Miles, a 12-year-old Labrador retriever mix, was slowly dying of cancer. His owner, after seeing the effect that narcotic painkillers such as tramadol were having on Miles, decided to try something else: medical marijuana.
Within hours of taking a tincture of marijuana from a medical pot dispensary in Los Angeles, Miles’ appetite returned, he stopped vomiting and began walking and running around. “It couldn’t have been a coincidence,” his owner told the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
As marijuana’s once-ironclad restrictions become more relaxed, and researchers begin to find more therapeutic uses for the formerly banned substance, pet owners around the world are wondering: Is pot good for my pet?
