Do you ask yourself how much CBD oil should I give my dog? This  dosage guide will show you exactly how much CBD your pet needs.

 

Things You Should Consider Before Treating Your Dog With CBD

Before we will talk about how much CBD oil you should give your dog you need to know that there are two important factors that you must consider.

One of the main factors influencing dosage with CBD products is the your dog’s ailment which determines the dose size:

  • REGULAR Dose: Daily health and wellness, boost immune function, old age, allergies, minor skin conditions, stimulate appetite, minor stress & anxiety, digestive issues & nausea, moderate arthritis & joint inflammation, minor aches, and pains.
  • STRONG Dose: Chronic pain, severe arthritis & joint inflammation, mobility issues, epileptic seizures, cancer-related symptoms, tumors, severe anxiety, extreme nausea, and vomiting.

The second important factor is the type of product you use.

CBD products are typically available in 3 forms:

  • Oils
  • Capsules
  • Treats

After this short introduction we will look at the at specifics about CBD dosage for dogs based on two most popular brands – Holista Pet and King Kanine.

Important note

Despite the fact that all of the presented products have been laboratory tested and are safe to use I recommend working closely with your vet to find the ideal dosage for your dog.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog For Anxiety?

Before you decided to give your dog CBD Oil for anxiety you need to take into consideration a few factors like:

  • type of product,
  • size of your dog,
  • type of event which trigger your dog anxiety

The heavier the dog, the more CBD it will take to have an effect on your pet’s anxiety.

Anxiety is usually triggered by some type of event. Events like when a thunderstorm occurs,  when you leave your home or when the pet travels in a car or airplane. Other anxiety triggers may include other adults, children or other animals.

The CBD will be most effective for treating anxiety when it is given 30 prior to the event.

According to HolistaPet general dosing guidelines for dog anxiety is between a regular dose 0.25 MG for every 1 LB of body weight all the way up to a stronger dose 0.5 MG for every 1 LB of body weight. This should generally be given 30 mins prior to the event causing the anxiety.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog for Arthritis?

Arthritis is one of the most common conditions among middle-aged to older dogs. If left untreated, it may cause chronic pain in your dog’s joints, which will reduce his or her mobility drastically.

Before you give your dog CBD oil for arthritis you need to consider two factors which drives a proper dosage:

  • size of your dog,
  • severity of your dog’s arthritis.

Regarding the size of your dog the rule is simple and intuitive – the heavier your dog weighs, the higher the dose will be.

In regards to the severity of arthritis, the rule is that the more severe the your dog’s condition is, the more CBD you will need to give them.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog for Seizures?

Watching your dog experience seizures can be one of the most painful sights to witness as a dog owner.

There are several types of seizures that can affect, some much more serious than others.

When considering CBD oil for your dog’s seizures, the rule for dosing is similar to the previous case. The bigger your dog is, and the heavier it weighs, the more CBD you will need to administer.

Additionally, if the type of seizures your dog has is more serious, you may need to administer more CBD oil.

Conclusion
