How Much CBD Should
I Give My Pet?

As a pet parent who wants the best for their furry friend, CBD can offer wellness support in a safe and very natural way. Unfortunately, finding the ideal CBD dosage for dogs, cats, and other pets can be quite confusing.

If you haven't used pet products with CBD before and want to give them a try, Suzie's Pet Treats can offer much-needed support. Continue reading to learn how much CBD you should give to your dog, and don't forget to get in touch if you have any questions or special inquiries.

We recommend starting with 1 mg of CBD per 10 lbs

split into a morning and evening dose!*

I weigh 40 lbs, so I take 2 mg of CBD in the morning and 2 mg at night!

Every pet is unique, so if you are not seeing the desired results after 3 to 7 days of using twice daily, feel free to increase the dose 1 mg at a time. 

*Horses process CBD differently than other animals. Our equine friends only need 10-20 mg of CBD per day.

How Can CBD Help My Pets?

Using CBD for your pets can help them in several ways, including:

  • Lowering pain and inflammation

  • Reducing feelings of nervousness and aggression

  • Has been found to help with reducing the frequency of seizures (for pets with epilepsy)

  • Sleep support

  • Maintaining overall balance

CBD Dosage for Dogs, Cats, and Pets

Hemp-based CBD, which is what you will find in Suzie's CBD products, is considered safe even at very high levels. Since there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to CBD dosage for dogs, you will need to do some experimenting until you find the right dosage. 

Ultimately, the amount of CBD needed will depend on a number of reasons, starting with why you are using it, your pet's weight, age, and metabolism, among other factors. For first-time users, a good starting point is to base CBD dosage on weight.

We recommend starting low and adjusting the dosage slowly and consistently until you see the desired outcome. Start at 1 mg of CBD per 10 lbs twice a day. If you do not see the desired results, adjust the dosage to 1 mg at a time.

However, using too much is not necessary and will not offer additional wellness possibilities. Keep a record of how much CBD you are using and the exact dose that yielded a desired outcome. Always consult your vet before using very high doses.

How Can CBD Be Administered To My Pets?

Suzie's CBD products come in different forms, including oils, soft chews, CBD sticks and stickers, drops, and even CBD bones for big dogs. To ensure you are getting CBD dosage for dogs and other pets right, all our products contain dosage information on the label.

If you choose to go the soft chews route, then our soft-baked chews contain full spectrum CBD oil with clear dosage information. If you are dealing with picky eaters, our CBD oil tinctures are a great alternative, and they also contain clear dosage information. In short, we have something for every pet, and you will never have to worry about finding the correct dosage information as it's all on the package.
