I'm Dr. Tim Shu, I make medical cannabis for animals. Pets can also benefit from cannabis, AMA!
My name is Dr. Tim Shu and I'm the founder and veterinarian behind VETCBD. We create medical cannabis products for pets to help relieve pain, anxiety, inflammation, nausea, seizures, and cognitive dysfunction. Many people are unaware that pets can safely and effectively benefit from cannabis using proper formulation and dosing. And it's not just dogs and cats that can benefit, we've had ferrets, rabbits, pigs, rodents, and horses find therapeutic relief through cannabinoid therapy. I started VETCBD because as healthcare providers we should explore all potential therapeutic options for our clients, and if cannabis offers therapeutic benefits for animals, it is our duty to thoroughly evaluate that potential.
I'm also here to raise awareness for California's Assembly Bill 2215, introduced by Assembly Member Ash Kalra. Currently veterinarians are barred from discussing or recommending cannabinoid therapy for pets, despite growing evidence that pets can greatly benefit from it. AB 2215 will allow for California veterinarians to discuss and recommend cannabis as a potential treatment modality.
Ask me anything!
