You can give 1-5mg of CBD per ten pounds of body weight. For smaller animals under 10 lbs, you can use 0.2mg per pound of body weight. Since CBD generally doesn't
come with adverse side effects, you can offer more or less based on how severe your pet's symptoms are. For example, you can give a 10-pound cat 1mg of CBD for general wellness and
5mg for pain. If you have a 50lb dog, you can administer 5mg for wellness and 25mg for chronic pain or severe anxiety. Remember that CBD works best when taken daily, like a
supplement. It won't help with acute pain or anxiety in one dose, so consistency is key.
When administering CBD to your pet, it’s best to start with a small serving size to see how it will affect them and work your way up until the desired effects are
achieved. Whichever amount you choose to start with, administer it consistently twice a day for several days. See how your pet responds and then increase accordingly. A good place to
start is 0.25mg per kilogram of body weight. In pounds, this would be about 1mg per 10 lbs of body weight. For example, a 9mg introductory serving is a good place to start for a 90-
pound dog. If you’re using a Lazarus Naturals pet tincture that contains 20mg CBD per dropper, a half-dropper would be a great dose to begin with.
You can use the guide on the label to start, but since every pet will react to CBD differently, you may need to increase or decrease the serving. If you’re looking
for general wellness, start with 1mg per 10 lbs of body weight (or 0.25mg per kilogram of body weight). 3mg per 10 pounds would be a moderate dose for pain, and 5mg per 10 lbs would
be a high dose for managing severe anxiety or pain.
