Over the past several years, there has been a 400% increase in marijuana cases involving pets across the US. Listen, accidents happen. Curious pets get into things they’re not supposed to all of the time. However, it’s important to be cautious, especially when it comes to marijuana.
Medicated edibles that are high in THC concentrations are the most dangerous to your dog, especially with chocolate or raisin cookies. (If that’s the case be sure to call poison control or go straight to an emergency animal clinic).
It is important to note that humans and animals do not react the same way to marijuana!
So, can marijuana intake kill your dog? Technically, yes it can. Keep in mind that the effects of marijuana will likely be more intense and last much longer for dogs; they have a lot more cannabinoid receptors in their brain than humans.
