Cannabis and What You Need to Know

Cannabis and What You Need to KnowAs the interest in cannabis products grows for human use, so does the interest in the uses for animals. However, unfortunately, there are no studies to support the claim that it can benefit animals.

What we do know is that marijuana products are toxic to cats and dogs. In the case of a toxic exposure the signs can be similar to those with humans; mild toxic reactions can result in your pet appearing stoned, lethargic, and red or bloodshot eyes. In the case of a severe reaction, your pet may show signs such as, losing control of their bowls, walking as if they are drunk, slow breathing, vomiting, and diarrhea, all of which can lead to coma or death. If you are concerned that your pet may have ingested any form of cannabis and are seeing these symptoms, it is very important to get them to a Vet!

Although the idea that cannabis may be helpful to our pets is an exciting thought, we cannot say that it is safe to use without more research and studies. We need to be safe and certain of the efficacy, safety, and quality of the products. At this time there are not enough regulations and control over these products, we are unable to know what is exactly what these products.

Your pets’ safety is our main goal. We want to give them the best care possible, and keep you informed about the potential risks that can occur with cannabis. At this time we do not recommend the use of cannabis products with your pets.

I brought in my 9 week old kitten who had an injured leg. They were so compassionate and took the best care of him. He is in a splint and will do laser therapy to heal quicker. I am so grateful they had a cancellation and could get me in. Dakota and Dr Rivera explained everything to me with upfront pricing that I could afford. I will be bringing both of my kittens here for all their veterinary needs. Again I am so grateful, a day later and my kitten is comfortable and healing.
