According to AOL.com, Dr. Doug Kramer, aka “The Vet Guru” of Chatsworth, CA passed away on Thursday Aug 22, 2013. He was only 36 years old. So far I haven’t been able to find any information on the cause of death.. His obituary doesn’t specify, but does request donations be made to a cancer organization.
Dr. Kramer was a pioneer in medical marijuana for pets suffering from pain and/or cancer. He has been featured on pet friendly sites like Dogster and Paw Nation. I’m sure he endured a lot of criticism for his efforts. Personally speaking, I think it is a terrible loss, and hope that others take up the cause and continue to pioneer the research into this controversial “wonder herb” as it pertains to animals.
