Dog CBD: What’s the Right Dose?
As a dog owner, you may have looked into getting CBD to aid in their struggles. Dog CBD has gained popularity in recent years, and there’s a lot of information out there that can potentially be misleading. Each product’s CBD concentration varies, so it’s important to follow the dosing guide on the package. Keep reading for dog CBD tips and the natural solution.
Dogs of all ages can experience anxiousness or stress due to separation, re-homing, loud noises and more. Read our blog here for full details on dog anxiousness causes, signs & solutions.
Rule of Weight - Tips to Follow
Whether it’s an oil or solid dose form, the amount of CBD you give your dog will depend on their weight. As mentioned above, one size most definitely does not fit all when it comes to CBD dosage - general guidelines can be confusing on the internet, ranging anywhere from 0.25-1 mg of CBD per every 5-10 pounds of body weight 1-2 times daily (yes, this is a very large range).
CBD dosage can also be determined by the production process, the type of CBD in the product and how much CBD effectively reaches the digestive system. See below for some tips as well as things to look for when shopping for dog CBD.
✓ Try using CBD if your dog is experiencing symptoms of pain, inflammation, immunity issues, stress, anxiety, joint pain, skin issues and more.
✓ If you’re worried about giving your dog CBD, start their dose off small and increase as necessary.
✓ If you anticipate events where your dog may become stressed or anxious (such as fireworks or you’re expecting a house full of people), try giving your dog their dose about 30-45 minutes beforehand to help keep your pet calm and relaxed.
✓ Give your dog CBD to ease aches and occasional discomfort, stiffness & soreness.
✓ Use dog CBD as an “as needed” solution.
✓ ALWAYS check the recommended dosage on the product packaging for your dog’s CBD/weight ratio.

Getting to The Good Stuff
Our team at PetFX® created an entire brand specifically with calming solutions in mind. While the majority of our CannaLove™ products contain de-stressing and calming properties, our doctor-formulated CannaLove™ CBD K-9 Support Soft Chews™ are the perfect way to maintain calmness during separation. Using proprietary patented technology, the secret is an enteric coating (this is just a fancy way of saying that our chews allow for higher absorption as they travel through their digestive system). The coating protects them from premature digestion from enzymes and stomach acids - this means more of the good stuff makes it to their stomach. Containing naturally active ingredients, these beef-flavored chews each contain 2 mg of Cannabidiol (CBD) made from non-psychoactive hemp that effectively reaches their digestive system for relief.
