Denver Vets Seeing More Dogs Eating Edible Marijuana: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An animal hospital in Denver is seeing an increasing number of dogs who have eaten edible marijuana and is finding that the diagnosis isn`t good.


VCA Alameda East Veterinary Hospital is open 24 hours a day and they see hundreds of dogs every week from checkups to emergencies. Since Jan. 1 the clinic says dogs have been getting into their owner`s supply of marijuana, specifically edibles."

So far there hasn`t been a reported case of a pooch lighting up a bong and taking a few hits, but an increasing number of canines are eating marijuana cookies.

There`s no antidote for marijuana, if you suspect your dog has eaten a marijuana goodie take him to the vet immediately.

If Fido devours your Doritos, you don`t need any further proof that he got into your stash, take him to the vet post haste.

Children are also eating edible marijuana treats, parents and dog owners need to exercise a modicum of common sense and keep marijuana treats hidden away from pets and children.
