Phytocannabinoid Medicine

Dr. Frits Verzijlenberg is a member of the  Canadian Association of Veterinary Cannabinoid Medicine, CAVCM 


Our veterinarians cannot prescribe, recommend or suggest cannabinoid products; however, we would be happy to give you guidance on phytocannabinoids for your pet (ie: CBD and THC).

There is no industry regulatory body for cannabis, so it is up to the company you order from to adhere to FDA's Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations. CGMP assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of drug products
