CBD consists of vegetable cannabinoids. The human and animal body also produces cannabinoids. These substances influence appetite, pain perception, mood and memory. CBD is therefore a natural food supplement for both humans and animals. Just like any CBD oil the CBD oil for animals contains a minimal amount of THC (max 0.05%), making it impossible for your pet to get high or stoned from it.
CBD for animals: how much should I give?
It can already be difficult for yourself to find the best dose of CBD. Dosing CBD oil for animals is all the more difficult, because they cannot indicate themselves what effect they experience. The trick here is to pay close attention to the behavior of your animal. If you find this difficult, you can also use a diary. Report your daily observations here to compare them.
Amount of CBD oil per animal
You can follow the guidelines below when choosing the concentration of CBD oil for animals. We advise you to choose a CBD oil that is marketed specifically for the relevant pet.
Recommended percentage of CBD
CBD oil dog
For all animals, we advise you to choose CBD in the form of oil. This is because you can easily administer oil, for example by dripping it over food. The maxim for dogs is as follows: 1 mg of CBD per day, per 1 kg of the dog's body weight. Always start with a low dose and build it up slowly as needed.
CBD oil cats
Cats are by nature real meat eaters and have a digestive system that is fully equipped for this. CBD is a plant substance that is difficult for a cat to break down. Not all CBD oils are therefore suitable for cats. When Nature Calls advises you to choose a CBD oil that is specifically intended for cats.
CBD oil horse
For horses we assume the same dose as for humans. Horses are sensitive animals and can benefit from CBD. Cannabidiol has a positive effect on appetite, pain perception, mood and memory. Keep this in mind when considering adding CBD to your horse's diet as a dietary supplement. In serious conditions you should always consult your vet.
