CVMA, CVO, and OVMA publish cannabis guidelines for pets

Tips establish a standard for handling situations involving marijuana in veterinary practice in Ontario

The College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO), the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), and the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) have released a set of best practices aimed at informing veterinarians and their clients on the cannabis use now that the product is legal in Canada.

The guidelines include categorized information about the country’s new marijuana law, the signs of marijuana toxicity, and pet-safety tips for owners.

Currently, there are no approved veterinary drugs containing cannabis or cannabidiol (CBD) and veterinarians are not allowed to prescribe any of these products for animal use.
