My 7 pound dog ate 5 marijuana gummies about 4 hours ago

Customer Question

My 7 pound dog ate 5 marijuana gummies about 4 hours ago each containing 10mg of thc which would be 50mg which is 0.05 grams. She has been lethargic and wobbling alot when she walks, but she has mostly been laying down. She is alert to me calling her name, but she wont eat or drink anything. Will she be okay?

How old is she?

And you're positive she only ate 5 of them?

Has she done any vomiting?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
She is 8 months old, and yes, pretty sure she ate 5, and she has only vomited one time

Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Marijuana is toxic to your dog, and unfortunately due to the amount of time that has passed since she ingested it, inducing vomiting won't do any good. The marijuana has already been absorbed into her system.

There is more information on marijuana ingestion here:

Please do not be afraid to see a vet ASAP. Vets hear this all the time and do not call the police, as they are only concerned with getting your little girl well again. IF you live in a state where marijuana is legal, then you really have nothing to be concerned about.

If possible...take the packaging with you so that they can see exactly what the ingredients are, since there are other things that are toxic such as xylitol.

I hope this helps!!

Hi Amanda,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Takata. How is everything going?
