Hi I am Dr. Brian. How long ago did your dog ingest the marijuana and how much was ingested? How much does your dog weigh?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
about a hour ago not sure how much and she only weights 3lbs
Expert:  Dr. Brian M. replied 6 years ago.
Since it has been longer than 30 min and clinical signs have already started it could be very dangerous to induce vomiting at this point as your dog may aspirate the vomit. This type of ingestion can be very dangerous and your dog needs to have activated charcoal given and even potentially IV fluids and respiratory support. You need to get your dog to a vet now.
