Starting Dosages by milligram (mg)
For dogs and cats, most vets recommend using one (1) mg of CBD per 10 lbs. at first.
Example 1: Your anxious dog weighs 23 lbs. You should begin with 2 mg of CBD,
and observe her behavior for the first hour. If it seems to have little effect,
then give her another mg. This 2-3 mg serving should soothe her
for 4-6 hours, depending upon the severity of her condition.
Example 2: Your senior dog weighs 57 lbs. and has joint pain and mobility issues.
You should start with a 5-6 mg serving of CBD, and watch his behavior and
movements in the first hour. If he does not seem to respond, then give
him another mg for good measure. This 6-7 mg dose should help
him move about with less pain for 4-6 hours.
Example 3: Your new rescue kitty weighs 11 lbs. She runs and rips around your
house all night, tearing through anything not tied down. You could start
with 1 mg of CBD before your own bedtime, and see if she lets you
sleep in peace. If she still wakes you, then give her another mg.
This 1-2 mg starting dose should calm her for 4-6 hours.
At Tempe Organics, we offer user-friendly snacks and treats with pre-measured amounts
of no-THC CBD. Just count the number of chews needed per 10 lbs. of your pet's weight,
and you're good to go! With our CBD-isolate tinctures, in order to measure 1 mg of CBD,
you will need to count five (5) drops of oil per 10 lbs. to start.
Methods for Pets
With CBD-isolate tinctures, you can deliver the recommended dosage by mouth, or you can add it to their food. With these drops, follow the recommended per-pound dosage, but avoid under-dosing your pets.
With CBD-isolate and PCR snacks and treats, be sure to follow the recommended per-pound dosage. If your pets do not respond within 60 minutes, then don't be afraid to give them another chew for good measure.
Apply a dime-sized amount to the area of pain, stiffness, or dryness, and then gently rub it into their skin. Apply every 4-6 hours or as needed. Pet topicals are formulated to be safe for consumption also.
