What do I do if my pet ingests marijuana?

We recommend that you get to your veterinarian as soon as possible. If you’re able to act within 30 minutes of the time of ingestion, the vet may induce vomiting to remove as much of the material as possible before absorption. This greatly reduces the potential for a harmful reaction. Owners should not attempt to make dogs vomit, since complications such as choking and aspiration could occur. Additional treatments that may be administered include IV fluids and oral activated charcoal, which can help absorb the cannabis in your pet’s system. With appropriate, intervention by a veterinarian, cannabis toxicity is almost never fatal and long-term side effects are extremely rare.
