Cannabis for End of Life in Dogs and Cats

What happens at the end of a life is very important. It can be so difficult, heartbreaking, but if you can ensure that your dog or cat is comfortable and not in pain, then it makes all the difference.

I have seen the cannabinoids to be very helpful in decreasing inflammation and providing natural pain relief.

Could cannabis play a role in geriatric, palliative veterinary care? The focus of palliative and hospice care is to achieve the best quality of life possible for the patient and the family, but veterinarians are often challenged to balance “what we can do" with “what we should do."

Potential of Cannabis in Veterinary Care

Medical cannabis, long used for its therapeutic properties, is now gaining attention for its application in veterinary care. Despite legal restrictions, states like California have begun to allow veterinarians to discuss its use. This shift suggests a growing recognition of cannabis’s benefits for animals, particularly in enhancing the human-animal bond and reducing stress for both pets and owners during their increased time at home due to COVID-19.

How Cannabis Works: The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The cannabis plant contains over 400 chemical compounds, which can vary significantly in their composition. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is pivotal in how these compounds interact within the body, influencing various organ systems through receptors such as CB1 and CB2.

Therapeutic Applications of Cannabis

  1. Chronic Pain and Osteoarthritis: Cannabis has shown promise in reducing pain and improving mobility in animals suffering from chronic conditions like osteoarthritis.

  2. Cognitive Dysfunction and Anxiety: Hemp-derived CBD products are widely used to manage age-related behavioral changes and anxiety in senior pets, with many owners reporting significant improvements.

  3. Cancer Treatment and Support: Research indicates that cannabinoids can impact tumor growth and provide palliative support by managing symptoms such as pain, nausea, appetite loss, and mood disturbances.

Personal Insights and Recommendations

Dr. Sarah Silcox, a veterinary cannabis expert, shares her personal experience with her dog, Lewis, who benefited from cannabis during his battle with cancer. While it was not a cure, cannabis notably improved his quality of life. For those with pets facing similar challenges, Dr. Silcox recommends exploring CBD with THC tinctures, available in select regions.


As research and legal frameworks evolve, the potential of cannabis to significantly improve the quality of life for aging and ailing pets continues to grow. For pet owners and veterinarians alike, staying informed and considerate of cannabis’s benefits could be a key component in compassionate veterinary care.

If you are considering cannabis for an arthritic pet or one experiencing cognitive dysfunction, consider Dr. Silcox’s CBD for dogs and cats. It’s a whole plant extract that includes beneficial cannabinoids, with hemp seed oil as the carrier oil. Get your 10%-20% OFF bottle today through the provided link.

  1. I want to Deeply Thank you Dr. Andrew Jones for ALL YOUR AMAZING generous selfless love and care you have provided me and my Precious Milo for the last few years! I’ve used your L- theanine treatment to help my moms dog with Prolapsed Trachea, your endless safe flea remedies, your Frankincense oil for rub downs on my Milo and so many more! I used your CBD oil for him during his last 6 months of life as my vet allowed me to provide Hospice care. She had wanted to euthanize him for at least a year, but I wasn’t ready to do that. He was my 18 yr old male chihuahua therapy partner. Had Many medical issues arthritis front paws and elbow, liver tumor, sludge in gall bladder, had undergone numerous surgical external tumor growth removals. Had lost significant sight, but he kept surprising me days getting up walking, they progressed a little at a time daily. I was blessed and so very fortunate to use your CBD oil, L- theanine along with Ursidol to keep him comfortable. As painful as it was I had to euthanize him on 9-11-23. A day painfully sad but also known for so much bravery. So I said goodbye to My Precious Hero Milo of 18yrs.
    I write this cause I want owners to know that I dedicated myself to providing for Milo, he provided so much for me and I was determined to do the same, until he couldn’t go anymore. His doctor worked with me, I have medical knowledge and experience in providing hospice. I wouldn’t change anything of how my story ends with my Precious Milo, and I Pray that more owners can do the same!
    Eternally Grateful to you Dr. Jones for clicking on your video one day so many years ago,
    Janette and Milo Martinez
