EP 59 - Canines on Cannabis
Dr. Carol Osborne sees cannabis products being used for pets just as they are used for humans. It can stimulate or numb receptors for different situations.

Dr. Osborne notes that cannabis isn’t approved for animal use by a veterinary authority, but that doesn’t stop holistic practitioners and pet parents from using CBD products on their pets. 

Since the products aren’t regulated, there’s no telling what exactly is in the vial, capsule or biscuit. Trying multiple brands may be necessary to get the desired result in your pet. The concentration may vary.

While there are no published studies of cannabis killing a pet, Dr. Osborne suggests starting with a very low dose and increasing the dosage in small increments.

Listen as Dr. Osborn joins Dr. Bond to discuss the ins and outs of cannabis for canines and kitties.
