The most common method of giving CBD oil to your pets is either spraying it directly into the animal’s mouth, onto your cat’s paw or simply spray it into their meals each day or on a dog or cat treat.
CBD is non-psychoactive, which means your dog will not get high. Cannabis typically has a mix of CBD, which makes it psychoactive and is needed in small amounts to help treat our animals if they have cancer, similar to adults that want to go for a different approach of treatment compared to undergoing Chemo or Radiation.
The general advice for giving our animals CBD is some trial and error before you find the right dose that works for your dog (or your cat). Start with a small dosage (one squirt) and gradually increase depending on the effects (or reactions) you see from your pet.
It usually takes about 15-30 minutes before you notice any effects from your dog or cat. If you believe your dog or cat is not feeling the effects after an hour, increase the amount (two or three squirts) later in the day or wait until the next day to try a slightly higher dose. Many dog and cat owners have already taken the initiative to try this alternative method for their animals.
