Introducing Our Cheif Veterinary Officer Dr. Zac

We are so proud to announce the appointment of Dr. Zac Pilossoph, Fear-Free Certified DVM, CAVM, and CBD Professional, as the company’s new Chief Veterinary Officer! As the demand for pet products containing cannabidiol (CBD) continues to skyrocket, Dr. Pilossoph brings experience as a global veterinary cannabis educational expert to CBD Dog Health’s hemp-derived solutions for pet parents nationwide.

Chief Veterinary Officer

As one of the world’s most cannabis-focused vets, Dr. Pilossoph will play a vital role in overseeing the quality, control and consistency of CBD Dog Health’s holistic hemp product lines – including CBD oils, topicals and treats specially made to help relieve and heal pets naturally.

We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Zac Pilossoph to CBD Dog Health, and are confident that his knowledge in cannabis-based medicines for animals will propel the brand, and overall usage of CBD treatments for pets, forward. At the core of CBD Dog Health is our commitment to educating the public on how CBD helps our furry friends live their best possible life. With the addition of Dr. Pilossoph, we will elevate our position as the authoritative source in the pet cannabis industry, and set the category standard for full spectrum CBD products for dogs and cats.”

Why Dr. Zac?

Dr. Pilossoph began proactively studying medical cannabis for animals only a couple years after graduating top of his class from the Tufts University Veterinary School of Medicine. Frustrated by the difficulty he saw pet parents experiencing when trying to find the right information about CBD, Dr. Pilossoph dedicated himself to advocating and educating on evidence-based information that can help guide the therapeutic uses of medicinal cannabis on animals. As a nationally recognized veterinary professional and Certified CBD Professional Educator from CBD Training Academy, Dr. Pilossoph provides more confidence for pet parents and veterinarians on the medical aspects of cannabis.

 “Joining CBD Dog Health provides another platform for me to impart as much guidance as legally possible on how pets can transition to cannabis treatments and more natural therapeutic regimens,” said Dr. Pilossoph. “Together with Angela, I am excited to continue to educate and advance the industry so pet parents have the option to help their dogs and cats with properly vetted CBD products.”
