Apparently a local radio station recently broadcast a media story about using marijuana medicinally in dogs. There is no research in veterinary medicine on either the benefits or risks of using marijuana medicinally in dogs! Many medications that are safe in people are very dangerous to dogs and cats. At Animal Care Clinic we treat cases of marijuana toxicity regularly and we can assure these patients are not comfortable while under the influence of high doses of marijuana.
Please never give any medications to your pets without talking to your veterinarian first. This includes over-the-counter medications, prescriptions for people or animals, and even supplements. We want you to avoid dangerous medication interactions and serious side effects. Call us any time – we are here to help!
