The Cannimal Dosing Protocol: CBD Dosage for Dogs

The Cannimal Dosing Protocol: CBD Dosage for Dogs

Finding the proper CBD dosage for dogs, cats, and other animals is one of the most common questions- and it should be!

Here at Cannimal we advocate for smart, ethical, practical dosing and CBD safety for pets.

Whether you are looking for pain relief for your dog, dog arthritis treatment, cat pain management, dog cancer treatment, cat cancer treatment, dog seizure treatment, or anti anxiety for dogs, a dosing protocol is essential to your success.

We recommend you always start with a Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Extract with less than .03% THC as a treatment for your pet.

Read our step by step protocol below. Always remember "titrate up" and observe your animal's sensitivity.

Cannabinoids in Full Spectrum HEMP OIL interact with the Endocannabinoid system. This system of receptors is all over the body- but most are in the brain, gut, and skin.

This system regulates homeostasis or "balance" in the mammalian body.

The Endocannabinoid system may be "activated" differently at different times- and can vary from animal to animal.

KEEP IN MIND EVERY ANIMAL WILL HAVE A UNIQUE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM- IE. ONE DOG WHO WEIGHS 20 POUNDS MAY NEED 2-3X MORE HEMP OIL EXTRACT THAN ANOTHER DOG WHO WEIGHS 20 POUNDS! THIS IS WHY CLOSE OBSERVATION AND CONSISTENT DOSING IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT WHEN SUPPLEMENTING AN ANIMAL WITH HEMP OIL FOR DOGS, HORSES OR CATS.

5 STEPS TO SUCCESSFULLY DOSING CANNIMAL'S FORMULAS:

1. START WITH A LOW DOSE- for small animals under 40 pounds start with 1 pump twice a day of our 150mg formulas.

For larger animals over 40 lbs, start with 2 pumps twice a day of our 250mg formula.

Our 150mg product is appx 2.5 mg per pump.

Our 250mg product is appx 5mg per pump.

Our 2000mg Equine product is appx 40mg per ml.

2. APPLY DIRECTLY IN MOUTH- placing hemp oil in food lowers its bioavailability. Use our pump bottle to administer directly in the mouth or let them lick out of a bowl. Ingesting Cannabinoids in food or a treat, despite being the easiest method of delivery, is not particularly efficient at absorbing hemp oil in high concentrations and can take as long as two hours to work.

If you have not had good results with ANY HEMP OIL products, apply hemp oil sublingually and stop putting it in your animal’s food.

*The U.S. National Library of Medicine published a study, (Ujvary and Hanus, 2016), detailing how the liver metabolizes Cannabinoid compounds. Called the “first pass effect”, CYP450 oxidases enzymes in the liver, which have mixed functions, break Cannabinoids down, reducing cannabidiol concentration significantly before sending the leftovers to the bloodstream.

3. OBSERVE- keep a close eye on your animal's reaction. Wait 30 minutes. CBD safety for pets is a top priority.

(30 minutes is the CLINICALLY PROVEN ONSET for Cannabidiol).

Look for what we call The Relaxation Response:

Muscle Tone Softens
Ears and eyes get softer, quieter, less fidget-y.

This desired “RELAXATION RESPONSE” applies to both pain and anxiety (How do you feel after your pain is relieved? Do you feel more relaxed? Do you feel more relieved?)

Keep titrating up (ie. applying/giving the same dose) every 30 minutes until you get a desired response.

4. BE CONSISTENT - for best results, administer Cannimal’s Hemp Oil formulas everyday at the same time. Chronic conditions such as pain and inflammation may take up to 7 days of consistent administration before you see improved mobility.

5. TAKE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN YOUR ANIMAL'S HEALING- watch for signs of improvement and titrate up (or down) based on your observations.

Remember. No two animals are the same. Full Spectrum Hemp Oil products are not pharmaceutical drugs manufactured or created to produce a "generic" response.

Take your time and use our step by step dosing protocol to get results!
