As it turns out, humans aren’t the only ones who can benefit from medical cannabis. This herbal substance can also help animals in several important ways.

In fact, two of the nation’s leading holistic veterinarians Dr. Rob Silver and Dr. Gary Richter have been getting so many questions about how to successfully use cannabis with pets, they’ve teamed up with Green Flower to create an online Masterclass for all animal lovers and veterinarians.

Silver has been a pioneering figure in the realm of holistic veterinary medicine since the 1980’s. However, the theme of cannabis and pets came to his attention soon after Colorado legalized medical cannabis in 2000.

“Clients started trickling in with their pets who had problems I was trying to fix, and they would tell me about their successes using medical marijuana that they had gotten for themselves but shared with their pets. That got my attention,” Silver recalls.

Silver took a closer look, trying to understand more and digging into whatever research was available. For example, he found that dogs have the highest concentration of THC receptors in their brain, which makes them especially sensitive to this drug.

As cannabis became more popular in Colorado, Silver observed a disconcerting uptick in animal overdoses with cannabis. “The pet parents had either given them too much or the pets had actually grabbed an edible that had been left out – and that really concerned me,” Silver says.

“I felt that the best way to address this was through education, and education really is the best medicine. And so that’s when I wrote my book: Medical Marijuana and Your Pet.”

The book sparked a lot of discussion in the veterinarian world, and it was just the beginning.

As a holistic veterinarian and scientist, Dr. Gary Richter helps dog and cat owners to navigate the thicket of treatment options and separate the fact from the fiction. He wants us to use what actuallyworks, not just what Western science or alternative medicine say “should” work. This multifaceted approach to health is known as integrative medicine.

Dr. Richter examines traditional medicine from many cultures alongside modern medical techniques, describing the best of complementary care and the best of conventional veterinary medicine. Every treatment he recommends has the backing of scientific research or years of successful outcomes in his clinical practice. After explaining the treatment, he offers specific recommendations for an integrative approach to common diseases, including allergies, skin conditions, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

A holistic approach to health includes nutrition, as it sets up the foundation for your pet’s health. Dr. Richter cuts through the hype in the pet-food world and explains how to choose the best commercial foods and supplements, and even includes both raw and cooked dog- and cat-food recipes for general diet as well as to treat specific needs. He also explains how we can use the right foods and supplements to “hack” the body’s processes, including the immune system.

In What Ways Does Cannabis Help Animals?

In the new Masterclass, Silver and Dr. Gary Richter cover how to effectively and safely treat a wide range of conditions with cannabis including:

  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Pain
  • Limping
  • End-of-life care
  • Poor appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Inflammation
  • Seizures
  • GI problems
  • Anxiety / stress / restless nights

Richter points out how gastrointestinal issues are one of the most frequent ailments for which people give their pets medical cannabis.

“Animals with inflammatory bowel disease or chronic vomiting and diarrhea were literally coming to us as their last resort before the pet was euthanized,” Richter says.

“Some of these animals are symptom-free now. And some of them have been able to reduce or discontinue the laundry list of Western medications they were taking just to manage these symptoms – so that aspect of it has been so dramatic and was a little surprising to me.”

And it’s not just pet owners who are picking up on this new medicine. As the nation furthers its embrace of cannabis, many veterinarians want to learn more as well.

“Quite clearly this is something that needs to be taken seriously. You don’t have to be on the cutting edge or fringe of the medical research community at this point to know that there are medical benefits to the use of cannabis,” Richter says. “Now it’s becoming common knowledge and part of the natural discussion.”

This Is Not About Getting Animals High

This is one misconception that Silver likes to address up front: cannabis for pets is a serious subject and not at all about getting the animals high.

“We used to see this giggle factor around the pot for pets topic, people thinking about blowing smoke in their pets ear or nose and getting them high and laughing at the animal’s discoordination, which is really because of how the THC is affecting their brain,” Silver says.

“To me that’s not what this is about. This is not about getting our pets high at all. It’s about getting them well. And it’s about trying to use the medicine in such a way that they don’t get high, a factor that you can modulate with CBD-rich products for example.”
