When it comes to dosing CBD oil for dogs and cats, the initial guidelines are based on weight. The CBD dosing guidelines below are based on the 250mg HempWorx CBD Oil designed specifically for our fur babies (and happens to be bacon flavored!). In the 250 mg CBD Oil, 20 drops is equivalent to 5 mg of CBD oil. If you have a larger dog or cat, and want a higher concentration of CBD Oil per dropper, we also have a 500 mg CBD Oil in “natural” flavor, with 20 drops equivalent to 10 mg of CBD Oil.
Guidelines for CBD Dosage for Dogs and Cats:
Place CBD Oil drops directly into pet’s mouth, or mix in water or food. We have a very picky cat, so we put drops of CBD oil on her feet or places on her fur where she grooms herself often.
Under 10 lbs = 1-2 drops (1/4-1/2 mg of CBD oil)
11-20 lbs = 4-8 drops (1-2 mg of CBD oil)
21-45 lbs= 8-12 drops (2–3 mg of CBD oil)
46-74 lbs = 16-20 drops (4–5 mg of CBD oil)
With the CBD Dog Treats, since there is 2.5 mg of CBD oil in each treat, for extra small pets (under 10 lbs), you would use approximately 1/4 of a CBD treat to start. For small dogs up to 20 lbs, you would start with 1/2 a treat, for medium dogs you can start with 1 treat and for larger dogs, you can start with 1 to 2 treats.
