In this book the authors take a comprehensive look at previous studies in animal and human models and discuss translational applications based on these scientific data.
This seminal text serves as a go-to resource for veterinary practitioners on cannabinoid therapy. It will also serve as a foundation for clinicians and researchers interested in this emerging field of veterinary medicine.
This text was written as a guide for veterinary practitioners interested in the use of phyto cannabinoids as a therapy for companion animals. The pace at which research is being published on this topic and amid regulatory overhauls worldwide made the publication of this text critical and timely to practice veterinary medicine safely as it pertains to the therapeutic use of these compounds given client interest and the surmounting scientiﬁc evidence for their utility. Veterinary Medicine 11th Edition
Due to the speed at which regulatory changes are occurring in regard to cannabis (hemp and marijuana) and fear of publishing out of date material, this text focuses on the scientiﬁc and clinical aspects of cannabinoids in predominately dogs, cats, and horses. The authors of this text wrote their chapters to offer what evidence exists on their respective area of focus to help you make a more informed clinical decision. As with many things in veterinary medicine, we must be prepared to extrapolate information from other species, preclinical studies, and anecdote combined with our own clinical judgment to best care for our patients.
