Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I cannot make a diagnosis over the phone, but I can give you some advice regarding your dog. The good news is, there is likely very little harm in him eating a small bug. Usually the worst thing to come of this is some GI upset (vomiting or diarrhea), but often times they don't have any issues with this at all. As far as the smoking pot, I would recommend not doing that in the same room as the dog and making sure your friend's boyfriend doesn't leave the pot anywhere where the dog might be able to eat it because both can have ill effects on the dog if either eaten or inhaled by the dog. Let me know if you have any further questions!

If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
