Can Marijuana Smoke Harm My Pets?

Posted by Jennifer Smith on 27th Jun 2019

With the legalization of recreational marijuana in 11 states plus Washington, D.C., pot smokers want to know can inhaled weed affect pets. The short answer is yes - but not in the long run. 

Like people, pets that inhale pot smoke will start to feel "high," being relaxed and even lethargic. Marijuana toxicity in dogs will lead them to have: wobbly movements; dribbling urine; dazed looks in their eyes; and nervousness. High cats on marijuana will have the same uncoordinated movements and dilated pupils as dogs, but they may also vomit and experience low blood pressure and seizures!

While their are CBD oils for pets to calm anxiety, these types of medical cannabis products for pets can only be prescribed by a veterinarian. If dogs and cats are experiencing these symptoms, it's best to take them to a pet vet for evaluation and treatment. 

Smokers can enjoy the freedom to puff on weed; but maybe away from animals.
