If they need a quicker onset of relief, we recommend the CBD hemp oil tincutre PurCBD+. The thin tissue of the mouth makes CBD readily absorbable into the bloodstream, and you’ll typically see CBD working within 10-30 minutes depending on how long your pet was able to hold the oil in their mouth.
As you can see in the final bullet point, calculating and measuring out the CBD dosage for dogs can be trickier if they are a bit on the larger side of the scale. What’s nice about dosing CBD oil is you have a safe and wide range of mg of CBD that you can give your dog based on their symptoms, so even if your pup has put on some weight since his last visit to the veterniarian, as long as you don’t exceed the maximum daily dose you’ll be good. To determine the maximum daily CBD dosage for dogs, we use a limit of 5 mg CBD/kg or 5 mg per 2.2 lbs. We increase this recommended maximum only when new studies emerge supporting higher doses. Please talk to your veterinarian about doses higher than 5 mg of CBD per kg of body weight.
If administering to a much smaller animal, you’ll want to check out the charts “Generic Hemp Equine Pellets Dosage Guide” and “Hemp CBD Tier Dosage Guidelines”.
How to Dose with CBD Capsules, Treats, Chews, and Pellets
Many people have seen the benefits of CBD for dogs for overall pet health and wellness, and we’re sure your four-legged fur baby is going to love you even more for the purchase. You may be wondering what the correct mg of CBD oil dosage for pets looks like. The first step in determining the correct dosage in mg CBD is to check out our handy little calculator above. It’s pretty simple: in just three steps you’ll know the perfect dose, as well as what CBD products we recommend for your dogs and cats.
If you’re looking for precise dose of CBD, our PurCBD+ oil/tincture is still your best option as capsules and treats will carry a one-size-fits-all dose.
Your veterinarian will be able to help you monitor your pet to ensure that hemp CBD oil interaction with the other drug is positive. With digestive issues, it’s usually the hemp oil carrier that causes the stomach irritation rather than the CBD.
Your average CBD capsule formulated for humans is around 10-15 mg, and that’s what we recommend a miniature horse with a body weight of 350 lbs. Please note, this number is an example and is not intended to diagnose, treat , cure or mitigate for your mini horse.
Step 3: Use the concentration of the CBD product you are using to calculate the volume of oil you should administer. Depending on the product you are using, this is easier said than done. If you are using HempRx or HempRx Forte, it’s REALLY simple! HempRx has 0.5 mg per drop. HempRx Forte has 1 mg per drop. For example if you need to give your kitty 3 mg of CBD twice daily. You could use 6 drops of the HempRx or 3 drops of the HempRx Forte twice daily.
Products with high levels of CBD are expensive. For this reason, it is most economical to find the smallest dose that is effective for your kitty. There are no industry wide established doses for cats currently. As the cannabis market expands, more resources will be dedicated to research in optimal dosing for cats.
Dose of CBD is 4 mg twice daily
Choosing A Dose
For kitties, I recommend starting with the HempRx Soft Chewz or the HempRx oil. If you have multiple kitties, I recommend using the HempRx Forte to save money. This version is twice as concentrated with over twice the volume.
11 lb (division sign) 2.2 = 5 kg
Step 1: Convert your kitty’s weight from pounds (lbs) to kilograms (kg). You can do this by dividing the weight in pounds by 2.2. Let’s start with an 11 lb kitty.
