The latest in veterinary medicine: Stoned pets
I occasionally write about the food politics of marijuana-infused edibles.
Something new every day.
Here’s the latest veterinary problem: stoned dogs.
Dogs get into their owners’ edibles. Yum.
Veterinarians say they see cases of “canine marijuana poisoning” every day, with a big increase since 2010.
Pets get their own medical marijuana, as needed. But edibles cause emergency room visits.
This is all so complicated. You also have to make sure your kids don’t get into the drugs prescribed for your pets.
Lots to worry about. Have a great week.
