ElleVet Sciences – Hemp, CBD and Dogs: what is it and does your dog need it?
The hemp plant has become a hot topic for human and animal health, particularly CBD. But is it true these compounds have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that can help manage arthritis and chronic pain in older dogs? Does it really work… or is it just a fad?
To answer that question, scientists at Ellevet Sciences partnered in a double-blinded placebo clinical trial with veterinarians at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. The results of that study — the effects of ElleVet’s hemp CBD on older dogs with arthritis — were groundbreaking.
85% of the dogs who took ElleVet CBD oil had significant or dramatic improvement in their pain and mobility, compared to the dogs who took the placebo. ElleVet is currently conducting three more trials in oncology, seizures and postoperative pain.
