CBD Doses for Dogs or Cats

How much CBD should you give your dog or cat?

Determining the ideal dose of CBD for your dog or cat may require experimentation

How much CBD oil to give a catWhether you’re using hemp CBD oil for anxiety or pain relief, the right dose can vary quite a bit from one situation to the next and you may need to experiment to find the right amount and how often. Start with a dose in the middle of the range and expect to see results in 30–60 minutes. If there is no change after an hour, increase the dosage.

Affordable CBD for dogs and cats

Wisely Pet’s hemp CBD products are among the highest quality and most affordable CBD options available for dogs and cats. To make long-term use affordable or to give CBD to larger dogs, you may want to compare CBD prices. Each product has a specific set of benefits–feel free to use our web chat or email us at orders@allthebestpetcare.com if you would like a recommendation for your pet. Our highly-trained pet care specialists will be happy to help you find the best CBD for your dog or cat.

What’s the right CBD dose for your cat or dog?

The basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1–5 mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight.

Because potencies vary by CBD product, it’s important to read the label to determine the amount of CBD to offer, not focus on the volume of the product it’s in.

How often should you give your dog or cat CBD?

To control pain, give your dog or cat CBD every 8 hours or as needed. For other uses, give once or twice a day.
