Getting The Dose Right With Different CBD Products
For psychological conditions and poor appetite, try using half the dose above (1 mg of CBD).
Make sure to keep a watchful eye on your dog’s behavior to notice if the effects of CBD are kicking in.

As a team of CBD aficionados and pet lovers obsessed with their puppies, we’ll be more than happy to help you find the right dose of cannabidiol (CBD) for your furry friend.
VETCBD uses full spectrum CBD oil extracted from responsibly-grown, American hemp so that your pet gets the full benefit of the hemp plant.
CBD is a plant-based compound found in the hemp plant. It is non-intoxicating, which means giving it to your pet won’t impair them. CBD oil is extracted from commercially grown hemp, which is a species of the cannabis sativa plant that produces a high amount of CBD, and a low amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, or “THC,” which is the compound in marijuana that delivers a feeling of euphoria or “high.”
How Much CBD Should I Give My Pet?
Generally speaking, you can give your pet a dose of CBD oil every 8 – 12 hours as needed and as tolerated. CBD oil is an effective all-natural supplement that is safe and generally well tolerated by our pets.
Why Would I Give My Pet CBD?
You’ll be happy to know that the full effects of a CBD oil treatment can be experienced by your pet within about 1 – 2 hours after administration. While CBD can begin to work within 15 minutes after dosage, the full benefit of the treatment may take up to two hours.
Our Peanut Butter + Apple CBD Infused Wellness Dog Biscuits come in a few different per-biscuit dosages. These yummy treats can be hard to break into smaller servings, so we recommend buying the per-biscuit dose that’s best for your own pupper and feeding them a whole one each time.
If you’re using our CBD Oils , remember that they come in different concentrations. The amount listed on the label is the total amount of CBD in the whole bottle and not a per-dose amount. So, for example, one 30ml bottle of 600mg CBD Hemp Oil contains 600 total milligrams of CBD, with each 0.25ml dose delivering 5mg of CBD, or enough for a 50 lbs. pup. If this seems confusing, don’t worry! Our bottles have dosage charts right there on the label and every dropper is clearly marked. Between the two, it’ll be super easy for you to figure out how much oil to use.
How much CBD Should I Give My Dog?
Every dog and cat is different. They come in all shapes and sizes. That’s what we love about them! But it does mean that when it comes to CBD, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. It might take some experimenting to find the right amount to give your own fuzzballs. That’s okay—CBD is safe and natural, so no worries if your pet gets a little more or less than needed while you figure things out.
Each dose—whether from oil or biscuits—lasts from 4-8 hours. That’s a big spread, we know, but the duration can vary a lot depending on your pet’s size, activity level, breed, and the severity of their symptoms. But as a good rule of thumb: older pups tend to take longer than younger ones to digest food.
