Hi. My name is***** you for your question. Ok. Marijuana ingestion is something that is happening more - all the states that are legalizing it and the medicinal use of it. It was then bound to increase the number of cases we see as veterinarians. For the most part, it causes sedation, ataxia and nothing super serious unless large ingestions have happened. Mostly they are treated with time. If they get very depressed and start to have issues with respirations, then intervention by a veterinarian is needed. At this time, decontamination isn't possible so it is purely supportive care.
