In case you missed it – Dogs on Parliament Hill
Earlier this month the Grey Wolf team along with the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and Canadian Association of Veterinary Cannabinoid Medicine and a great group of dogs gathered at Parliament Hill in Ottawa. We met with Senators, Members of Parliament, and other politicians to lobby for a change in the current cannabis legislation that will allow our furry friends access to therapeutic cannabis.
Current cannabis regulations do not allow veterinarians to assist pet owners with appropriate cannabis product selection, dosing, monitoring or avoiding drug interactions. Canadian veterinarians want to be able to authorize medical cannabis as a therapeutic option for their patients but currently lack a legal pathway enabling them to do so.
