Your Pets can take CBD
One of my good friends called me late last year. She was panicked because her pet cat, which certainly was a family member, was diagnosed with seizures. The vet was unsure of the best treatment for the feline companion. My pal found out I was offering CBD for friends and family and she gave me a call.
The rest of the story is wonderful. Her cat has been seizure free since I provided her with some CBD oil. There are many CBD oils which you can use for pets - some are better than others. We are affiliated with a number of reputable manufacturers of quality CBD for animals and we'd gladly recommend them.
One of the biggest worries we had initially was "HOW MUCH TO DOSE?" when it came to the various pets. We did some research and found some great articles that contributed more information to our customers. We passed this information along - making many people much happier (see the article link below for the full article).
Future research and experience will give us more information on dosing levels and intervals. Current recommendations for oral dosing of CBD in dogs and cats are 0.02 mg/kg to 0.1 mg/kg given twice daily. According to James Gaynor, DVM, DACVA, DACVPM, of Peak Performance Veterinary Group, for pain management most dogs do well at 0.05 mg/kg twice daily, while cats do well at 0.025 mg/kg twice daily.
Getting your pet to take CBD Oil
If you pick up some of our affiliates' CBD Oil designed for pets, then you're pretty much guaranteed your pet will be eager to take their dose. This is because most pet-only CBD providers have been using flavorings (like salmon or beef) to make their oils more enticing for cats and dogs. However, you can use regular CBD oil (peppermint or fancy flavors for humans may not be the best choices for pets) when it's time to dose your pets.
After you've performed the basic calculation based upon your pet's size, consider how you will provide that to the pet for them to consume. We've discovered some of the following very useful techniques.
With the following, mix in the CBD oil before giving to the pet:
- Peanut Butter
- Bacon fat
The amount of the mixable above really doesn't have to be large. A small amount of peanut butter does wonders for the CBD oil we offer our dogs. Same goes for the rest of the mix-ins. The flavor is more important than the quantity of mix-in.
When I have the CBD oil mixed with one of the above, I simply offer the spoon to the pet and it disappears quickly. Perfect dosing.
