How much CBD should I give my dog?
Taking CBD can be pretty confusing for humans, so imagine how your dog feels when it comes time to take their daily dose! Just kidding, dogs don’t give CBD to themselves, obviously (unless they get really excited about their new bag of CBD treats and decide to rip it open and help themselves… YEESH), but it can definitely be difficult for a pet owner to determine just how much CBD is necessary for their pooches.
It’s especially hard because no pet is the same and that renders the same for CBD brands and products! So how much CBD should you give your dog? As with most of our questions, it really kind of depends on several things. Playing around with CBD dosages for humans is normal, because we all have different bodies and tolerances, as well as different medical conditions. We’re all snowflakes (in a good way, not a Fight Club way!) and this goes the same for dogs. If your dog has medical conditions, then their dosing is probably going to be higher than a dog using CBD for anxiety.
What I can give you is a basic measurement guide based on your dog’s weight and also based on our very own Pet Tincture:
Under 10lbs: .5 – 1mg per pound
10lbs – 15lbs: 1 – 2mg per pound
Over 25lbs: 2 – 3mg per pound
Now, keep in mind that this is based off of our 500mg Our Remedies Pet Tincture. This is what we’ve found to be a safe dosage for our doggies, and it’s veterinarian approved. Also note that this might be different if you choose to use another product, and in that case, just be sure to read their directions and adjust appropriately. Also, it’s recommended to double check with your veterinarian before giving your pup a new supplement.
One more thing, and I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH: please, please, please look into what you’re buying. Make sure that it is a quality product that can provide test results, as there can be so much sketchy CBD out there in this big ol’ world that now loves that CBD life.
Cheers to you and your dog’s healthy future!
