Cannabis for dogs is a hot subject of debate. Some individuals are administering medical marijuana to their dogs by themselves, while some bud shops are selling pet treats laced with marijuana. Unfortunately, due to a lack of research, it is uncertain the proper dosage amounts for dogs, so administering it yourself might be harmful to your dog. Different types of bud and cannabis oil for puppies has similar results on puppies as they do to individuals --increased appetite and decreased nausea. Medical marijuana has provided dogs relief for cancer and arthritis, but it is still not accepted by the AVMA, ASPCA or some other organization.


Caution: It can be dangerous to provide your pet bud. If your dog wants it for medical reasons, be sure to follow your vet's protocol closely. As with any drug, giving your dog more than recommended, or giving it to your dog when it's not essential, is reckless.

To legalize or not to legalize, that's the question. But it's just one of several questions we must inquire as dog owners at a state where the standing of marijuana is in regular. While we can't predict whether your pet is going to be as excited about the legalization of marijuana as you are, we can help you understand the probable things to think through before administering it into your canine companion. We've compiled a list of the most common questions surrounding dogs and marijuana and researched them to supply responses for you.

Size plays a substantial role in how cannabis effects dogs.
