Hemp Bombs’ CBD products have a positive reputation for helping humans relax and feel better, and we also have high-quality CBD Oil available for dogs. Our CBD Oil for Dogs is designed specifically with your pup’s wellness in mind, and it offers many benefits, including helping your dog become more calm and relaxed.
Can I Give My Dog CBD?
It’s best to discuss giving CBD to your dog with your veterinarian before starting. But, yes, CBD is known to be safely administered to dogs with no negative side effects if you choose premium CBD for Pets. Hemp Bombs CBD Oil for Pets and CBD Dog Chews use high quality CBD sourced from sustainable Industrial Hemp grown in the United States that is safe for humans and your four-legged friends. All of our CBD pet products are lab tested on-site. They are also tested by an ISO-certified third-party lab to certify their potency and safety. We publish the lab tests for transparency so that you can be confident in the product that you are giving to your companion. CBD is non-toxic and has no adverse side effects. If your dog is currently taking other medications, talk to your veterinarian and ask them if CBD is right for your pup.
Why Give CBD Oil to a Dog
Since CBD is helpful with so many issues that affect dogs, there are a wide variety of reasons why an owner would choose to give CBD to their dog. Some of the positive CBD benefits include promoting a sense of calm, reducing anxiety and balancing mind and body wellness. There are many other potential benefits of CBD use in pets that are being discovered every day. CBD Oil can help your furry friends feel better, and sometimes this is the most important thing we can do for our pets.
Another important factor in giving CBD Oil to your dog is providing the right serving size. It’s likely you have read about the benefits of CBD Oil for dogs, and now you may be wondering how much CBD to give to your dog. There are several questions you first need to answer to determine this: How much does my dog weigh? As you can imagine, a five-pound dog will need a much smaller serving size than a 150-pound dog. Most CBD Oil products for pets will have a general “drops per pound” or “milligrams per pound” recommendation on the label. While we cannot give specific dosage recommendations, you can refer to our handy CBD Dosing Chart for Dogs to help you find the right serving size for your dog. This is a once daily serving size.
How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog for Anxiety?
While we recommend starting with a standard serving size, you may want to eventually adjust the serving depending on your dog’s needs. Be sure to speak to your veterinarian about your pet's CBD intake.
Can You Give Too Much CBD to a Dog?
Since CBD is not psychoactive, you can’t really give a dog too much CBD, per se. However, we strongly suggest sticking to the dosage guidelines provided by a veterinarian.
Can I Give My Dog Human CBD?
As long as there aren’t any ingredients that dogs are sensitive to and you follow the recommended serving size, giving human CBD Oil should be fine. However, it is always best to provide a product that is formulated specifically for dogs. They are more likely to readily consume a product catered to their tastes.
How to Give a Dog CBD Oil
Apply Directly into the Mouth
Direct oral application helps ensure your dog is consuming his or her full daily serving of CBD. Simply slide the dropper between the cheek and gums and dispense the oil directly into the back of the mouth. This CBD works best for dogs who need a half or full dropper of oil, as you will not need to count the drops.
Give CBD Oil as a Treat
It’s a rare occasion when a dog turns down a treat, making your pup’s favorite tasty snack the perfect vehicle for CBD Oil. Squeeze the oil tincture from the dropper directly onto the treat. If it’s a dry texture, let the oil absorb for a few seconds. Chances are, your dog will devour the treat without even realizing you added CBD Oil. (Bonus tip – you can also mix it into a glob of yummy peanut butter!)
Mix CBD Oil into the Food Bowl
If your dog is truly a picky eater, you may want to consider mixing CBD Oil into the food bowl. All you need to do is add the CBD drops onto your dog’s normal meal and stir before serving. You may find this especially effective with wet food. For dry food, just add drops directly to the kibbles.
Mix CBD Oil into Your Dog’s Water.
You can also mix CBD Oil directly into your dog’s water dish. Keep in mind this may not be ideal for dogs who share a water bowl, as it may be difficult to monitor their intake. If your pet dislikes the taste at first we have found that some will get used to it over time.
We hope you learned how to give a dog CBD Oil along with a lot about using CBD Oil in dogs. CBD Oil can provide a long list of positive benefits for humans and dogs. If you think CBD Oil may benefit your dog, speak with your veterinarian, and then order Hemp Bombs CBD Oil for Pets today!
