As humans begin to explore psychedelic medicine applications, we anticipate that our animals will have increased risk of exposure.  Our lack of information does not prevent the exposure of our patients to these substances.  As a community of veterinary practitioners, we need to remain informed about the risks as well as potential benefits to our patients. 

 

Our clients and our patients are looking to us for answers as the field of psychedelic medicine unfolds - we better get to work!
