Legalization of cannabis leads to owners of dogs who have eaten their stashes to be less afraid to report this fact.

Same number of dogs getting high, just more reporting.

jaylectricity: Legalization of cannabis leads to owners of dogs who have eaten their stashes to be less afraid to report this fact.

This, sorta.  But let's be realistic -- legalization does lead to more widespread use, which leads to more inexperienced pot "owners" leaving their drugs within reach of their pet, which will lead to more accidental puppydoses.  I imagine that this will lead, within a few years, to MUCH better veterinary knowledge of the effects of cannabis on a wide range of animals, which research couldn't have been done in a nation where the drug is Schedule 1 everywhere.

Yes, it's possible that a few more animals will get really, really high, and a few may have really bad outcomes.  But in the long run, this is going to make things safer for dogs, cats, and other weed-snitchin' critters.

So a dog eats a plate of pot brownies and dies, is it the pot or the chocolate that killed it?

One of my older female cats was a kitten in a stoner's apartment before we adopted her. If she gets a whiff, she acts like a little furry fiend.

/I've kept my cats mostly sober
//the vet has to drug Lebowski like there's no tomorrow whenever he goes in for a checkup, and since he's more fur than body he's loopy for days

timujin: So a dog eats a plate of pot brownies and dies, is it the pot or the chocolate that killed it?


Probably both. I've seen dogs eat a whole plate of (straight) brownies and not die; but I can't imagine it was good for them. So add some also not-good weed and it would probably be fatal.

Probably a big part of the problem here is that people are used to the idea that "There's no such thing as a pot overdose" which is essentially true for HUMANS; but not true for animals with their different metabolisms. It will take time for this fact to filter down to street level.

If a dog eats your stash, you can smoke its shiat and get high.

That's how the term 'good shiat' came about. My stoner friend told me this, so it must be true. Try it.

"Watanabe also spoke to Bruce Castillo, an emergency veterinarian technician at an Eagle Rock clinic who says he usually treats two or three stoned dogs a night."

Unless that pet hospital treats hundreds of pets a day, I'm calling bullshiat on this claim.

My mothers poodle ate a stray Ibuprofen tablet off the floor and nearly died, (mom has Parkinson's so can't really fault her), so your argument is invalid.

Our dog ate a bottle of ritalin once. Really concerning at first, but once it was clear that it wasn't a fatal dose and she would just have to work it off, it became somewhat funny.

She was tossing a bone up and down the steps so she could chase it for hours. Horrible, pitiful, and hilarious, all at the same time.

And there was the time that the cat decided to finish what was left of my mother's White Russian. That one was just pure funny. No particularly memorable story, the cat was just wandering around drunk for a few hours.

"I was terrified that he'd had a stroke and was paralyzed. Or was dying." Monte recovered but had to spend the night in the hospital with an IV drip. The whole ordeal ended up costing Watanabe over $700.

And, the stupid mutt did the same damned thing, the very next day, as soon as she went to the store....
 
2013-09-21 12:15:17 AM
Even if it was legal and easily obtainable I think I'd still keep mine where the dogs couldn't get it.

I mean, if they eat it that means I gotta go get more. Buzzkill dude.

Because you already have in mind a figure for what percentage of stoned dogs there are?  What field of research are you in?  Gut?

You can't overdose on weed. It's a fact. I'm not saying the dog wasn't freaking out a bit, or eating crazy shiat, or philosophizing some nonsense, but at least the dog didn't die. No hangover either, so that's a bonus.
 
2013-09-21 12:23:57 AM
B.S story is B.S. If your dog eats your stash, you're an irresponsible dog owner and stoner. Take good care of both.

When I was a kid (stoner teen) we'd go horseback riding, and when we stopped to get high, we'd blow the smoke up the horses nostrils.  And not a fark was given the rest of the day.

So they charged $700 to let a doggie ride out the high...
(but really, it was theater for the freaked-out owner)
...sounds like a vet I'd be glad to avoid, if I lived in the area

Thanksgiving 2012. The smaller of our two shelties was acting very strange. Moping around, flinching when we tried to pet her. Took her to the vet. The first thing the vet said was," Does anyone in the house smoke weed?" My wife is an mmj user so she said yes. $300 later we figured out that she'd gotten hold of a bit of bud butter.

When we were like 14 or something we'd sometimes capture a bunch of spiders, put them in a big gatorade bottle, blow weed smoke in it and then wait for the spider fights to commence. But yeah, smoking out dogs and cats is pretty funny. I try to suss out whether they're consenting participants though. Also, no kittens or puppies.

This is kind of a hobby of mine. I like to smoke up animals. I've got a few cats and dogs high, a turtle, a rubber boa, multiply spiders, grasshoppers, flies, mesquites, a cockatiel, couple snails and a squirrel.

Snails always seem to enjoy it.

That's pretty sweet. I got a gecko and a hedgehog on my list. Snails are gross though. I killed like 50 of them in the yard the other day after it rained. Literally.

I had a dog once that drank gasoline. In a panic, I called the vet. I told him that our dog drank gasoline and was running around the yard in circles like crazy. The vet said that my dog would eventually be fine once he ran out of gas.

/it was the chocolate, not the stash that killed a Fido.

You do need to be careful with your edibles.  My friend's dog ate a brownie (not sure how many).  Poor girl was really farked up for a day and not right for maybe 2 days.  Couldn't go up / down the stairs, trouble walking, and generally not well at all.  Certainly didn't kill her, though.

My brothers puppy snatched and ate a 2g coin of bubble hash one night. We were concerned, but he was fine, minus some motor function control issues for a few hours. Dog grew up to be a total stash snatcher after that though.
 
2013-09-21 02:57:38 AM
Boyfriend's dog ate a couple of hits of acid off the coffee table one time. We were a little scared at first, giant rottweiler, if she freaked we were screwed. She was fine by morning. I'm betting the large amounts of chocolate hurt more than the weed.
 
2013-09-21 03:54:34 AM
All you all are confusing a stoned doggie or kittie which is high from SMOKE, which is probably okay and no more hazardous to your pet than it is to you; with a stoned doggie or kittie which has EATEN copious amounts of weed, and which can be very hazardous to your pet depending on its size and the potency of the weed. And likely Mr. Emergency Vet Tech is too.

Believe it or not--probably you don't, but that's your problem--locoweed and other plant-derived hallucinogens like marijuana contain alkaloids that can be toxic to animals in large enough quantities; qualifier here being LARGE ENOUGH quantities. No human could eat enough weed to die from it, or a big dog; but little ankle-biters and puppies might be able to if they weren't caught in time. The whole point of toxins (hallucinogens) in plants is to keep animals from eating them by causing nausea, motor impairment, etc., but people think "har har the doggie's stoned let's get him more stoned won't that be funny!" and if it's just smoke it probably is; but if its plant material that the dog can't digest very easily, not so funny.

That said, unless it's one of those rat-sized mutts that nobody will care if it dies anyway, chances are good your dog WON'T die from eating your stash and it's more likely a combination of the chocolate and the pot that's killing these poor dogs (that and their stoned owners are taking them to equally stoned "vet technicians"); but then again someone's going to get a pit bull stoned someday and get their face eaten off; and then we'll all suffer when "ZOMFG STONED DOGS WE BETTER BAN POT/DOGS/GUNZ/WHATEVER!!!" But that's another nightmare.
