02692-A: Evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of point of care analysis using urine and plasma in marijuana toxicosis
Grant Status: Open
Given the increase in availability of marijuana in the United States, a higher number of presumed marijuana exposures have been reported in veterinary emergency clinics. Since the clinical signs of marijuana ingestion are non-specific and may be observed in several disorders, an accurate canine bedside diagnostic test may alleviate the need for expensive and invasive diagnostic procedures in canine patients. To date, no studies have evaluated the accuracy of urine drug screening tests using non-invasive urine or blood samples in dogs. The purpose of this study is to determine the best method to diagnose marijuana toxicity in dogs in a point of care emergency setting.
