VERNON, British Columbia — Conny Mosley, DVM, DACVAA, CVA, joined True Leaf Medicine International Ltd. May 14 to help its pet wellness brand, True Leaf Pet, develop hemp-based products for companion animals. Mosley will join Katherine Kramer DVM, DABVP, CVA, CVTP, on the True Leaf Veterinary Advisory Board.

Mosley is currently the director and VP of the Canadian Association of Veterinary Cannabinoid Medicine (CAVCM) and leads the integrative pain management division of the VCA Canada 404 Veterinary Emergency and Referral Hospital in Newmarket, Ontario.

“We are proud to welcome another top veterinarian dedicated to advancing cannabis-based therapies for pets to the True Leaf Veterinary Advisory Board,” said Darcy Bomford, founder and CEO of True Leaf. “Our commitment to be the leading global cannabis-for-pets brand starts with product excellence. We are working side-by-side with our veterinary advisors to research and develop the safest, most effective cannabis products for pets. Dr. Mosley will be a key member of our team as we work towards launching a best-to-market CBD product for pets and begin development on a veterinary exclusive line.”

With 20 years of veterinary experience, Mosley is an advocate for cannabis-based animal therapies and encourages the classification of CBD as a veterinary health product through her work with the CAVCM, as well as the Canada Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA).

“Veterinary clinics across the country are seeing strong client demand for legal and effective medicinal cannabis products for pets,” Mosley said. “I joined True Leaf because its team of pet industry veterans are at the forefront of evidence-based product development. In this new role, I look forward to continuing research on cannabinoid medicine to target specific pet health challenges, educating the veterinary community and pet parents on the benefits of cannabis for pets, and helping guide the development of cannabis products that veterinarians can trust.”
