CBD Oil for Dogs, Cats and All Pets
Humans aren’t the only mammals who love CBD… many dogs and cats do, too! If you’re interested in giving your beloved pet CBD, we hope you choose a reputable brand like CBDfx that’s committed to providing product transparency and the same high standards that should apply to human products, too.
What Are The Benefits Of Using CBD Oil For Pets?
Simply put, we don’t quite know yet. More research needs to be done before we can definitively say whether CBD benefits dogs and cats, and CBDfx makes no express or implied claim about CBD’s ability to benefit your pet. What does seem clear, however, is that CBDfx Pet CBD Oil is well-tolerated by the vast majority of dogs and cats, and is non-toxic.
How Much CBD Pet Tincture Should I Use?
Because the FDA has not approved CBD as a treatment or supplement for pets yet, CBDfx cannot make a serving size recommendation.
As a starting point, each drop of our medium breed pet CBD tincture oil should work out to about 1mg of active CBD. CBDfx customers report that they typically use 1 drop for every 4 lbs of the animal’s body weight.
Of course, you can also start smaller than that, see how the animal reacts, and slowly increase the daily serving based on how you see your pet responding to the CBD.
How much CBD oil should I give my small dog?
The FDA has not established any usage guidelines, and CBDfx is not in a position to recommend serving amounts. With any product you give your pet, consider that your pet’s weight is the first factor to consider in determining how much CBD tincture for dogs to use daily. Our 150 mg CBD oil for dogs is formulated for animals that weigh 20 pounds or less. The handy dropper that comes with each bottle dispenses about 0.5mg of active CBD per drop. Many of our customers using CBD oil for small dogs find that about 1 drop for every 2 pounds of the animal’s body weight is the right starting point.
Your dog can’t give you feedback on how the CBD feels, so you need to pay careful attention yourself. A pet that gets too big of a serving of small dog tincture may be extra drowsy or sluggish. If your dog’s energy level is less than normal, consider reducing the amount until you find the sweet spot for your four-legged pal.
The American Kennel Club, a nonprofit that has been supporting dog owners since 1884, offers this recommendation to people providing their pets with CBD. “It is always advisable, when giving your dog something new, to start out with small amounts and then closely monitor the effects.”
Should I give my dog the small breed or medium breed tincture?
CBDfx offer different concentrations of CBD pet drops so you can choose just the right one for your dog. For little breeds such as Yorkies, Pugs, Chihuahuas, and other “miniatures” weighing 20 pounds and less, 150mg CBD oil for dogs provides a moderate amount that you can dole out in 0.5mg drops. This lets you adjust the serving carefully.
CBDfx's Pet CBD Oil 300mg (medium breed) was made for animals that weigh between 20 and 60 pounds. If your dog is close to the weight border between small and medium, start with the 150mg CBD oil, so you can gradually calibrate the right amount, drop by drop. After using CBD tincture for dogs for a few weeks, you may decide to give your dog a higher concentration. If so, choose the formula for medium breeds when you re-order.
Why is the CBDfx dog tincture good for my dog?
If you’re interested in giving your dog CBD, CBDfx hope that you would choose a reputable company like CBDfx. Our beloved pets can’t make the same informed decisions we can, so it’s important that you choose a product that’s safely and carefully formulated to contain well-tolerated ingredients. Furthermore, you should choose a product that has a posted lab report, so that you can see exactly what’s in the tincture you’re giving your dog. At CBDfx, they provide lab reports for all of their pet products (and human products, too)!
Will my small breed dog get high from CBD oil?
This is understandably confusing for many people, so here’s what you need to know: CBD oil comes from hemp, the strain of cannabis plants that contains only very tiny trace amounts THC, the mind-altering component of marijuana. Your pet won’t get high from properly made CBD tincture for dogs. Our 150mg CBD oil for pets has less than 0.3% THC.
The American Kennel Club offers this advice to dog owners shopping for CBD: “The manufacturer should provide a certificate that tells you the amount of CBD that is in the product. Many CBD oils contain only small amounts of CBD. You’ll also want to make sure there is little or no THC in the product.” We post the report from an independent laboratory on our 150 mg CBD oil, so you can be sure you’re getting high-quality CBD for your pet.
