CBD Dosing Guide for Dogs and Cats

The universal standard for dosing CBD Oil to you dog or cat is to start with apx. 1 mg per 10 lb’s of body weight 2X a day. The CBD dosage can then be adjusted up from there.

This can actually make a HUGE difference in how effective any CBD is,
and that includes for humans too. Read our Blog and watch our Video “how to administer pet CBD” to learn all of the details.

Do I have to give my pet CBD every day?

This question is tricky and varies. Dosing is best on a daily because just like in our systems it accumulates in theirs too. That makes it much more effective especially for chronic conditions. Since every pet is different, on an as needed will work for only some. CBD is a universal wellness tool and giving it to your pet is nothing but beneficial.

Always email us for any dosing questions you may have, especially if you buy a different mg than recommended for your pet’s weight. Keep in mind, the best and quickest absorption rate occurs when the oil is given orally (by mouth) and no food is given 30 minutes before or after taking it. For more information, please read our blog & the FAQ section or email us at [email protected] We will be happy to help you work on the dosing.

Dosing Blooming Culture Pet CBD

Metered Droppers:

.50 ml = 10 drops

.75 ml = 15 drops

1.0 ml = 20 drops

We can’t stress enough that every pet is different, and the recommended dosage of CBD oil for your pet may need to be adjusted to their individual needs. To establish a good baseline, start by giving the suggested dosage daily on a set schedule for 3 days. Based on your pet’s response, you can then slowly titrate up over the next 4 days at which time you will once again reevaluate.

Also note, our topical balm can be used for skin irritations in conjunction with the oral CBD. It does not penetrate into the bloodstream and makes a great addition to the regime.

When you have a pet that has:

*serious illness, *seizures, *major inflammation – we recommend starting with a little higher dose for the first 3 days.

CBD Dosage for Cats

CBD oil is safe for cats and can be used without worry. It’s important to remember that CBD oil is pure CBD, meaning it’s made from hemp which is a non-psychoactive plant. This means that it won’t get your cat high and doesn’t have any of the negative side effects associated with THC.

How many drops of CBD should I give my cat each day?

It depends on the concentration of CBD oil you are using and what you are using it for, so it is better to measure it by mg of cbd.

Generally, most cats require between 8 and 25 mg of CBD per day, depending on their size and condition. Small cats tend to need around 5-15mg, while larger cats need between 15-30mg.

Also, you must consider how severe your cat’s condition is. For general wellness, calming and relaxation, and joint support we recommend administering dosages towards the lower end of your cat’s corresponding dosage range. For more sever conditions such as epilepsy, severe pain or joint problems, severe anxiety or recurrent stomach issues then you would go towards the higher end of the corresponding dosage based on yur cat’s weight.

With all that said, this are just general guidelines, and as a pet parent you should monitor your cat’s reaction and increase/decrease the dosis based on that.

Can something go wrong if I give my cat too much CBD?

There is no over dosis of CBD, and it has no side effects, so there is nothing to worry about. The most it could happen if you over dose your cat is a little diahrrea or he could fall asleep (in which case you will decrease the dose next time).

With all that said, you are ready to improve your cat health with CBD. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comment section below.

CBD Oil Dosage For Cats (Control Dosing Using the Dropper)

There are many advantages to using a product that is an oil and administered to your cat via a dropper (or using some of our other administration techniques on the administration page).

    1. You have precise control over the dosing you provide to your cat.
    2. The delivery of cannabidiol via an oil using a dropper has been shown in research to be the most effective delivery method for stabilization.

    Drop oil on a treat or directly in cats mouth. Use 0.12mL (1/8 dropper or roughly 3 drops) per 10 pounds of body weight, or as desired. Spread dosing out twice a day.

    Canis World Cat 500

    Drop oil on a treat or directly in your pet’s mouth. Use 0.25mL (1/4 dropper or roughly 5 drops) per 10 pounds of body weight, or as desired. Spread the dosing out to administer twice a day.

    You are observing to note if your pet is achieving successful benefits for stiffness or mobility support etc. The dosing can then be increased or slightly decreased specific to your cat’s response and needs.

    There are variables that may impact the optimal dosing such as the age of your cat, activity level, the nature of the reason the Canis World supplement is being used, etc.

    Every cat is NOT the same nor do they have the same needs which is yet another reason why Canis World products are optimal to give you ultimate control of ensuring your cat gets a quality product and dosing levels you can precisely control.

    Canis World Cat 250

    Some cats increase the dosage level depending on the nature of the issue for your use of Canis World supplements for your cat. Every cat is individually unique so there isn’t a one size fits all for dosing.

    If you have specific questions, just ask us and we will be happy to give you feedback and guidance.

