cbd dosing guide for dogs

CBD, or Cannabidiol, can deliver powerful wellness benefits to your furry friend. When taken correctly, your pup may experience calm and relaxation, reduced stress, improved skin and coat and more. Every pup is unique and may need a different amount of CBD based on his size and the severity of his issues, but we recommend one to two servings per day. Our CBD dosing chart for dogs steers you in the right direction when giving CBD to your furry friend.

A 10-lb Shih Tzu experiencing symptoms of stress would need a 2 mg serving of CBD. This translates to 8, 4 and 2 drops of 150, 375 and 1,000 mg CBD Oil respectively.

We recommend using a higher potency product for larger pets. This method is more cost efficient, especially for pets that need several drops. By giving your pet less drops per serving, you get the most bang for your buck and can give him accurate servings quickly and easily.

Let’s look at an example: Clifford is a 115-lb rottweiler. Your wallet would benefit more from 14 drops of 1,000 milligram CBD Oil once or twice daily rather than 4 full droppers plus 12 more drops of the 150 milligram oil. A higher-potency pet CBD Oil is also easier to administer compared to a lower-potency product, since keeping track of administered drops and maintaining your pup’s attention can be tedious. Regardless of concentration, a proper serving of CBD may be beneficial for Clifford.

How Many CBD Pet Treats Should I Give My Dog?

You can give your pup these savory snacks to reward him with the wellness benefits of CBD. Our CBD Dog Biscuits contain 10mg of premium CBD per treat, so refer to our handy dosing calculator above to determine the proper number of treats to give your pup based on his weight. If your dog is too small for the 10mg serving of CBD in a full biscuit, you can break a biscuit into pieces for more precise dosing.

How Much CBD Is Too Much CBD?

Research suggests CBD usage can be beneficial, but it’s important to know the proper serving size. Did your pup get to the CBD and take the whole bottle at once? He may be a little more tired than usual, but that’s nothing a good nap won’t fix. There is no chance of overdose associated with this compound, so rest assured that CBD will not have fatal effects.
