Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Pebbls recently swallowed a small amount of marijuana. Are you able to say about how much she swallowed (i.e. teaspoon, tablespoon, etc.)? How long ago did it happen?

Size of a pea. About 20 minutes now
Was given to me. Supposed to be medical grade
Dog Veterinarian: Scott Perry, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Thank you for that information. Although she only weighs 11 lbs, this is a very small amount of marijuana and toxicity is unlikely. However, if it is a concentrated amount meant for human consumption then that could cause signs such as neurological issues. If it is a concentrated amount meant for people then inducing vomiting in the first 30 minutes is recommended. You can do this by giving hydrogen peroxide at 1/2 teaspoon.

Dog Veterinarian: Scott Perry, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

No need to spend more money. Hydrogen peroxide is all you would need to induce vomiting. Otherwise, monitoring for dilated pupils, lethargy, and loss of urine control are the symptoms of toxicity. They are generally self limiting and resolve over 24 hours.
