Cannabis-based therapies With Dr. Stephanie McGrath, Associate Professor, Neurology at Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Colorado State University today on It's A Dog's life with Angela Ardolino. Dr. McGrath is an absolute rising star in the field of veterinary CBD research and she’s leading the pack with cutting-edge clinical trials and groundbreaking discoveries about dogs with epilepsy and other neurological diseases. We’re biased because we’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. McGrath, but we think no matter who you are, you’re bound to be blown away by this veterinary superstar. Cannabis-based therapies have been used for centuries for various medicinal purposes. They have recently gained publicity as an effective medication for use in human medicine and, as such, awareness is increasing among veterinarians and pet owners. However, side effects, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy in dogs are not known.
