• My dog us about 8mon old ge ate some cannibals about 1 gram.. what should I do? he is very lethargic as if he was drunk and he is asleep now... it looks like he vomit yesterday. I watched he all night. He slept and woke still lathargic... do I let this pass and let him sleep ir bring him in

    Hi Angelica,
    If he is still lethargic, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian immediately if you have not already done so. The biggest concern with marijuana ingestion is the level of sedation. Depending on the dose eaten this can be severe which can cause issues like dehydration, aspiration of vomit leading to pneumonia, hypothermia, low blood pressure, and even death. Your vet can talk to you more about the care that your pet needs after they have examined him.
