Marijuana Poisoning in Dogs on the Rise in Maine
A lot of people don't realize that the psychoactive drug in pot, THC, IS NOT good for your dogs. THC will depress your canine's central nervous system, cause lethargy, tremors and in some cases even death. Yet Maine veterinarians are noticing an increase in the number of dogs they are treating for a virtual THC 'overdose'. The Pet Poison Helpline has seen a 448% increase in Marijuana Poison calls for dogs in the last six years.
Long story short- Just be CAREFUL! With weed becoming more prevalent as legalization expands, it's on users to make sure their supply is stored somewhere that your nosey pups won't go looking!
