Cannabis for canines by Beverly A Potter( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our beloved dogs can suffer aches, pains, anxiety attacks, and even depression, just as we do. Vets often prescribe powerful pharmaceuticals like opioids that can be addictive. [This book] explores medicinal cannabis, the emerging alternative to such strong pharmaceuticals. Should your dog suffer from seizures, anxiety, eating upsets, cancer, lethargy, or other ailments, cannabis therapeutics may support your vet's treatment. While proponents of cannabis herald a long list of health benefits for our dogs, how cannabis interacts with canine biology is not fully understood. What is known is that cannabis supplementation promotes canine wellness, but owners must be cautious because cannabis can have a more pronounced impact on dogs than it does on humans. The secret to the wonders of cannabis therapeutics is the endocannabinoid system (ECS) found throughout the body in humans as well as in dogs, including in the skin and muscles, nerve cells, immune system, and brain. Cannabinoids mimic naturally-generated neurochemicals to bind to ECS receptor sites to ignite biological processes, like quieting spasms, soothing anxiety, or reducing inflammation. Dosing is complicated and can be confusing. Because dogs are smaller than humans they weigh less, including big dogs, and need much lower doses than we humans do. Additionally canine bodies are more sensitive to smaller doses, so neither human cannabis products--marijuana--nor dosing schedules for humans should ever be used with your dog. CANNABIS FOR CANINES delves into dosing complexity, explains how to monitor your dog's response to cannabis therapeutics, and how to use monitoring feedback to tailor and fine-tune the dose. Packed with useful information, CANNABIS FOR CANINES is a must read to learn how to use medicinal cannabis to improve your beloved dog's health and quality of life."--Dust jacket
Prescription drug abuse by Mark James Estren( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Severe, chronic pain affects at least 116 million Americans every year. But there are fewer than 4,000 pain specialists in the United States, and many insurers won't cover physical therapy. But powerful pain medicines? They will certainly cover those. Prescriptions for powerful pain killers doubled between 1994 and 2008 — and abuse skyrocketed as well. The grim headlines are all too familiar. Celebrities such as Whitney Houston die of overdoses. Teens mix legitimate medicines — and pay with their lives. Heavy-handed government attempts to crack down on pain and anxiety medications have terrori
