VETCBD is dedicated to the pursuit of introducing medicinal cannabis to pets and their owners, with the hopes of providing pet owners with medical alternatives for their animals. VETCBD is an all-natural tincture that utilizes CBD - a non-psychoactive cannabinoid - sourced from the full cannabis flower. VETCBD can be used to help with pain relief, anxiety, nausea, and seizures in companion animals. Introducing cannabis into veterinary care and animal wellness is part of VETCBD’s overall mission. Believing in the full advocacy for animals, VETCBD makes it their duty to provide education and information to pet owners when it comes to the use of cannabis. Through their tireless efforts to provide information and encourage owners to ask questions, VETCBD looks to connect the cannabis community with the world of animal care, one pet at a time.
VETCBD was founded as a pursuit to finding the best health options in veterinary care by Dr. Tim Shu. After receiving his degree in Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University, Dr. Shu worked as a veterinarian in many fields, including general medicine, emergency, and critical care, for seven years. During his time working in the veterinary world, he saw the close connection between pet and owner, seeing the importance of owners acting as advocates on behalf of their pets’ health and wellness. He noticed that many owners were weary of using prescription medications on their pets, fearing adverse side effects. As a veterinarian and animal lover, Dr. Shu saw it as his duty to pursue alternatives for pets and their owners. Dr. Shu was already familiar with the cannabis community before founding VETCBD. As a patient himself, Dr. Shu was familiar with the therapeutic effects with human patients and made it a point to talk with other patients within the community. He began to do extensive research into marijuana and CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid associated with numerous medical benefits and found that CBD was extremely effective in helping with pain relief, seizures, nausea, anxiety, and other pet ailments. By the beginning of 2015, Dr. Shu and his team had created VETCBD.
VETCBD was founded and is formulated specifically for pets by our veterinarian, Dr. Tim Shu. The dose and ratio of CBD to THC has been carefully formulated by Dr. Shu to provide medical benefits of cannabis to our pets, without the psychoactive effects. Since our product is a tincture, the dose is very specific for each patient depending on their weight, as developed by Dr. Shu. We use California-grown, organic medical marijuana to make VETCBD. Our product has only a small amount of THC to help enhance the therapeutic properties of the CBD. By utilizing the flower from CBD-rich cannabis strains, we are able to take advantage of all of the cannabinoids the plant has to offer. Our tincture is also pet safe because we do not use alcohol, which can be harmful to animals even in small amounts, nor do we add anything unnecessary. VETCBD is made with extra virgin olive oil and organically grown California cannabis only.
Our team is strongly dedicated to education, research, and advocacy. We are veterinary professionals and are available by phone or email every day of the week to speak with you, your staff, and your patients to answer specific questions regarding our product and your pets.
VETCBD tests their product to ensure quality, safety, and efficacy. Each bottle of VETCBD contains a 20:1 ratio of CBD to THC. All ingredients are human/medical grade.
In addition to serving the animal community, VETCBD has introduced pet advocacy to the cannabis industry with great success. Connecting with pet owners and cannabis patients alike, VETCBD has helped owners and pets all across California. Their product can be found in Alternative Herbal Health Services in West Hollywood, 420 Central in Orange County, The Cure in San Diego, Igzactly in San Francisco, and numerous other dispensaries throughout California. In order to strengthen their connection to the community, VETCBD encourages pet owners to send testimonials via email or social media. All feedback is appreciated and welcomed, the VETCBD loves to hear from you, and we love to share your pet's happy story with the community through our social media outlets.
