With the company experiencing strong growth, Pets Choice Limited have recently established a new Veterinary Division, with a ManSA license granted by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD), allowing the company to develop a range of Cannabidiol (CBD) oral dosage formats capable of being prescribed under the cascade.

Founded in 1987, Pets Choice are now one of the UK’s leading pet product suppliers, with a range of market-leading pet brands supplied into the retail, pet specialist and veterinary sector, including a range of antiparasitic licenced veterinary medicines. This latest diversification into unlicenced veterinary medicines however will allow the company to focus on the immediate unmet needs of the veterinary sector, with a particular focus on emerging therapy areas such as CBD for example.

“Veterinary professionals across the world increasingly prescribing CBD products to their patients for a variety of health conditions including osteoarthritis, epilepsy, pain management and a variety of other behavioural issues.” said Glesni Owen, Head of Veterinary Sales. “Research into the use of CBD is advancing daily which provides veterinary professionals with an increased knowledge base to help clients make informed decisions about treating their pets.”

Pets Choice have been working closely with veterinary professionals in the United States where CBD therapy is far more widely prescribed, collating and sharing the latest supporting evidence and guidance for vets here in the UK to feel comfortable discussing it with their clients.

“We have developed a CPD-accredited educational webinar and also recorded a podcast with the Vet Times, interviewing highly-respected US-based veterinarian Jeffrey Powers, who has extensive experience prescribing CBD to his patients.” added Glesni. “As a board member of the Veterinary Cannabis Society, Jeff is a real subject matter expert and was able to speak passionately and confidently about his experiences with CBD, addressing areas such as safety, efficacy and dosage administration.”
