How Much CBD Should I Be Giving My Pet?

DATE:March 01, 2019BY:Aaron Argueta

If you are one of the many pet owner's out there that give your pet hemp derived CBD supplements, or if you are just looking into giving it to your pet, then I'm sure one of the first questions you are going to have is "how much CBD should I be giving my pet?" This is a tricky question, since most of what we know about CBD and dosing is anecdotal; however, thanks to the accumulation of data by leading veterinarian Dr. Robert Silver, DVM, MS, CVA, we have some insight as to what has been reported to benefit dogs and cats with certain conditions. 

Tier 1: 0.5-1MG/10LB of animal weight is the low end (starting point)

Tier 2: 1-2.5MG/10LB of animal weight is the middle ground

Tier 3: 2.5-5MG/10LB of animal weight is the high end

It is suggested to start with Tier 1 dosing, twice daily and observe over one week. It may not be necessary to increase at this point. 

However, if necessary, go on to Tier 2 twice daily and observe for another week. 

If at this point, you are still not seeing desired results, you can increase to Tier 3 dosing, twice daily. 

If has been reported that doses as high as 10MG/10LB of animal weight can cause sedation, although lower doses than that seem to be effective for anxiety. 

Because Bailey's CBD products are virtually free of THC (which is intoxicating for pets), you never have to worry about giving your pet too much. Your pet's endocannabinoid system will absorb as much CBD as it possibly can, and what is not absorbed is passed in their urine. 

Each pet is going to have its own body chemistry, and so it is important to start your pet off with the low end dosing, and increase weekly, accordingly. Because Bailey's CBD products are veterinarian formulated with non-gmo organically grown Hemp, and third party lab tested for quality assurance, you can be rest assured that you are getting the highest quality product on the market for your pet. Our goal is always to help as many pets as possible find comfort and relief through hemp CBD. We are also rooted in giving back to the community, and for every four items sold, we donate a bottle of hemp oil to a pet rescue in need.
