Although pets don't often show it - a lot of pets can and do feel pain.
Which was definitely the case for veterinarian Dr. Doug Kramer after his precious pet dog was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Wanting to make sure the dog lived the rest of its life happy - Kramer decided to give the dog medical marijuana which is legal in the state of California.
And although people may frown upon using medical marijuana on a pet dog, PETA actually is for using marijuana upon one's own pets as long as it for medicinal purposes. It is not medicine to just blow smoke in your dog's face which is definitely not cool!
Kramer is hoping to develop a type of medical marijuana for animals that is totally safe to use.
Here's what he said:
“My goal is to have a pain medication somewhere between aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs without knocking your dog out."
Here's hoping to his success!
Marijuana can be a medicine even if not everyone uses it as such!
