Medical Marijuana and Your Pet is a guide for pet owners who are wondering if medical cannabis might help their pets who have problems that aren't easily solved by conventional medicine.
Written by Dr. Robert Silver, a holistic and herbal veterinarian who has practiced in Colorado throughout the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana.
Dr. Silver provides information that can help pet owners understand better the benefits and the potential risks of using medical marijuana for their pets who have serious medical problems. Dr. Silver describes medical research from the 1970s that found that dogs are more sensitive to the adverse effects of THC than any other species.
Dr. Silver writes that this book is not about getting pets HIGH. This book is about getting pets WELL.
The book is available in a 6 X 9 soft-bound print version, or downloadable in a variety of eBook formats.
Medical Marijuana and Your Pet provides information about products you may find in a dispensary, and explains which of these products are safer than others. In the 9th chapter of this book, Dr. Silver gives 6 recipes for marijuana for your pet, explaining how to make extracts from butter or coconut or olive oils, or simply how to make a tea from cannabis. Dr. Silver gives you guidance for getting your pet started safely on medical marijuana, and explains how hemp based CBD extracts are safer than medical marijuana due to the lower, non-psychotropic amount of THC found in Hemp plants.

Very informative and easy to read. Lots of tips if you're just starting out with this treatment. Our pup had lymphoma and was given 6-8 weeks to live (with chemo). We didn't use chemo, but switched to a holistic vet who helped us navigate cannabis oil dosages. We also used Chinese herbs. He lived a happy, healthy, high quality extra year. I highly recommend using this book, along with your holistic vet, to help you navigate this amazing treatment. I wish it was legal everywhere!
Love this book! I'm an herbalist, so I very much appreciate the historical information about the many medicinal uses of Cannabis throughout the world - dating back to 2700 B.C.
The discussion of various forms of ingestion, from Cannabis Leaf Tea to simply sprinkling dried leaves on food, is very helpful and inspiring.
And the instructions for infusing your own Cannabis oil are very detailed, as are the recommended dosages.
So grateful for this book! I make my own sun-infused cannabis oil, and it has proven to be extremely helpful for my little dog.
This book gave me the confidence to include Cannabis in Lily's ongoing nutritional care.
Thank you, Dr. Silver.
Dr. Silver's book is a wonderful resource for anyone wishing to learn more about the uses of medical marijuana in pets. The book is organized very logically, from the history of medical marijuana use to the medical benefits of medical marijuana to its potential use in pets. At the end of the book he describes in great detail how to use medical marijuana for pets, discussing the pros and cons of the various methods of administration.
This book is an informative and extremely practical guide to the use of medical marijuana in pets. As a holistic veterinarian, I have recommended this book to both colleagues and clients alike.
