The first thing to do is to find out what is the weight of your dog. Using this dropper CBD chart and our online dosage calculator, you will easily know what is the perfect dose for your pet. CBD dosage is based on the weight of your pet, and so is the strength of the bottle. Pawt4Paws carries 4 different strengths of CBD that center on the weight of the pet. If your pet is suffering from a severe condition and they need more milligrams per drop, you can jump up a bottle. We highly encourage you to reach out to us if this is the case.

CBD Dosage For Ailments

If you are treating for an aliment like epilepsy, cancer treatment, arthritis, general anxiety,  allergies, etc., we suggest using the recommended dosage from our calculator twice a day. So, all the dosages should be calculated according to this assumption of using the recommended dosage morning and night. We suggest using this dosage regularly for 3 days. If after 3 days you do not notice the desire effects, increase your dosage by 1/4 dropper. We are here if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us via the contact form or chat bot!

CBD Dosage For Anxiety Triggers

If you are treating for anxiety that is triggered by something such as the vet, thunderstorms, groomer, car rides, fireworks, etc., you will use the recommended dosage from the calculator 1 full hour before the trigger occurs. If you find that this is not enough, next time you administer the oil go ahead and use the recommended dosage plus half. For example, if the calculator suggests 10mg you would be giving 15mg if you need to increase.

Suggested CBD Administration For Dogs and Cats

One very common question regarding dosage is how to actually give your dog or cat CBD oil. There are three options you can use! First, you can put the CBD oil all over their food if they have specific meal times. Do not do use this method if your pet free feeds. Second, you can administer the oil straight in their mouth. There is little to no flavor, however; most pets don’t typically enjoy this method. As I am sure you can imagine! And lastly, you can put the oil on a treat or their favorite snack. We’ve seen success with cheese, lunch meat, regular treats, and even hot dogs!

CBD is best absorbed when given with food because it clings to fat! We suggest feeding your dog or cat around the same time you give them their CBD, which is why we recommend dosing morning and night. There are no adverse side effects if you do not administer the oil with food. It just works better when given with food!
