    Does Sleep Quality Affect Memory?


    An industry leader in animal welfare and trusted source for pet information in
    the Bay Area, Berkeley Humane is hosting Dogs, Cats, + Cannabis on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 6pm at the
    Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Berkeley Marina.
    This new forum is for pet owners/guardians to participate in the
    discussion on the potential dangers and benefits associated with
    administering cannabis to their animals suffering from health issues,
    something California veterinarians remain prohibited from discussing with
    their clients.
    Speaker Dr. Gary Richter, MS, DVM, is an award-winning veterinarian at
    Holistic Veterinary Care and the Montclair Veterinary Hospital and is also
    an expert in both medical and holistic treatment methods.
    Dr. Richter attests, “Cannabis products for pets are legal and readily available throughout California. Veterinarians
    must be allowed to do what we are trained to do – provide recommendations for the safe and effective treatment
    of pets.”
    “Pet owners and guardians are searching for solutions for their pets, but reliable information on cannabis
    treatment is hard to find,” said Jeffrey Zerwekh, Berkeley Humane’s Executive Director. “This event will help start
    the conversation in our community and help us get the answers we need for our animals.”
    Owner of Holistic Hound “Berkeley is a leader in so many things,” said Heidi Hill, Owner of Holistic Hound in
    Berkeley, “It is smart and timely to hold a public conversation about using all of the resources available to us to
    help pets that may be suffering.”
