So, you already know of the many benefits that CBD can offer your pet, from alleviating anxiety and stress, to chronic pain and inflammation, CBD for pets has a wide range of uses. But how do you get your fluffy family member to actually take it? Lucky for you, we are one step ahead! We have created delicious flavors that your dog or cat will love, which will make taking their CBD oil seem more like a treat than chore.
How Much CBD Should I Give My Cat or Dog?
Before giving your pet CBD oil, you have to first find out what their proper dosage should be. If you already know your pet’s weight, this is very simple. If not, if your pet is light enough to be picked up, the easiest way to get their accurate weight is to hold them while weighing yourself, then weigh yourself separately and take the difference.
The recommended dosage for cats and dogs is generally between 1-3mg for every 10 pounds of body weight. The range from 1-3mg depends on the severity of your pet’s ailments and their overall tolerance levels. It is recommended to start at the lower end of this scale and slowly increase to find their perfect dosage.
Tips to Give Your Pet CBD Oil
Because our products come directly in oil form, you won’t have to worry about pill pockets or having to hide it in their food. Most dogs love getting their CBD oil directly from the tincture. This should be presented as a treat or reward for doing something good so that they form a positive association with it. However, if your cat or dog is a bit more fussy, you can simply mix the oil into their usual meal.
If you’re feeling extra creative, you can even create your own homemade treats with CBD oil. CBD pet recipes such as peanut butter biscuits and no-bake pumpkin spice treats are a real hit with the pups. Cats, on the other hand, seem to really love some homemade CBD-infused sweet potato or tuna-based snacks.
As always, it is recommended that your pet’s specific situation be evaluated by a veterinarian. Ask your vet about how adding CBD oil to your pet’s care regimen can help manage their symptoms. Interested in more pet and CBD related information? Check out Gift of Life’s CBD Pet Guide for more!
