CBDs and our petsCBD's And Our Pets
CBD's (Cannabidiol) are derived from the hemp plant and there's anecdotal evidence that it may help pets suffering from many problems, including, and certainly not limited to, anxiety, allergies, seizures, hot spots and so much more. The landscape is confusing though. Many retailers are hopping on the bandwagon. While there are honest merchants, there are also many that rely on the lack of certification to sell their CBD products. Dr. Robert Dove and Medical Cannabis Expert Angela Ardolino will help you parse through the misinformation and select a product that can help your pet live a healthier and happier life.

Healthy Dog Euthanized To Be Buried With Owner
Emma was a healthy Shih Tzu mix that was recently euthanized after her late owner left explicit instructions for the dog to be put down, cremated and laid to rest with her. Despite the ethical issue, burying animal remains with human remains in the same cemetery plot is against the law. And finding a vet to put down an otherwise healthy pet isn't easy to do. Many refused, before the executor of the will found a vet that did euthanize healthy Emma. Now, At least one state lawmaker in the state is considering legislation to close the loopholes and forever end the practice in Virginia.

Pet Owners May Soon Get Medical Marijuana For Pets
The California Senate has voted 33-0 to let pet owners 18 and older purchase medical marijuana for their animals if they have a recommendation from a veterinarian who has completed a specific course. The bill would give veterinarians the same protections as doctors who recommend marijuana for human patients. This will prevent the Veterinarian Medical Board from disciplining veterinarians who recommend marijuana. The bill now goes to the state Assembly.

Dr. Robin Ganzert has the antidote to America's stress problem on Animal RadioAn Antidote To America's Stress
Last year, a majority of Americans reported experiencing stresses "during a lot of the day," according to Gallup's recently released Global Emotions Report. Sadly, we're global leaders in feeling agitated - there are only three countries in the world that are more stressed out than the United States. But according to American Humane CEO Dr. Robin Ganzert there's scientific evidence of an antidote - a healthy dose of pet love. To remedy some of the anxiety plaguing America, individuals should cultivate and nurture bonds with animals.

Washington State May Ban Pet Leasing
Washington State has had enough of pets, mostly dogs, serving as collateral on a loan. Strange as it sounds, a long-term lease is a new type of financing arrangement for cash-strapped buyers of pedigreed dogs and cats or mixed-breed "designer" pets. But soon such contracts will be illegal in the state. This year, state legislators have banned the use of dogs or cats as collateral in a consumer lease or secured transaction. If Gov. Jay Inslee signs the bill as expected, Washington will join California, Nevada and New York in outlawing the practice.

What Happens To The Dog When You're Not Married?
A cute, cuddly, bundle of joy at the center of a bitter custody battle wasn't in the courtroom as lawyers argued her fate before the Maine Supreme Court. That's because dogs are not allowed in court. The dog in this case is Honey and her human mom wants custody of the Lab-Boxer mix she used to share with her former boyfriend. Pets are considered property in 50 states, with only three states (Alaska, Illinois and California) having specific laws that address pet custody when a marriage dissolves. However, no state has a statute dealing with pets when an unmarried couple breaks up.

New Bill Addresses Pets During Divorce
In Pennsylvania, former attorney and now state Rep. Anita Kulik has introduced H.B. 1432, which would establish the new areas of concern for judges to consider when deciding guardianship of a pet in divorce cases. If the bill passes, the judge would be allowed to consider: whether the animal was acquired prior to or during the marriage; the basic, daily needs of the animal; who generally gets veterinary care and social interaction for the animal; who deals with local and state regulations, such as licensing; and who has the greater ability to financially support the pet.

Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against Pet Food Company
A federal judge has dismissed a multi-million-dollar lawsuit filed against Ainsworth Pet Nutrition (which is owned by Smucker's) for alleged false and deceptive advertising of its Rachael Ray Nutrish dog food. The suit claimed Ainsworth's labeling of Rachael Ray Nutrish, as natural food for dogs was false, deceptive and misleading. Independent laboratory tests found Glyphosate, a chemical weed killer such as RoundUp, was present in the products. The judge said, "The presence of negligible amounts of Glyphosate in a dog food product that do not have harmful, 'toxic,' or 'carcinogenic' effects is not likely to affect consumers' decisions in purchasing the product and is thus not material." Then for the same reasons, Judge Stanton dismissed the breach of warranty claim ruling, "A reasonable consumer would not interpret the label 'natural' as warranting that the products contain no amount of Glyphosate."

Parrot Reserves His Right To Be Silent
A parrot has been taken into custody after nearly ruining a police raid, because the bird had been trained to be a lookout for his owners who were arrested on suspicion of dealing crack. When police showed up, the bird repeatedly began squawking a phrase that means "Mama, Police!" But, it seems that is all the bird knows. Police took it into custody and said that in the three weeks they had the bird at the police station, the parrot said nothing. Law enforcement claims that there had already been an estimated 1,700 birds seized for having been trained to alert their owners if police approached.

Puppy Mill Pet Shops Under Fire
Animal Kingdom Pet Shop, which has a small chain of stores in Central California, is facing yet another lawsuit. This one is from a woman who bought a Golden-Doodle from one of the stores for $2,100. She claims that soon after she got her new pet, it started having major medical issues, including bilateral hip dysplasia. Her medical costs have totaled more than $17,000. The pet store has reimbursed her for only $2,900, so she is taking the owners to court, asking for $10,000 in damages. The pet store is also facing a lawsuit filed by the Animal Legal Defense Fund and another organization alleging involvement in a "puppy laundering scheme."
