Pet Med Labs was inspired by our founder Mitchell Cohen and his beloved dog Broder. Upon learning that Broder was diagnosed with lumbar cancer, Mitch immediately focused on helping to alleviate his beloved dog’s pain. A variety of traditional medications left Broder listless and groggy and created a host of unwanted side effects like abdominal pain and digestion issues.

Determined to find a better solution, Mitch set out to test as many alternative products as possible. He discovered the positive effects of CBD oil and its wonderful healing properties. Almost immediately, Broder was back to his old happy self without any of the harsh side effects from traditional medications. With that, Pet Med Labs was born.

Over the past several years, we’ve honed our recipes, partnered with leading members of the veterinary science community, sourced top of the line ingredient and manufacturing partners, and created the healthiest, all natural products to keep your dog living his best life.

He is also the former president of the Veterinary Botanical Medical Association, a former board member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, and the author of the book, Medical Marijuana and Your Pet. Dr. Silver has also provided post-graduate education to veterinarians for the past 20 years, writes blog for pet parents at, and has served on a Stakeholder’s commission for the Colorado Department of Agriculture to determine the suitability of industrial hemp for animal feed in Colorado.
