As an herbalist and integrative veterinarian in Colorado since the early 80’s, Dr. Silver was able to observe first-hand the benefits of many herbal and nutraceutical approaches to pet health including the use of cannabinoid therapeutics in pets.

Dr. Silver has provided post-graduate education to veterinarians for the past 20 years, writes a blog for pet parents, has served on a Stakeholder’s commission for the Colorado Department of Agriculture to determine the suitability of industrial hemp for animal feed in Colorado, is on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Hemp Industries Association Research Foundation, and is currently working with the Hemp Industries Association to submit a Feed Additive Petition to FDA-CVM for hemp.
