Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Bruce. Welcome to Just Answer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply ASAP.
How long ago did he eat the THC macaroons? How many did he eat? How is he acting at this point? Does he have any other health issues?
Thank you for that information. With the legalization of marijuana through certain states as far as recreational and medicinal use, these situations are coming up more often. Most of the time with THC ingestion, the cases are treated symptomatically based on their signs. Most just get very tired and stuporous. Those more critical ones are the ones that get comatose and these are the ones that need veterinary care as they could need ventilatory support. That is good that he's not overly sedated at this time and it would seem as far as the THC situation to be out past when it should be at its most potent. As far as the vomiting, that could be due to the macaroons themselves being irritating to the stomach. Hopefully here today he's back to eating and drinking and the nausea has resolved. For him at this point, keeping him in a quiet area for rest would seem like a good idea unless the vomiting continues.
