CBD Dosage Chart For Dogs & Cats

CBD Dosage chart for dogs

Are you looking for the correct dosage size of CBD oil for dogs? Maybe your concern is how many CBD cat treats to give your cat? Currently, there are no official standard dosing guidelines set in place, and different products contain different concentrations of CBD. This is why it can seem like a task to figure out the correct dosage size for your pet. Not to worry, there are some general recommended CBD dosage guidelines you can follow. If you wish to use any CBD product for your pet and wonder what is the general dosing size to administer, this extensive vet-approved dosage guide will show you exactly how much CBD oil you should give your dog or cat.

Basic Dosing Rules For All Pets:

Regular doses are for general health. They can help improve your pet’s health by helping them fend off new and existing diseases, and several digestive and skin conditions. They’re good for your pet’s mental health too, as they can help with your pet’s stress and anxiety. They can also ease minor pains and aches, so they’re good for pets suffering from mild to moderate arthritis.

Strong doses are for more serious conditions. They are able to help pets with severe stress symptoms, anxiety, severe nausea, and epilepsy. They can even help ease pain from severe arthritis, tumors and cancer-related symptoms. 

The general recommendation is 0.25mg for a regular dose, and 0.50mg for a strong dose for every pound of body weight.

If your pet needs a regular dose, just multiply their weight by 0.25. The regular dose for a 50lb dog is 12.5mg of CBD (50 X 0.25 = 12.5mg).

If they need a strong dose, just multiply their weight by 0.50. The strong dose for a 50lb dog is 25mg of CBD (50 X 0.50 = 25.0mg).

The same goes for your pet cats too.

Dosing frequency:

  • 30 minutes before stress or anxiety-inducing event (fireworks, thunderstorm, separation, travel)
  • Thrice a day (with 8 hour intervals) for pain and inflammation
  • Once or twice a day for other uses

CBD Pet Tinctures

CBD tinctures can be used for different pet breeds and sizes. They usually come with a dropper, with dosages measured approximately using number of drops. It can be administered orally, so you can either drop them on your pet’s food or directly into their mouths.

CBD dosage is dependent on body weight. Please choose your product according to the weight of your pet:

CBD Pet Capsules

If you’re not a fan of administering CBD with droppers, you can go for capsules instead. They’re pre-measured though, so you might not be able to choose the exact dosage needed by your pet.

If your pet can take capsules, then just have them take it directly, but you can also just open up the capsules and sprinkle the powder and incorporate the contents into their food.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog?

The breed of you dog doesn’t matter much, but weight and size have a lot to do with how much CBD oil to give your pet dog. We have already discussed regular and strong doses, so you can estimate how much CBD oil your dog can take at this point.

Smaller dog breeds like Pomeranians, Yorkies, and Chihuahuas that weigh between 1 and 10 pounds can take around 0.25mg (regular dose) to a maximum of 5mg (strong dose) of CBD.

Bigger dog breeds like Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Siberian Huskies that weigh between 70 and 90 pounds can take around 17.5mg (regular dose) to a maximum of 45mg (strong dose) of CBD.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Cat?

Cats are usually smaller than dogs, and the former also usually have quite a small range for weight and sizes. CBD oil doses for cats depend on their weight too.

Medium cat breeds like Persians and Orientals that weigh between 7 and 12 pounds can take between 1.75mg (regular dose) to a maximum of 6mg (strong dose) of CBD.

Bigger cat breeds like Ragdolls that weigh between 12 and 20 pounds can take between 3mg (regular dose) to a maximum of 10mg (strong dose) of CBD.

How To Find The Optimum CBD Dosage Size For Your Dog Or Cat

After you’ve taken weight into account, the next thing to consider is your pet’s condition. Would you be giving them CBD oil for their daily health or are they battling a more serious condition?

We’ve already given the guideline above for regular and strong doses. We’d recommend starting off with a lower, regular dose than needed, and then gradually work your way up to the exact dose that they need.

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

This depends on both your dog’s weight and the severity of your dog’s anxiety. Regular doses may ease mild to moderate anxiety, while stronger doses are recommended for severe bouts of anxiety.

Since anxiety may not always be present, we’d recommend giving CBD oil to pets 30 minutes before an expected anxiety trigger.

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

As one of the more common conditions for older dogs, arthritis causes physical pain for pets and emotional pain for owners. CBD oil for dog arthritis depends on both their weight and the severity of the condition. This means that a smaller dog can take a higher dosage than a bigger dog if the smaller dog’s condition is more severe.

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

Once again, consider your dog’s weight and the seriousness of the condition. CBD oil for dog seizures has been known to decrease frequency and severity of episodes, so make sure you adjust the dosage for optimum effects.
