Held at Hale Animal Health’s headquarters, anyone attending the event will learn more about the future of cannabidiol-based (CBD) products for New Zealand’s pets. The hosts will offer a peek into the extensive R&D work now underway in the quest for Hale’s CBD veterinary-prescribed medicines to achieve approval by the country’s regulator, ACVM (Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines).

A keynote speaker will share their extensive knowledge and experience in ‘cannabis for pets’, and Hale will use the event as an opportunity to launch its latest natural supplements range for cats and dogs, Best Life. “The veterinarians will get an exclusive VIP tour of Helius’ massive 8,800sqm state-of-the-art indoor facility and hear from a US-based vet experienced in treating pets with cannabis. It will be a fascinating night and I suspect a first for our country’s vets,” says Leila de Koster, Managing Director of Hale Animal Health.
