My Rhodesian ridgeback may have been exposed to a very small

Customer Question
amount of crystal meth, he...
My Rhodesian ridgeback may have been exposed to a very small amount of crystal meth, he first started coughing almost like kennel cough, now he has diarrhea and is very clingy, only behavior change is he is more interested in his sister he's intact and she is not, I show him he's never been sick a day in his life, the person who was suppose to help me take care of dogs while I travel turned out to have pot and yesterday while cleaning his room I found a meth kit my dog brought me a big plastic bag with a very small amount of a crystal substance but he also was very courious about the tubing these people use, he started coughing when the pot was smoked I told this person no drugs in house, he claimed he stopped, he didn't I am kicking him out I've told some of this to cops , I did not invite him to stay he was suppose to get to know the dogs, my other dog has been very sleepy but both eating well play on walks just very different behaviors at home
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help may. How old is may?
Customer: My male with diarrhea started tonight is year and half about 120 female is 5 about 80lbs, they are never sick I owned pet nutrition store, and live in men's with very little constant exposure to dogs, the vets up here are questionable at best, ***** ***** my older dog a vaccine after I expressly told them no she was depressed not eating because her best friend had died so I have little faith, plus they can usually eat anything and everything cause that's the diet I give them, I just want to know if their symptoms could be caused by second hand exposure of course if they get worse their is an emergency vet in vail I'll take them too-I've ran many different holistic clinics, I'm probably the client that some vets dread of course I kept a previous dog alive for 6 years after being diagnosed with cardio myopathy and given a 6 month time table to live
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about may?
Customer: Again the diarrhea is new, and that followed the coughing and it all started with this person staying in my house-I am not that familiar with recreational drugs although meth in my opinion dose not fit, could my boy get diarrhea from a very small exposure or second hand smoke, the person has been out of my house coughing stopped but as I said today since I was unaware this item was in my house and he's way to intrested in everything he picked that baggy up of course I got it away from him immediately and destroyed everything, my question is it possible because the answer will determine if I call the sherif get a drug sniffing dog to clear my house and have him supervised by the police -or just have a neighbor watch him pick the rest of the crap he has here-if he could of gotten sick from just second hand exposure I need to do some treating of the house before my 80 year old parents visit
