Dr. Joseph Wakshlag, DVM, Ph. D, DACVN, DACVSMR, has been given the position of Chief Medical Officer at ElleVet Sciences as per recent press release.
This is a milestone for ElleVet Sciences, as Dr. Wakshlag is popularly known as the first-ever veterinarian to have concluded that the use of cannabidiol (CBD) is significantly effective for pets.
In a 2018 study conducted by the doctor et al., which explored the CBD’s effectiveness in aiding dogs with osteoarthritis (i.e. most common form of arthritis that affects one’s joints in the hands, knees, hips and spinal regions), concluded that a serving of 2mg per kg twice daily can increase both comfort and activity levels in said dogs.
ElleVet shouldn’t be taken so lightly either, as their partnership in a clinical trial with vets at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine found that CBD was effective in 80 percent of dogs.
