Her body was so hot too. Only way to keep her still was to hold her, but holding her didn't help with cooling her. :/
Good lord. If this happens more than once to the same dog, could you at least make the case for gross negligence?

kiya My epilepsy group has been bringing this up for a while now. There are a lot of people so desperate to find help I see no reason to not look into it. I watched & have read stories about it helping children with seizures. The THC is removed from the plants there is no high. Personally I would try it on Kiya when more people report success.

Molecular Biologist Explains How THC Completely Kills Cancer Cells | Collective-Evolution

^^^
Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. Although not every strain of cannabis has the same effect, more and more patients are seeing success in cancer reduction in a short period of time by using cannabis. Contrary to popular belief, smoking cannabis does not assist a great deal in treating disease within the body as therapeutic levels cannot be reached through smoking. Creating oil from the plant or eating the plant is the best way to go about getting the necessary ingredients, the cannabinoids.

Please note: Don't go blowing smoke in Fido's face that is animal cruelty.

Pot for Pooches | Animal Wellness

^^^
When Nikita was facing her final weeks after a battle with cancer, her guardian and veterinarian Dr. Doug Kramer eased her discomfort with medical marijuana. The Siberian husky soon stopped whimpering with pain and began eating, gaining weight and even meeting Dr. Kramer at the door the way she used to. While the marijuana didn’t extend her life, it definitely improved the quality of the life she had left.

Colie CVT I truly think the issue is people need to be more freaking careful about things period. It's like dogs getting into chocolate at certain holidays (which Christmas this year was actually worse than Halloween at the ER clinic I work at). If you have something that is yours that's potentially toxic to your pets, don't let them get near it. Keep it safely out of reach and locked up.

Legally, vet clinics can't really do anything even if you have an illegal substance. I can't tell you how many dogs we have seen that test positive for meth.

We've seen a few pot dogs also. Not any that died however. I'd be more worried with those that get into chocolate, meth or medications. x.x

Brando & Julietta's Dad I think this is a non-issue. I live in California. When my dog had cancer I gave her lab-tested CBD marajuana oil to help stimulate appetite and control pain. This would never have been possible without legal medical marijuana. I can say this aided my dog's comfort and ability to extend her
life. The vet also approved the therepy. I'm sure with greater research much more can be acheived to help animals and humans.

I will attempt to make my sarcasm more apparent in the future

So to clear up any confusion; that was sarcasm and I am unaware of any dogs tipping over from MJ

Reminds me of that old Cheech & Chong where the guy blows out the window and the camera cuts to the pigeon outside with it's legs straight up.
