Colorado Vets Report — Fido and Friends are Getting Stoned and the Numbers are Increasing

Initially you might laugh at the thought because you’ve wondered what your dog would be like on pot or maybe just because its time for your afternoon bag of Doritos and mega sized Mountain Dew. Either way Colorado vets are seeing the numbers of stoned pets increase.

Stoned Dog Digital Vision

According to a Colorado State University study, since the legalization of Marijuana in Colorado there have been more cases of cannabis toxicity in dog’s and cat’s. The pets are ingesting large amounts of THC, the chemical responsible for most of Marijuana’s psychological effects. The most common way your pets are being exposed to THC is through edibles, such as cookies or brownies made with THC oil or butter.

How do you know if your pet has ingested THC? Of course the obvious answer would be another question for starters, Has your pet been exposed to Marijuana? If you don’t know or the answer is yes your pet will exhibit signs much like a human that is stoned. Your pet will be essentially be lethargic, more so if you already have a lazy dog. It’s important to keep an eye on them if you suspect cannabis toxicity is to assure they aren’t vomiting or choking, you may even want to take them to the vet.

The study showed a four-fold increase in Colorado toxicity cases in the last five years.
