How Much CBD Should I Give My Dog Or Cat?
There are differences in how your pet should take CBD. One of course is regards to the amount needed because your dog or cat is likely a bit smaller than you. Unless you have a mastiff in which case they may need a bit more CBD.
With no exact dosage amount for our four-legged furry friends. The best method to calculate dosage is figuring out how much your pet weighs. An easy way to do this is to weigh yourself on your home scale and then weigh yourself holding your pet. After you have those two weights you can subtract your weight from the weight of both you and your pet.
To calculate the best dosage you should know that a standard eyedropper dispenses 0.05 ml per drop, meaning there are about 20 drops in 1 milliliter. The Healing Dragon CBD Pet Tinctures our 30ml bottles providing 300mg of CBD oil. So there are approximately 10mg of CBD per milileter.
With all that information we know that 1mg of CBD = 1/10 dropper or just 2 drops. Dosage amounts for cats and dogs very greatly from the minimum of 1mg and up depending on weight. Some things to keep in mind is the average adult cat weighs about 10 pounds But some smaller dog breeds, such as Chihuahuas and Pomeranian, don’t even weigh that much.
Starting off with a low dosage is ideal to see how you dog or cat responds. If you don’t notice any improvements and there are no adverse affects you should increase the dosage amount after a week to see if the higher dosage is beneficial. Please review the below chart to find the right dosage amount.
