National Report — A Seattle company is working on the development of a “pot patch” for pain control in dogs, cats and horses that could be rolled out to the market by the end of the year.
While it’s reported that medical marijuana use in people has gained in popularity in last few years, a veterinary pain management expert says transdermal use of marijuana could have a place in a veterinarian’s armamentarium.
The patent rights for the marijuana patch were obtained in February by Medical Marijuana Delivery Systems (MMDS) of Seattle. The product will be marketed under the name Tetracan, according to the company, for transcutaneous delivery of medical marijuana to humans and animals.
