Hooch For Pooches? Using Pot To Ease Pet Pain

(PETS/ANIMAL WELFARE/MEDICINE) We love our animals and will do anything to stop their pain, but what if your beloved dog or cat was diagnosed with cancer and the vet’s medicine wasn’t enough? What would you do? Now with the growing acceptance of medical marijuana, many pet guardians are using the drug to ease their furry friends’ suffering. There are many stories of animals including dogs, cats, and even horses who have had their health restored by marijuana treatment, but since marijuana is classified as an illicit drug, veterinarians aren't legally allowed to prescribe cannabis to our pets.

With many states now legalizing the use of medical marijuana for humans, the question remains: should veterinarians also be allowed to legally prescribe marijuana to our pets?
