CBD Dosage Chart For Dogs

Below is a dosage chart, showing how much CBD to give your dog depending on their breed and condition. Please note that this is based on the average size of an adult dog of each breed. While puppies can certainly benefit from CBD, fewer studies have been done on puppies. In this case, it’s best to ask your vet for advice on what dosage of CBD to use.

Some veterinarians may advise you to use a small amount of CBD and gradually increase it. If you’re unsure about which dosage of CBD to use for your dog, call an animal healthcare professional.

Cannabidiol – or CBD – is a hugely beneficial cannabinoid that can safely be used on dogs. Whether your pup has pain, anxiety, or inflammation, they can benefit from CBD oil or treats – but what dosage of CBD should you use for your dog?
CBD can be extracted from hemp or cannabis, with hemp CBD products being legal pretty much everywhere. It can come in the form of dog treats, tinctures or oils, or capsules.

Just as it can benefit humans, CBD can benefit dogs in a number of different ways. Studies show that the supplement can reduce seizures in dogs with epilepsy and other neurological disorders. CBD also promotes a healthy skin and coat by regulating the sebum production and reducing inflammation in the skin. It also soothes anxiety and reduces pain in dogs with chronic conditions.
If you’re interested in trying this natural supplement but you’re not sure how much CBD to give your dog, read on!

How much CBD to give your dog

Always use a high-quality form of CBD to make sure that your pet is getting the very best supplement. The packaging should specify how many milligrams of CBD you get per drop. Use this as a guide and adjust the dosage accordingly. For example, if your dog needs 0,5mg and the packaging says that there are 0,25mg of CBD per drop, give your dog two drops.
CBD can also come in the form of CBD-enriched treats and dog biscuits. In this case, the packaging should state how many milligrams of CBD is in each dog biscuit.

The correct dosage of CBD for your dog depends on their weight and the condition you want to treat. Generally, you’d want to give your dog 1mg – 5mg for every ten pounds. Start on the low side of the chart initially, and gradually increase the CBD dosage you give them after each week. Here’s how much CBD you should generally give your dog based on their weight:

  • 10 pounds: 1 mg – 5 mg
  • 20 pounds: 2 mg – 10 mg
  • 30 pounds: 3 mg – 15 mg
  • 40 pounds: 4 mg – 20 mg
  • 50 pounds: 5 mg – 25 mg
  • 60 pounds: 6 mg – 30 mg
  • 70 pounds: 7 mg – 35 mg
  • 80 pounds: 8 mg – 40 mg
  • 90 pounds: 9 mg – 45 mg

How to safely give your dog CBD

It often takes about 30 minutes for CBD to kick in. You might not notice a huge change in behavior from your dog immediately – in this case, don’t attempt to give them more CBD until the next day.
CBD might make your dog seem more relaxed, and it might even make them a little sleepy. However, you should monitor your dog carefully after they take the CBD – if they vomit, avoid eating, or seem too ‘out of it’, it’s best to contact an emergency vet immediately. While it’s very unlikely that your dog will experience side effects of CBD, it is a possibility.

Remember to err on the side of caution and consult your vet if you’re unsure of how much CBD to give your dog – after all, your furry family members always deserve the very best care!
