A Seattle company, Medical Marijuana Delivery Systems has developed a transdermal marijuana patch called Tetracan for dogs, cats, & horses. This could be great news for pain management in animals, especially cats since many pain medications are toxic to felines.
Unfortunately veterinarians may have difficulty prescribing the patch in the U.S. when it becomes available. The Department of Justice is apparently raiding licensed marijuana dispensaries & growers per a memo released in June stating commercial operations could face federal charges even if medical marijuana is legal in their state. I’ve got to say, this DOJ memo has stupid written all over it.
