CBD Dosing Guide

When it comes to dosing CBD oil drops for pets, it's important to start with a low dosage and gradually increase it based on your pet's response and needs. We have detailed below our advised general dosing guide to help you get started with your pet.

Determine the potency: Check the label of your CBD oil drops to determine the concentration of CBD per millilitre (ml). This will help you calculate the appropriate dosage.


Consider your pet's weight: The weight of your pet plays a crucial role in determining the right dosage. As a general guideline, a low dose would be 0.1mg to 0.5mg of CBD per kg of body weight, medium dose 0.5mg to 1mg of CBD per kg of body weight, and a high dose would be 1mg to 2mg per kg animal weight.


Start low and observe: Begin with the lowest recommended dosage and monitor your pet's response over several days. Observe any changes in behaviour, mood, or symptoms you are targeting.


Gradually increase if needed: If you don't see the desired effects, you can gradually increase the dosage every few days until you find the optimal dose. It's important to make small adjustments and closely monitor your pet's well-being during this process.


Split the dosage: If needed, you can split the daily dosage into two equal servings, given once in the morning and once in the evening, to ensure a consistent level of CBD in your pet's system.


Consult with a veterinarian: It's always a good idea to consult with a veterinarian before introducing CBD oil to your pet's regimen. They can provide personalised guidance based on your pet's specific needs, health conditions, and any medications they may be taking.
