Can I Use A CBD Product For My Pet?
Can I Use a CBD Product for my Pet?
Yes, but it must be made absolutely clear that administration of CBD to an animal is subject to veterinary prescription.
Due to regulation by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate products containing CBD are considered veterinary medicines and therefore cannot be advertised or sold for use on animals in the UK without the marketing authorisations. As there are currently no CBD products authorised in the UK for veterinary use, a veterinary surgeon may prescribe a legally obtained human CBD product under the provisions of the prescribing cascade.
If you are considering giving a CBD based product to your animal, talk to your vet and invite them to contact us. We will be happy to assist them with any questions they might have.
