Veterinary Cannabis Services


The use of cannabis in both veterinary and human medicine is growing in popularity. Pet owners and veterinary professionals alike should be aware of the potential risks and benefits of providing cannabis therapy to dogs and cats. Our team of Veterinary Cannabis Counselors provides harm-reduction education to pet owners and veterinary professionals in how best to navigate the realm of veterinary cannabis therapeutic options that can help bring balance to a patient’s endocannabinoid system and may provide a better quality of life.


What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is present in all mammals and other species that have a spinal cord. It is a communication system responsible for maintaining physiologic balance in the body. Humans and other animals naturally produce neurotransmitters (endocannabinoids) that interact with the ECS.

Some plants also produce chemicals (phytocannabinoids) that interact with the ECS. An abundant source of phytocannabinoids can be found in various species of Cannabis plants. These plants produce several hundred phytocannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD) and Δ9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), as well as other substances (e.g., terpenes, flavonoids) that work together to balance the ECS.

Conditions that May Benefit from Cannabis Therapy

Although scientific research regarding the use of cannabis in veterinary medicine is limited, human research, as well as clinical impressions, have shown cannabis to be advantageous in the treatment of many disorders in veterinary patients, including but not limited to:

  • Mobility disorders
  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Appetite stimulation
  • Neurological disorders
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Cancer

Use of Cannabis Products in Veterinary Medicine

Cannabis products may be used in conjunction with or separate from traditional medical treatments to improve a pet’s quality of life. Pet owners should talk with their veterinarians about appropriate treatment options for their pets’ medical conditions. It is vitally important that the veterinary team is aware that a pet is receiving cannabis in order to monitor for both positive and negative health trends, as well as for interactions with current drug treatments.

Careful product selection is important to reduce the potential for harm to a pet from the administration of a poor-quality product. Products should be evaluated for growth and harvesting techniques, safe processing and extraction methods, as well as appropriate labeling and freedom from harmful additives in the final product.

Veterinary Cannabis Consulting

A consultation with one of our certified Veterinary Cannabis Counselors begins with a thorough review of the pet’s medical history followed by an in-depth conversation with you to gather additional information regarding therapy goals for the pet. Following this, the cannabis counselor will suggest a product that is best suited for the pet’s condition and provide dosing guidance. Veterinary cannabis consultations are $75 and include three months of monitoring and follow-up care.
