Marijuana 💨 ⁣

Sooooo your dog ate weed.⁣

First, let’s get this out of the way right off the bat. Your vet does 👏🏼 not 👏🏼care.⁣

Second. We ALWAYS know. 😏⁣

There is no sense in denying it. Don’t make up some dumbass story, and stop blaming your neighbors. It’s a whole lot easier and faster to just be upfront about what is going on.⁣

Marijuana toxicity is extremely common in household pets these days. A tiny amount can cause a whole host of symptoms, and here are the most common:⁣

🌱 Unable to stand/walk in a straight line⁣
🌱 Dribbling urine/having accidents⁣
🌱 Hyperreflexive around the head (flinching HARD when a hand comes toward their face)⁣
🌱 Nausea/drooling/vomiting⁣
🌱 Low heart rate/body temperature⁣
🌱 Overall appearing like they’re high as a kite⁣

Luckily life threatening marijuana toxicity is rare, and the majority of pets who ingest THC bounce back quickly with a night of hospitalization and fluids, along with lots of treats, a dark room, and some Pink Floyd. 😉⁣

In large amounts marijuana can cause coma and even death, so seeking veterinary attention is always recommended. Also, I tell owners constantly that if your pet is exhibiting these symptoms and it’s NOT marijuana, then I’m going to be really worried. So let’s all be honest here, and save yourself some money digging for a diagnosis when we already know what’s going on.⁣

Oh and parents, if you bring your teenager with you to the appointment and your vet asks you about marijuana? Please take a moment to excuse yourself to the restroom so we can appropriately grill the 17 year old smirking in the corner. You may not know there’s weed in your house, but I guarantee sweet little Ryan does. 🙃

As the holiday season is winding down, there is still plenty of trouble our pets can find themselves in.

With veterinary medicine continuing to see record-breaking case numbers across the country, BluePearl has created a tip sheet if you do find yourself seeking emergency veterinary care.

Be safe. Be careful. Be prepared... and always call ahead before arriving to our emergency rooms.
