About This Episode
Returning from a rather long hiatus, we’re happy to be back in the studio and hope that you and yours are staying safe and healthy.
Our very first interview on this show was with a New York State legislator who introduced the first cannabis legislation in 2015. Stephen Katz also happened to be a veterinarian, who was one of the first in the country to develop CBD supplements to treat dogs suffering with painful arthritis. So much has changed since then, and cannabis therapy for animals is now far more common than not for treating a wide variety of animal ailments, including cancer.
But not all cannabis therapies are good for all canines and, like their human companions, each has unique conditions that respond to cannabinoids differently according to their size, weight and breed. That happens to be something my guest today, Dr. Trina Hazzah knows a lot about. She is the author of Cannabis in Veterinary Medicine: A Critical Review, which was recently published in the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association – the only peer-reviewed scientific journal focusing exclusively on integrative veterinary medicine. She talked abut the study and offered some useful “Dos and Don’ts” pertaining to CBD and cannabis for dogs, and their human companions.
