He is staggering and...

He is staggering and trying to puke and can't stand up straight

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

He may have been around my roommate while he was smoking weed

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your dog, please?

THC intoxication is certainly a consideration as his symptoms are pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of THC being ingested. His symptoms however, can also indicate quite a few other dietary indiscretions and vestibular (balance) disorders of dogs which can be idiopathic (unknown cause), involve the middle/inner ear(s), or cerebellum and/or brain stem.
