Tonawanda News —
Barchas doesn’t recommend medical marijuana for pets at this time, primarily because it is illegal.
“Also, there has been insufficient study of the matter, and products have such varying potencies, that determining an appropriate dose is almost impossible.”
Lastly he added that because many dogs do not react favorably to the medication he worries that the benefits of the product might not outweigh the risk of an adverse response.
As we learn more about medical marijuana, Brutlag and Barchas, said it is extremely important that pet owners don’t take this information as an excuse to self-medicate our critter companions. Not only would such action be illegal, it is not in the best interest of the pet.
