Every day, folks who live in medical marijuana-legal states with their beloved pets are asking the question: “Will medical marijuana help my p t who is suffering?” This book answers those questions and many others y u may not have known to ask. Between routine care and those little surprises, your pet’s medical bills can get expensive. Here are some ways to find less expensive — or even free — vet care.Dr. Robert J Silver is a licensed and nationally-renowned holistic veterinarian, who practiced in Colorado throughout the legalization of marijuana in that state for both medical and recreational purposes. As a result of these unique clinical experiences with dogs and cats, whose owners have given them medical marijuana since 2000, Dr. Silver was able to gain experience and knowledge in the many potential clinical applications for this new, exciting and emerging herbal drug therapy. In his book, he shares with you his vast knowledge of the medicinal use of marijuana and hemp in pets. Having to look into a companion animal's eyes and know that you cannot afford to pay for their medical care is one of the most heartbreaking situations any pet owner can ever face.

These views allow the information from two different exams to be correlated and interpreted on one image, leading to more precise information and accurate diagnoses. In addition, manufacturers are now making single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) units that are able to perform both imaging exams at the same time. An emerging imaging technology, but not readily available at this time is PET/MRI.
