Cannabis in Companion Animals

Pet Owner Hemp and Cannabis Survey

Despite the growing interest in medical cannabis for humans, very little is known about the use and role of cannabis in pets. Very few veterinary researchers and/or schools of veterinary medicine have conducted any significant research into the subject. The Equine and Comparative Neurology Research Group is beginning to lead this charge with an anonymous survey to gather information on this topic. The data will then be used to educate the public on the growing role of these products in the pet population and potentially lead to future research. 


  • Identify the types of companion animals receiving these products
  • Evaluate the use and types of products eing used in the pet population
  • Identify potential areas of owner perceived benefit and side effects in their pets
  • Use the information to help further understanding and the discussion of the use of cannabis in our pet population
  • Potentially help further additional areas of medical cannabis research and funding for companion animals
