Does Your Dog Like Getting High? – Canine Cannabis Intoxication on the Rise at Vet’s Offices

In a recent study, researchers surveyed 251 veterinarians in Canada and the United States and analyzed the 2021 data to gauge the incidence and effects of marijuana toxicosis. Of the 283 reported cases, 226 (80%) were of dogs suffering from poisoning. The report’s authors noted that most poisonings happened when pets ingested cannabis edibles in their owners’ absence. Dr. Khokhar added that pets consumed cannabis through other oral means, such as discarded joints, human feces, cannabis-infused butter or oil, and even compost.
