Leading Australia’s CBD space for pets
It’s difficult to see a furry patient or beloved pet suffer from conditions such as chronic pain or anxiety where conventional treatments have fallen short.

We’ve developed research and training programs to assist Australia’s veterinarians in accessing CBD treatments for their pet patients.

As with all human medication, some pets may experience side effects, which we train vets to look out for.
