How Much CBD should you give your Pet?

Choosing the correct CBD dose for your dog can be pretty confusing. First of all, each company’s dosing guidelines can vary widely because the concentration of CBD varies in the oils they produce.

The dosage can also differ depending on the condition you’re trying to treat. For example, higher doses are typically recommended for more serious health conditions and lower doses for occasional anxiety or general well-being.

And of course, you have your dog’s weight and underlying health issues to take into consideration.

With no standard guidelines or regulated doses, how do you know how much CBD oil to give your dog? 

Based on the current information available we recommend starting with 0.2mg of CBD per kilogram twice a day for the first week. This can be increased by 25% a week until you see the desired results. Use our handy dosage calculator to accurately calculate the recommended starting dose.

Step 1. Enter your pet’s weight in kilograms

Step 2. Enter the CBD strength indicated on the product you are using in mg’s

Step 3. Enter the size of the bottle in ml’s
