Dr. Crystal Eng Appointed as PrimeMyBody’s Veterinary Medical Advisor
We are thrilled to announce Crystal Eng, DVM has been appointed as PrimeMyBody’s Veterinary Medical Advisor. Dr. Eng will principally monitor the efficacy and continued safety standards of PMB’s recently released PrimeMyPet hemp and health blend for cats and dogs.
In line with PrimeMyBody’s continued mission to establish proven efficacy standards in the hemp market, Dr. Eng will oversee primary studies and clinical trials of PrimeMyPets’ effectiveness. Dr. Eng’s clinical trials will be conducted to the highest pharmaceutical-level clinical standards.
On her PrimeMyPet clinical trials, Dr. Eng says, “The long-term studies are really going to focus on specific diseases and also general concerns that we may have in our senior pets.”
Dr. Eng is presently the Resident in Veterinary Ophthalmology at the Veterinary Eye Institute in Plano, Texas. In conjunction with her work in Veterinary Ophthalmology, Dr. Eng has a prominent research background in animal reproductive endocrinology, genetics, and hormone observation. She has worked with a number of exotic and endangered animal species, specifically elephants in zoo environments. Prior to the Veterinary Eye Institute, she worked in the high-paced critical and emergency care department at the Center for Veterinary Specialty and in emergency medicine at the Emergency Animal Hospital in Plano, Texas.
An advocate for phytocannabinoid and hemp oil use as a way to restore and preserve animals’ quality of life, Dr. Eng has introduced PrimeMyPet to her patients and also her own pets. On PrimeMyPet as a viable wellness product for dogs and cats, Dr. Eng says,
“I think it’s wonderful people are more inclined to try something natural for the health of their pets rather than pharmaceuticals. This particular product is specifically made to optimize wellness in our beloved four-legged family members. PrimeMyPet has fantastic ingredients that are great for immune support, cardiovascular health, arthritis and allergies. We’ve also seen great changes in calming behaviors. This is a blend where you’re not just getting one product you’re getting multiple products. It’s a perfect example of where veterinary health and preventative care is shifting.”
A fairly nascent product in the veterinary field, interest and use of hemp oil and phytocannabinoids for pet and animal health has steadily increased in recent years. Dr. Eng says,
“There is huge interest in the vet field now for CBD and hemp and it’s exciting because the more vets who can educate and help people understand and guide pet owners to include hemp oil as a preventative-care and wellness opportunity the better. The hard part with any integrative type of medicine is they don’t teach you this in school or training. But the fact is there are large universities, like Cornell University, that are picking this up and want to use hemp and figure out more about it.”
Dr. Eng’s work with pets and animals started well before her formal veterinary education when she was just a child. Her passion for pet care stems from a life-long interest in optimizing the quality of life of pets, who are considered by most of her patients’ owners to be members of their families.
On her relationship with animals and her pet patients, Dr. Eng says, “Each individual patient is very special to me. I love all my pet patients and the people who love their pets so much. I have full on relationships with my patients and their owners. Animals really are amazing. I think each individual pet is very special and each individual pet parent is special. Most people want the best for their pets and want their pets to live the fullest life possible. I just love animals and the caring, fulfilling relationships we have with them.”
