Awhile back we did a review/giveaway for herbal pet strips from Vet Guru created by Los Angeles veterinarian Doug Kramer, 36, known as the “Vet Guru,” but Dr. Doug is now a crusader for a different kind of herbal medicine. The innovative, holistic vet has been getting a lot of press lately for being an advocate for medical marijuana or MM. Medical Marijuana is clinically proven to alleviate pain and nausea in human patients with cancer and Dr. Doug believes MM has veterinary potential. He reports seeing positive results in pets with cancer from reduced anxiety and nausea, increased appetite and pain relief for a more comfortable end of days. The June, 2013 feature article of JVMA, the journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association features Dr. Doug Kramer on veterinary marijuana.
Despite our cute kitty cartoon, medical marijuana should never smoked or given to a pet to get high.
After five years of research, he’s put his knowledge into a new, little e-book Sweet Serenity: A Definitive Guide To Making Herbal Tinctures For Pets. Don’t let the discrete title confuse you, it is a step-by-step guide for making all herbal tinctures including medical marijuana. It’s nicely laid out with clear easy to understand instructions with diagrams. The e-book is available for sale online at VetGuru.
I would love to hear any feedback privately if you have used medical marijuana on your cat or dog.
Would you ever consider MM for your cat?
