Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Cannabis Ingestion

Snoopy the dog seems to have been channeling Snoop Dogg when he got into some cannabis. It is very important to keep marijuana smoke, leaves, and baked goods away from pets because it can make them very sick. Marijuana can cause lethargy, vomiting, seizures and even coma in pets.

Snoopy’s owner, who has medicinal marijuana, noticed him acting strangely and disoriented. His vet visit included hospitalization, fluids, and activated charcoal.
