I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. How long has he been like this?

My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

If he ate a joint, he would be sleepy and could be drooling. There is no antidote; you just have to wait for it to wear off which can take a few hours to a day.

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color? If his gums are pale he may need medical attention. If they are pink that is a good sign he is stable.

Will he take any food or water?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

I hope you were able to see what I wrote. Can I answer anything else? How is he doing?
