While marijuana use can be a pleasurable experience for many people, it can be dangerous for dogs. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive substance in marijuana that produces a high for humans, is toxic to dogs, and can cause vomiting, incoordination, depression, sleepiness or excitation, low blood pressure, low body temperature and seizures. Death is rare, but there have been a cases reported.
If your dog has joined you by helping themselves to your stash, please call your local veterinarian or poison control for guidance, if dog is showing unusual symptoms.
