Simple Pet CBD Calculator & Dosage Info

Hempstrax CBD Pet Calculator

Many pet owners have heard about the benefits of CBD in treating a wide range of ailments that can affect their loved four-legged friends. While we know it is beneficial, it can be difficult to work out just how much is an optimal CBD oil dosage. We at OC Wellness Solutions want to make this an easier process for both experienced and new pet owners. Use our pet CBD calculator to help determine the correct CBD dosage for your dog or cat based on their size or weight. Unlike a CBD dosage chart, it will provide a specific recommendation down to the drop based on your pet’s weight, CBD oil strength, and condition severity.

CBD oil is a great way to provide natural relief for your pet, but it’s important to know how much to give to provide an optimal dosage. The ideal CBD dose may vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated and other factors such as age, weight, and diet.

Comparing types of pet CBD products

One area of confusion for many pet parents is the wide variety of CBD products on the market, both in strength and quality. Ensure that any product you use is lab tested and made with quality ingredients. Ultimately you want the best treatment outcome and quality of life improvement so due diligence in selecting a product and correct dosage is important.

CBD oil is just one of the many forms of CBD products available on the market today. While it is the most popular, it is not necessarily the best option for every pet or situation. Other products to consider include CBD capsules, soft chews, and treats. CBD capsules may be a good option for pets that are picky eaters or for those who prefer not to administer oils. CBD treats and chews are a great way to make giving your pet their daily dose of CBD fun and easy.

This can be especially useful for pets that require a high dosage of CBD without giving a correspondingly higher level of THC. While the entourage effect of having all present cannabinoids does provide real benefits, it’s not ideal for all situations and pets. Broad spectrum oil is a great solution that will work with all pets to promote a healthy life. Some conditions such seizures and cancer can really benefit from high doses of CBD and broad spectrum oil fulfills this need well.

Full spectrum Pet CBD oil contains all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids in the hemp plant. The benefit of having all of them present is what is known as the entourage effect.

Conditions where CBD helps pets

CBD is a fantastic option for helping your pet deal manage a variety of conditions . Some of the most common use cases include idiopathic epilepsy, anxiety, arthritis, pain, inflammation, and cancer. Over a quarter of dogs will be diagnosed with arthritis in their lifetime and CBD is especially helpful as it shares a metabolic pathway with anti-inflammatory drugs. A dog’s weight when on the high side can put extra strain on their joints and taking CBD can provide relief to a furry friend. If your pet’s weight is higher do note it will typically require a high dosage product for the optimal benefit.

For pets that suffer from idiopathic epilepsy CBD infused products can be effective at reducing the frequency of seizures. If your pet suffers from anxiety a daily dosage of CBD can greatly help with improving their quality of life. Ultimately, with it being such a safe product that promotes overall wellness it really can be incorporated into their diet even absent a specific condition. Preventative medicine can often be some of the best and most effective for your dog.

How to give CBD to your pet

Fortunately, with our pet products being in treat or oil form, this makes giving them their proper dosage exceedingly easy. Most dogs aren’t known for their receptiveness to taking medication so make it a fun and enjoyable experience for them. If you’re using a CBD oil tincture a popular method is to apply directly from the dropper on to their favorite food or treat.

Dropping the oil directly into their mouth is perfectly fine and if you make it a happy experience for them they’ll be all the more willing. Trust us, it’s a lot easier than trying to play the “hide the pill in cheese” routine we’re all too used to. Our calculator will provide the exact amount of CBD in drops of your tincture for accurate dosing by your pet’s weight. Therapeutic effects can come on quickly and the right CBD dosage will provide relief from muscle soreness to severe arthritis.

Can you give your pet too much CBD?

While it is low risk, it is recommended to consult with your veterinarian prior to starting any new health regimen. Current rules do not allow veterinarians to prescribe or dispense CBD products but they are free to talk with you about it as part of a health regimen or what therapeutic benefits it may offer. With large doses of CBD your pet could be sleepier or sedated, these are not permanent effects and will wear off with time. Your pets weight in pounds and severity of their condition will help determine the optimal dose for their size. It is best to start with smaller dosages for pets before moving to a strong dose though. It should also be noted that CBD can interact with some medications and it’s important to discuss your treatment goals with your veterinarian and possible effects.

If you are using full spectrum pet CBD oil it is possible that high doses would contain an amount of THC that could make your pet uncomfortable, for those cases a broad spectrum pet CBD oil would be a better option. Pet CBD should be treated as medicine and kept out of easy reach for them, especially if you’re using a tasty treat. Use our online dosage calculator to find the right effect unique to their body and conditions.

Are CBD Dog Treats or is CBD Oil better for my dog?

If your goal is to provide a strong dose then a CBD oil will be an easier and less expensive route, it also allows for precise measurement and dosing by drops. Large dogs and those with more severe health conditions will need a significantly higher amount for an effective dosage and this can be done much easier with a pet CBD tincture dropper. However, for those looking for a low level of dosage and as part of a daily wellness routine, pre-made pet CBD treats can be an easy and well-received route. Finding the perfect dose will take experimentation but our CBD dosage calculator will help give you a starting point. We find starting with a lower amount before moving to a strong dose the best way to get started.

Is there a difference in effectiveness for different types of CBD?

Broad Spectrum oil tinctures are best suited to all types and moderate conditions as it contains zero THC, this makes it is possible to provide a higher CBD dosage without uncomfortable side effects or anxiety triggers. For joint pain management a full spectrum tincture form has benefits of additional cannabinoids that can help provide pain relief. There is no one-size-fits-all dose or perfect type of CBD product, it really depends on the factors behind your decision to start a CBD regimen, your pets body weight, existing health conditions/medications, and tolerance. There isn’t a minimum dosage and we highly recommend slowly increasing to a stronger dose as your dog or cat acclimates. For those who wish to use a product that only contains CBD with no other cannabinoids, an isolate pet CBD oil would be the best choice. If you have questions or concerns about getting your pet started with CBD, our friendly staff at OC Wellness Solutions are happy to talk and guide you to a third party lab tested product.

How much CBD oil is right for helping with separation anxiety?

Unfortunately for pet parents and animals alike, we often find ourselves missing each other as life takes us away from the home. A low dose of CBD is typically enough, and a hemp dog treat can be an excellent part of a CBD regimen to give them relief. Unlike conditions that require higher doses like pain management, CBD works suitable in smaller doses to provide anxiety relief. Prescription drugs can help in extreme instances but a strong dose works in most cases, if you find your pet still having difficulty try offering more CBD. How much CBD constitutes a strong dose will be impacted most by the body weight of your pet. The total CBD needed for small pets differs greatly from large breeds or those with a high body weight..

The right dose is really dependent on your dog’s size and the nature of the condition you are trying to help them with. Dosage calculations will vary based on your pet’s size, small pets won’t tolerate higher doses nearly as well as a larger or heavier dog. Finding the perfect dosage is often best accomplished by slowly increasing the CBD oil dosage until you find a comfortable average dose for your own pet’s particular situation. Keep in mind CBD dog treats will be broken down in their digestive tract and will have a slower onset than a similar strength total CBD product.
