SCVMA VTM and CaRVTA Present: Scooby's Doobies
Description:  With the advent of decriminalization of recreational use of cannabis in several states, and the increasing use of medical cannabis in human medicine, interest is growing in how medical cannabis might be used to treat veterinary patients as well. This talk - presented by a co-editor of the only veterinary cannabis textbook on the market - will review the current ongoing research, any available evidence, as well as present anecdotal information about the use of medical cannabis for dogs and cats. Your clients are using it: get information to help them make the best decisions.
