If Drug Companies have their way, you can expect a BUNCH of cures for what ails your pets. Also, expect it to be expensive.
Some of the cures are coming in the form of cannabis drugs. You may have read my earlier post on CBD and your pets. It's a proven fact that CBD has been useful for treating many conditions with Fido and Fluffy. Since the placebo effect isn't factored with your pets, improvement in their respective health situations shows us the favorable use of CBD for pets.
Do you have a pet? Has your pet shown signs of ill health? Arthritis, seizures, and other conditions, as with humans, have afflicted dogs, cats and other animals. The cures from our pharmaceutical companies have helped many of our pets. Further research and testing with CBD and other cannabinoids has shown even more promise for pet cures. But at what cost to consumers?
Pharmaceutical companies are likely to package something natural, such as CBD oil extract (a simple cannabinoid extract from the Hemp plant) along with other (proprietary) chemicals to make a more marketable product. Often, the added chemicals to the CBD are unnecessary for the drug to be effective. But the added chemicals make the drug suitable for patent protection - and added revenue for the drug companies. If you "juice" a natural product, you can charge more for it.
It's great that the discoveries of cures for pets have been leading to helping people. Let's be sure that the natural products remain available for pets and people alike.