    Dosing Tips

    Calculating the CBD oil dosage for cats is easy because Canis World products are ALL 30ml which is 1 fluid ounce. This means there are approx. 29-30 full droppers in each bottle.

    As dogs and cats have different amounts of endocannabinoid receptors in the brain, it may take a little trial and error to find the amount that works for your pet. Canis World approaches CBD oil dosage for pets as more of a guideline rather than a strict set of rules, so feel free to experiment until your dog or cat starts feeling relief. We can provide a good starting point, but adjusting to find the proper CBD dosage for cats depends on a few variables.

    When administering Canis World to your pet, our recommended route of administration is giving the product to your cat directly via their mouth. Allow your cat to investigate the dropper first to relieve any apprehension, and feel free to dab some of your cat’s favorite treat onto the side of the dropper, too.

    The second method of administration requires a paper plate and a piece of your cat’s favorite treat. Using a little piece of cheese, some liver pate, or canned cat food, with Canis World CBD oil added on top, will encourage a hesitant cat to eat their CBD oil. Administering cat CBD oil with a treat will still give them the beneficial absorption they need.

    Canis World has purposely elected to use hemp seed oil as the carrier oil for the cannabidiol (CBD), as it is more of a whole plant approach. We have also designed our products for optimal pet parent control with more precise dosing . Is a CBD dosage for cats easier to administer with treats? That can be true, but we don’t sell pet treats for several reasons…

    Pet treats with CBD have other ingredients that are sourced by vendors and plied with preservatives and additives. Quality and quality control issues can become problematic. We’ve seen this firsthand within the pet food industry. At Canis World , we prefer to work farm to table, so to speak. By extracting the hemp seed oil from seeds and combining it with cannabidiol from industrial hemp, we can create a “whole plant” supplement that allows pet parents to control the quality and dosing for themselves. Our goal here at Canis World is to utilize the full benefits of the hemp plant by instilling best farming practices, quality control measures, and pet parent support.

    Dosing Timeframes

    Canis World Broad Spectrum Hemp extract with CBD has specifically created the Canis World Cat product line to include a cheese flavor as well as natural flavor. The lifespan of cannabinoids in a pets system is a window of 4-6 hours (length can depend on dog age, size, activity level etc.)

    Therefore when dosing your cat the ideal is to administer Canis World Cat Products 2 to 3 times a day.

    • Relief dosing for cats with acute matters: optimal to dose 3 times a day. For example: morning, end of so called business day and before bedtime.
    • Corrective dosing for cats who have a mild to moderate issue can be 2 to three times a day.
    • Maintenance dosing is for cats who have found a consistent steady dosage to maintain are given Canis World cat 2 times a day in an ideal setting to maintain the balance and stabaliation due to the life span in the cats system.

    Dosing 1 hour in advance

    When using Canis World Cat products, some pet parents have placed the dosing on the pets food. Some pets lick their bowl clean and this can be fine however we prefer to not have a pets meal combined with dosing.

    We prefer to see dosing an hour before OR an hour after a pets meal.

    In some instances pet parents observe favorable benefits in their pets within an hour or less. In some cases it may be a day or two. However, pets can require 2-3 weeks before their endocannbinoid system starts to stablize before you may observe results.

    Dosing with other vet pharma

    Canis World Cat Product line has a general rule of thumb that cats who may be taking vet pharma should take their vet pharma 2 to 3 hours before administration of Canis World.

    As always we recommend you open a diaglog with your veternarian if you have questions.

    Administration of Canis World Cat Products

    Cats are all very individual and unique in their personalities therefore the optimal method of delivery is using the dropper that is provided with the Canis World Cat Products and administering the dose directly into the cats mouth. Some cats do very well with this delivery and others, not as much fun for them.

    A secondary dosing method cat parents are utilizeis simply using a paper plate with some of your cats favoriate treats/snack whether that means a special cat food you dab onto the plate or a liver pate’ etc. and then you can add your Canis World Cat drops to this and have the cat lick the special treat off of the paper plate (or bowl – whatever works best for your cats specific personality)

    Some cat parents report their cat has a special “all time favorite” special treat or food item. Some pet parents can use cat food, add the drops and delicately roll that into a ball shape to have handy to give to your cat. One may ask why not just buy a pre-made cat cannabidiol treat? You can’t control the specific dosage needs that are unique to your cat. Additionally, there is no need to add other ingredients that you aren’t in directly control/knowledge of specific sourcing whether that is the binding ingredients pet treats utilize etc. We prefer a natural, organic approach and you can add other supplements to your cats diet individually that you specifically select and control.

    Canis World Product line is about delivering high-quality, clean and pure products that are natural, organic and no additives. Our Canis World Cat cheese flavor simply has a cheese flavor extract added – much like adding a vanilla extract when baking cookies etc.
