Dosing Guidelines for Pets
Making the Choice to treat your pet with CBD is a natural and safe choice. However, like anything else all pets are individual and dosing may need to be adjusted depending on weight and the aliment being treated.
First, we always recommend that you talk to your veterinarian before starting your pet on a CBD regimen. Most vets will give advice but will say that they cannot actually “prescribe” CBD, do to it not being FDA Approved.
Dosing instructions are commonly used as follows: 1-3 mg per 10lbs body weight. We always recommend starting your pet on the lower dose and working up from there. There are always exceptions to the rules.
