Cannabis and the Veterinarian

This year the use of CBD  in veterinary medicine is a hot topic. My fellow member of the Bar, Betsy Choder of Vetcounsel.net wrote a comprehensive article on the topic for the GVMA earlier this year. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you do so.

In addition, the FDA has recently published a set of FAQs that every veterinarian should read on the ability to prescribe CBD derived products. Here is the FAQ link – https://www.fda.gov/news-events/public-health-focus/fda-regulation-cannabis-and-cannabis-derived-products-including-cannabidiol-cbd#extralabelanimals.

I’ve spoken on this topic to legislators at the State Capitol earlier this year, and at GVMA sponsored LEAP sessions. I have several more this year where I condense and summarize this information, including how to interpret the FDA guidance in relationship to Georgia’s Practice Act.

This topic is developing, so I recommend checking with the FDA site regularly to see if there are updates.
