If you are talking about a marajuana joint, then my best recommendation would be to have your dog evaluated by a veterinarian depending on her size. If she is small, a single joint may be enough to be a significant toxicity. If she is larger, then it may only make her sick but not cause long term issues for her. We can see lethargy, vomiting, seizures, ataxic (walking like she is drunk) or a tendency to startle easily while she is under the influence of marajuana. If it has been several hours and she is accent fine, then I recommend continuing to monitor her for the above signs and taking her in to see a vet if she has any of the above issues. If she s currently showing any of thee issues, then I recommend taking her to the nearest emergency clinic for evaluation and proper treatment. Does this answer your question tonight?
