Hey there pet owners! We’ve been talking about an important new bill surrounding CBD use in pet care treatments. Today’s the day that bill goes into action! We want to share with you how this bill is going to impact your pet’s care and the options you have.
House Bill 5085, signed by Gov. Whitmer, allows veterinarians to consult with pet owners on CBD products and industrial hemp. Yes, that means we as veterinarians, can give you insight on medicinal CBD product options that may help your pets.
This means our vets can talk about products and point you toward research and factual information to help you make informed decisions about the care of your animals.
It’s important to know the specifics:
Can my vet prescribe any CBD products for my pet?
No. We cannot write CBD prescriptions for your animal but we can use our knowledge and experience to talk to you about CBD products to help in the care of your pet.
How can this help my pet?
This now gives you more options when it comes to your pet’s healthcare. These options and access to information can be a game changer for the overall life and longevity of your four-legged loved one!
What does this mean for my pet’s current medications?
Your pet’s current medications are not impacted by this until you make the choice and consult us as your veterinary team on any questions you may have. The information provided in this article is not recommending any medical advice for you or your pets and we are not advising you to cease or discontinue your pet’s current medications.
