What To Do If Your Dog Eats Your Weed
Anyone who has spent any significant time around dogs knows that some of our less obedient furry friends often like to “taste” food that they are able to get at from the table, kitchen counter or even our laps and run off to devour their stolen snack before they get into trouble.
Unfortunately, the same can happen with marijuana flower and related products. This is especially of concern when it comes to edibles due to the higher concentration of marijuana involved. So what does one do when their beloved doggo raids their weed stash?
Go to a Vet or Not?
If your dog has ingested cannabis, there are a few key things to know when considering if you should take them to the vet. Remember, vets are not mandated reporters and they’re not going to call the police. So, if you feel you need to take your dog to the vet you should absolutely do so.
How Much Marijuana Did Your Dog Eat?
If your dog ate your entire 1000 mg chocolate bar, it’s definitely time to go to the vet. A cookie or two? It depends on a few things like the size and breed of your dog. In cases where your dog eats only a small amount of cannabis (10 mg and under), just keep an eye on them and things will most likely be fine.
If you were about to roll a joint and she licked it all off the plate, you’re probably okay staying home as well since cannabis that is not decarboxylated will produce less effects.
While not necessarily life threatening in most cases, owners should be very careful about making sure that their pets are not able to access their marijuana in order to avoid any potential harm from coming to them.
