Veterinary cannabis and CBD for pets is everywhere, and with good reason. Cannabis medicine is an exciting breakthrough for health issues like pain in animals and humans. But how does it work? What's a good cannabis brand? How do you spot a bad CBD product? We have questions too. Now, our new Cannabis Corner with Tripawds feature can cut through the confusion.
Ready for unbiased, science-based facts about veterinary cannabis? Let's do this.
Welcome to Cannabis Corner with Tripawds
As early as 2015 we were hearing buzz about cannabis for pets. People were calling it a miracle cure for everything. But vets didn't want to talk about it to clients. And pet parents kept buying products without good information, or vet guidance. Growing numbers of pets overdosing on pot was proof that all of us needed more education.
Tripawds Veterinary Cannabis Guide is at your service
Then we met Dr. Casara Andre, founder of of Veterinary Cannabis Education and Consulting. She and her team are educating veterinary professionals and pet parents about safe, effective cannabis use for dogs, cats, and other pets. Dr. Casara's non-profit group offers education in cannabis science to pet people who want to learn more.
Today, we are happy to announce that Tripawds has a certified Veterinary Cannabis Guide in the community. Tripawds co-founder Rene Agredano (aka Jerry's Mom), will share helpful information about veterinary cannabis for Tripawds (and all other mammals).
