What are Edibles?
Edibles are food products that contain THC, the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana. These include cookies, brownies, gummies, and other sweet treats infused with cannabis. Edibles can be a convenient way to consume marijuana since they don’t involve inhaling smoke.
Can Dogs Eat Edibles?
No, dogs should not eat edibles or any form of cannabis. THC is toxic for pets and can cause adverse health effects ranging from vomiting to seizures. Even small amounts of cannabis can have a significant impact on dogs due to their smaller size and metabolism compared to humans.
What Should You Do If Your Dog Eats an Edible?
If you suspect your dog has eaten an edible or any form of cannabis, seek veterinary care immediately. The symptoms may vary depending on the amount ingested and the potency of the product consumed but may include lethargy, loss of coordination, drooling, dilated pupils or anxiety.
How Can You Prevent Your Dog From Eating Edibles?
Prevention is key when it comes to keeping your pet safe from accidental ingestion of edibles or other drugs like medication and chocolate. Store all forms of cannabis products in secure places where pets cannot reach them; avoid using edibles around pets if possible as strong smells might attract them.
Educate children about not sharing their snacks with their furry friends as they might unknowingly feed them something harmful.
In conclusion: Keep people’s medications out sight (and pup’s reach) by locking cabinets or storing medicines up high while ensuring that your guests keep their belongings away from sniffing noses at all times during visits! Remember prevention is better than cure – so be vigilant about what you bring into your home when owning a furry friend!
