends up in coma after a walk in Blackfalds

Dog finds a baggie that likely contained drugs

A husky dog lapsed into a coma after licking a baggie that likely had contained drugs.

A GoFundMe fundraiser, organized by Zoey Mcdonald of Blackfalds, has been set up to raise $2,000 to help pay the cost of veterinary care.

The owner of five-year-old Lilac said on the site that Lilac came into contact with the baggie while on a walk around Blackfalds a couple of nights ago.

“I pulled her away but I thought nothing of it, unfortunately the worst happened it was a drug baggy and caused my dog to started having seizures,” the owner said.

She was rushed to the veterinarian at about 12:30 a.m. and fell into a coma near 4 a.m.

As of Monday morning, $345 had been raised through the online fundraiser.
