Learning from Our Neighbors: Cannabis in Canada
Sarah Silcox, DVM
Dr. Sarah Silcox is a pioneer in the world of veterinary cannabis use, and is one of the founding directors, and the current President of the Canadian Association of Veterinary Cannabinoid Medicine.
A small animal veterinarian with over 20 years of clinical experience, Dr. Silcox has been active in both general and emergency practice, founded her region’s first holistic pet care practice, and is currently operating the region’s first veterinary practice dedicated to palliative, hospice, and end-of-life care for pets.
A passionate advocate for the veterinary use of cannabis and cannabinoid medicine, her interest in the potential benefits of medical cannabis for pets reaches back several years. She is excited about the changes in Canadian legislation and hopes that they will encourage further research in this area, and improve her clients’ access to such a valuable herbal medicine for pets.
