Customer Question

If an 85 pund golden retriever consumed 175 mg of THC

While not lethal (the LD50 - the dose that killed 50% of rats - is 300 mg/lb) 175 mg is likely to cause ataxia ("drunken sailor"), central nervous system depression, tremors, and vomiting within 30 minutes of ingestion. If your golden has ingested the THC within 30 minutes and is stable, please induce vomiting with 45 mL (3 measuring tablespoons) of 3% hydrogen peroxide given with a small poultry baster placed between your dog's cheek teeth and cheek. Your dog should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, repeat the dose.
