At ElleVet, our goal is to put science behind and create standards around the use of cannabinoids and animals.

The anecdotal evidence supporting the use of cannabinoids and hemp in dogs is extensive and compelling, but yet it remains largely unscientific.

To address this lack of scientific evidence, we partnered with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine to do a clinical trial to gather scientific data, to understand how our product works, to determine accurate dosing, and to find out if it is truly effective. Dr. Joe Wakshlag of Cornell University conducted the pharmacokinetic study and the subsequent clinical trial on dogs.  It worked!

The clinical trial was a double-blind placebo trial on dogs with multi-joint pain. The results were significant and almost every dog showed dramatic improvement. We wanted evidence on dosing and efficacy so we could stand behind our product with confidence and so veterinarians could trust and have confidence in our products. Today we have thousands of dogs on our product and over 80% of the dogs on ElleVet hemp CBD show significant improvement. The stories from veterinarians and pet owners are, quite honestly, amazing and get us up and out of bed every morning, excited about what we are doing for veterinary medicine. The best part is that we can confidently say that we are vet tested and vet endorsed.

We are continuing to invest in research and have three additional clinical trials underway with Dr. Wakshlag. We also have multiple field trials going on with practices and even zoos, all with the goal of gathering data and evidence to support the proper use of hemp CBD in animals.

It is important to us to have the support and backing of vets, and to provide a trusted and researched product for vets, so we are committed to selling through veterinarians. Pet owners can go to their vet and get a product that works, has been tested by veterinarians and where the dosing and the product are consistent. After the clinical trial, we tested our product in vet clinics across the country to gain some real life feedback before launching. As with the trial, the results of our test run in clinics were astonishingly positive across the board. The best experience for us is to visit a skeptical veterinarian and have her try the product on her own dog or a few patients, and come back as our biggest advocates.
