Cannabis for Pets


Registered veterinary technicians Liz Hughston and Stephen Cital of the Veterinary Cannabis Academy talk on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show HERE about one of the hottest topics in veterinary medicine, the use of cannabis products for our pets.

Can cannabis help our pets? And if so, how?

The good news is that there are an increasing number of available safe cannabis products for pets, say both Hughston and Cital, both advisors for Phyto Animal Health

The studies are coming regarding CBD for cats and dogs, though for people there are many studies – especially from Europe and the Middle East  (the U.S. has lagged behind).

Dr. Google is not the best place to get these products, as state veterinary medical boards has put restrictions of what veterinarians can suggest in a few states. This creates its own problems, as people are then even more likely go online and choose whatever they choose without expert input.
