Why do Pets Need Exact Doses of CBD?
This is one of the pet CBD questions that is asked a lot. If they have an endocannabinoid system just like we do, why does dosage matter for them more? The answer is – they may have the same system, but they have much smaller bodies. Yes, livestock have much larger bodies, but they should also have an exact dose. Pets can have a negative reaction if they are given too much CBD. No fatalities in pets have been recorded from the use of CBD, but some pet parents have said that doses weren’t properly suggested in some pet CBD products they’ve purchased and their pets didn’t have the best reaction.
We always stress the importance of knowing your pet’s actual weight so that you can provide them with an accurate dose. Our CBD Dosage Guide for Pets. We suggest printing it out or bookmarking it so that you always have it on hand.
Is CBD Really Safe for Pets?
There aren’t any studies, at least so far, saying that CBD isn’t safe for pets. Of course, as we also always say – speak with your vet first. Not all pets are ideal candidates for natural, alternative treatments. Pets taking blood thinners or some liver medications probably shouldn’t use CBD as there are known interactions between CBD and those categories of medications.
In the right dose and proper frequency of doses, CBD can be effect in supporting your pet’s health as it supports your body.
How Often Can I Give My Pet CBD?
Ideally, pets shouldn’t have more than 2 doses of CBD a day. Some pets may need to be microdosed, which is simply breaking down their dose into 2 or 3 smaller doses. The same goes for humans. Sometimes microdosing is just easier and works better for all-day maintenance.
How do I get my Picky Pet to Take CBD?
It really can be hard to give pets medicine or anything other than their food or special treats. When this is the case, we suggest adding their dose of CBD to dry food or even some plain mashed potatoes or smashed bananas. When you add the CBD to food it only alters the flavor of the food slightly, so your pet is still likely to eat it.
