In California, a veterinarian can lose their license for violating state laws or regulations, or for engaging in professional misconduct. As of 2023, the use of CBD in animals is still considered somewhat controversial and there is a lack of scientific research and FDA approval for CBD as a treatment in animals.
It is also important to note that in California, veterinarians are not allowed to prescribe or dispense any drugs that are not approved by the FDA. Because CBD products are not FDA-approved for use in animals, veterinarians in California may be hesitant to recommend or use them, as it could put their license at risk if they are found to be in violation of state laws or regulations.
However, It's important to note that this information is subject to change as laws and regulations are constantly evolving and it's always best to consult with a veterinarian for the most current information.
