How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog?

Once you’ve found high-quality CBD for your dog, you’re probably wondering, “How much CBD oil should I give my dog?” The answer all depends on how much they weigh and how severe their symptoms are.

Pet CBD Dosage Amounts By Weight

A general rule of thumb is to give a dog or other pet 1mg of CBD per 10lbs of weight. If your dog is still experiencing symptoms, you can go up to about 5mg of CBD per 10 lbs. So, for example, a dog weighing 30 lbs might take between 3-15mg of CBD. Every dog is different, so take some time to experiment with different doses to see what your fur-ball benefits from the most.

How Should I Give CBD To My Dog?

Now that you know how much CBD oil you should give your dog, what is the best way to give it to them? When using CBD oil drops, many pet parents will add the recommended amount to their pet’s food. This is a great way to sneak the CBD in mess-free, and some pets seem to enjoy the extra flavor! You can also add a few drops of CBD oil to a biscuit or other kind of treat if you want to be sure they ingest all of it. Feel free to experiment and find out what your dog likes best!

How Long Before CBD Starts Working for Dogs?

In general, CBD can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to start working on dogs. When you give your pet CBD oil, it may begin working a little faster than if you gave them a treat that is infused with CBD. When you use CBD oil on its own, there are fewer ingredients for their system to break down first.

How Long Does CBD Last for Dogs?

Every dog is different! When your dog consumes CBD, the effects can last anywhere from 4-8 hours. In general, younger dogs digest things quicker than older dogs. The duration can depend a lot on your pet’s breed, activity level, size, and severity of symptoms as well. It should be okay to give your pet another dose of CBD after about 8 hours. Many pet parents give their dogs CBD in the morning and at night to keep them feeling good all day, but you can find out what works best for you and your fur baby!
