In a recent article by ELLEN CHANDLER The Bulletin,
Cases of dogs poisoned by marijuana rising where drug is legal.
Veterinarians in Oregon say they have seen a serious increase in marijuana toxicity cases, usually in dogs, since recreational use of the drug was legalized. Many of the cases involve edible marijuana products, but a “little, tiny quantity — in some cases maybe a quarter of a gram, a tenth of a gram — can cause severe signs in some animals,” says veterinarian Adam Stone…
…So what to do if a dog gets high? Nitschelm and Stone advise pet owners to call their vet if it is still close to the time of ingestion, and induce vomiting according to the vet’s instructions. Waiting until the full effects of THC kick in means the pet may be too sedate to safely induce vomiting.
Once the toxin is out of the animal, take it immediately to the nearest open vet clinic.
“The typical treatment is inducing vomiting and then you give an anti-nausea medication to keep them from vomiting overnight,” Stone said.
The article also points out that “other common toxins that vets have treated recently include drugs such as ibuprofen, which can cause liver damage, kidney damage, even brain damage, and acetaminophen, which is fatal to cats.
Garlic, onions, grapes, raisins, dark chocolate and macadamia nuts are also toxic to dogs”.
Hello Alec, Had a chance to give the gogostik a test & it works great for my purposes. I have a small dog, I take him for walks twice a day and he goes directly in the bag. No scooping required, just dispose of the bag. I only have a small supply of bags that came with the gogostik so I would like to purchase a larger supply to have on hand, possibly a case of 500 bags or so. Please let me know if I can purchase a bulk amount of bags; if so how many and the price. Need ASAP.
PS. I’ve been telling everyone about your product because I love it. I love that I don’t have to have something sitting around in my garage covered in dog poop. I think it’s lighter and cleaner than all the other options out there. Thank you again!
I have two female dachounds. Since I can not bend while I am healing from my back surgery I hesitated to walk my dogs. I had no idea how I was going to pick up poop. Yesterday I tried the GoGo stick out for the first time. It worked great! I could pick up the poop without bending and everything went right in the bag I had attached to the stick. I was very happy to be able to avoid any mess. Thank you so much. Martha
I am a disabled veteran in a wheelchair. I recently received a Service dog and was at a loss as to how I would clean up after him. I no longer have the hand strength or dexterity to use traditional scoopers with jaws. I can’t squeeze them open. I finally found this product and it is amazing. And since I can’t bend over due to the wheelchair and my brain injury, the extension handle allows me to easily reach and scoop up my dog’s messes. Trust me, you need this product!

We buy a lot of things from Amazon, but this is by far, the most used item we’ve ever bought. We purchased our first one a little over a year ago and used it every single day, a few times a day. We don’t have a yard, so we walk our poochie. When he squats, we slip this bad boy under his rear and play “catch the poo” – as can bee seen in the attached photo. Our doggo doesn’t seem to mind it one bit. Far better than bending over and picking up warm squishy stuff with bag-gloved hand. If you have to scoop any up from the ground, the shovel shaped head makes it fairy easy to scoop up with some maneuvering. It works best with Out! brand large, handled heavy duty bags. Standard bags can be used, but don’t secure onto the stick as easily. You can even use plastic bags from the grocery store, but they can be bulky if you’re playing “catch the poo”.
After a little over a year, we purchased a second one because the mechanism that keeps the extender in the locked position wore out. Definitely got our moneys worth out of the first one. Will gladly purchase a third in another year or so if this one wears out.
Message: Great product. I started using an early version of the Go Go Stick almost two years ago after having a fall and was having trouble cleaning up after our SharPei.
My daughter saw the Stick on line and immediately had one sent to me as a St. Valentine Day’s gift. (some gift)
Little did I think it would turn out so great. The very first time I took the dog out with the stick it worked out. Not want to create a mess of things, I stuck the Stick (bag end) under the dog while he was going. He turned his head around to check it out and that began years of success with it. Since that day all we have to do is wait for him to squat and he goes right in the bag. His deposit never touches the ground, or anything else but the inside of the bag. Simply great. Thanks so much.
