I'm Dr. Tim Shu, I make medical cannabis for animals. Pets can also benefit from cannabis, AMA!
My name is Dr. Tim Shu and I'm the founder and veterinarian behind VETCBD. We create medical cannabis products for pets to help relieve pain, anxiety, inflammation, nausea, seizures, and cognitive dysfunction. Many people are unaware that pets can safely and effectively benefit from cannabis using proper formulation and dosing. And it's not just dogs and cats that can benefit, we've had ferrets, rabbits, pigs, rodents, and horses find therapeutic relief through cannabinoid therapy. I started VETCBD because as healthcare providers we should explore all potential therapeutic options for our clients, and if cannabis offers therapeutic benefits for animals, it is our duty to thoroughly evaluate that potential.
Our work has been featured by outlets such as The Today Show and CNBC.
I'm also here to raise awareness for California's Assembly Bill 2215, introduced by Assembly Member [Ash Kalra] (https://www.facebook.com/asmashkalra). Currently veterinarians are barred from discussing or recommending cannabinoid therapy for pets, despite growing evidence that pets can greatly benefit from it. AB 2215 will allow for California veterinarians to discuss and recommend cannabis as a potential treatment modality.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FARM
Our passion is to elevate and promote pet health and well-being and the important role they play in our families. We do this by formulating authentic supplements for our furry buddies from locally sourced, earth-grown ingredients. We make all of our products in Denver, CO especially Organic CBD Oil for Pets, where we are able to source ingredients like our organic hemp extract locally. By partnering with local farms and suppliers we will never sacrifice the quality of our products and maintain a standard of excellence that is trusted by retailers and pet parents.
My Labrador pulled a tendon and it hadn’t recovered in a couple days so we took him into the vet who was concerned that it might be a bigger problem. Anxious to get him back to normal and hoping it wasn’t anything serious I put him on your pumpkin treats. He loved them and within 2 days recovered and the vet gave him a clean bill of health. I’m always recommending your product!”
Earth Buddy is like a magic potion! Millie has really changed in the past week or so. She’s more relaxed and affectionate. Last night for the first time in her life she seemed to want more and more pets so I picked her up and put her on my lap in my recliner while I watched the golden globes. Before the few times I put her on my lap she resisted me picking her up and then sat rigid waiting for a chance to get off. This time she snuggled in and actually purred for quite a while and eventually fell asleep. It was really amazing. The only one upset by this was my kitty who was miffed at being replaced on my lap.”
“My babies Cleo (12) and Sadie (15) have been enjoying the benefits of Earth Buddy 500mg Hemp Extract for over a year now and the benefits are incredible! Sadie uses it for discomfort and Cleo uses it for her stress. I’m a lifelong happy customer and my girls are proof!
This product has been a difference-maker in the quality of life in my 18-year-old GSD/Boxer mix! She has regained some early morning mobility and her appetite has improved! I have never had an easier time of supplementing a pet! I think she understands the correlation in taking the oil and feeling better. Thank you so much.
“The ingredients are quite wholesome and simple. I love the shape of them! AND THE SMELL! They smell like a sweet, apple pie! It’s safe to say that Ruger and I will be purchasing another bag when we run out!”
What a great & compassionate company! My dog Clyde gets stressed out from thunder and fireworks & your products have helped him so much this year! I can also tell from my own experiences looking to get CBD, that your legit prices reflect the compassion you have to help dogs. Thank you! & shout out to Lewis & Bark in Littleton for having your products!
