How to Get Your Pet to Take CBD


CBD can offer a wide array of benefits to your pet; from alleviating anxiety and stress, to chronic pain and inflammation! But how do you get your fluffy friend to actually take it? Lucky for you, we are one step ahead. CBD comes in a wide array of forms and flavors that you pet are sure to love!

How Much CBD Should I Give My Cat or Dog? 

Before giving your pet CBD oil, you have to first find out what their proper dosage should be. 

The recommended dosage for cats and dogs is generally between 1-3mg for every 10 pounds of body weight. The range from 1-3mg depends on the severity of your pet’s ailments and their overall tolerance levels. It is recommended to start at the lower end of this scale and slowly increase to find their perfect dosage. 

Tips to Give Your Pet CBD Oil 

We found that most dogs love getting their CBD oil directly from the tincture. This should be presented as a treat or reward for doing something good so that they form a positive association with it. However, if your cat or dog is a bit more fussy, you can simply mix the oil into their usual meal. 

If you’re feeling extra creative, you can even create your own homemade treats with CBD oil. CBD pet recipes such as peanut butter biscuits and no-bake pumpkin spice treats are a real hit with the pups. Cats, on the other hand, seem to really love some homemade CBD-infused sweet potato or tuna-based snacks. 

As always, it is recommended that your pet’s specific situation be evaluated by a veterinarian. Ask your vet about how adding CBD oil to your pet’s care regimen can help manage their symptoms.
