Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

What strength/milligrams cannibas was it?

How much chocolate (grams, ounces), and was it dark or milk?

How long ago did she eat this?

He may of only got a little bite of it. So not much at all. It was 180milligrams of thc. Or that’s how strong the whole bar is. But she only got a tiny piece, no bigger then my thumb
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Gave her peroxide to make her throw up .. which she did twice ... didn’t really see any signs of chocolate in there
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Hello again,

Now I am glad to hear that it was just a tiny piece as that carries low risk for Aspen's size. So, we may not see any issue at all but its possible we could see short term GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea), lethargy/mild sedation, and wobbliness. But again if she had a small amount we won't necessarily see that at all. So while we could try inducing vomiting again or use activated charcoal at this point (which I am happy to discuss), we don't strictly need to. You can choose to just take things easy and monitor for today. As well to offset any GI upset, you can consider offering a light diet option. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. Further to this, if we see any nausea, we can also treat with an antacid like Pepcid (More Info/Dose @http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid) or Zantac (More Info/Dose @ http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/ranitidine-hcl-zantac). Whichever you use, we'd give this 20 minutes before food to allow absorption and of course double check with your vet before use if your wee one has any known health issues or is on any medications you haven't mentioned. But otherwise you can just monitor her today and we'd expect mild signs if any to settle within 12 -24 hours.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.

Ok thank you. Is the charcoal something you can buy at grocery store? Or only a vet office? In case I was wrong about how much she ate. Although I know it couldn’t have been much. What is the amount to cause for more of panic
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

You are very welcome, my dear.

As I noted its OTC (over the counter) so you can get it at the vet, but you can get it from some pharmacies. Walmart and such places also carry the low dose version which can be used but you'd need to open a bunch of tablets to get enough powder to meet Aspen's dose (53 grams). But that can be used to be safe if you think she had more than a quarter of the bar.

Have a lovely day,

Dr. B.
