For decades I have lived under the assumption that Scooby-Doo served merely as a warning to pets everywhere.
Turns out, the beloved lover of potentially illicit Scooby Snacks is rather typical of his species.
Dogs love marijuana, says non-local vet Jennifer Schoedler. “I’ve seen them eat the buds, plants, joints and marijuana in food.”
Schoedler made the surprise announcement in a Durango (Colorado) Herald article entitled “Vets see more dogs snarfing humans’ medical pot.”
Durango vets say easier-to-come-by weed is “poisoning” man’s best friend.
“We used to see maybe one case a year,” said veterinarian Stacee Santi. “Now we’re seeing a couple a month.”
Marijuana, like chocolate and coffee, is bad for dogs, said Schoedler, and “stoned” pets may require hospitalization.
In Georgia, of course, we won’t have to worry about our pets “snarfing” our plant-based meds and getting sick — marijuana, in all its myriad forms, is illegal here. We also don’t have to worry about the government planting microchips in our brains. Our Legislature, which will soon convene again, is taking care of us.
