CBD Doses for Dogs or Cats
Whether you’re using hemp CBD oil for anxiety or pain relief, the right dose can vary quite a bit from one situation to the next and you may need to experiment to find the right amount and how often. Start with a dose in the middle of the range and expect to see results in 30–60 minutes. If there is no change after an hour, increase the dosage.

To make long-term use affordable or to give CBD to larger dogs, you may want to compare CBD prices. Each product has a specific set of benefits–feel free to use our web chat or email us at [email protected] if you would like a recommendation for your pet.

What’s the right CBD dose for your cat or dog?
The basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1–5 mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight.
Because potencies vary by CBD product, it’s important to read the label to determine the amount of CBD to offer, not focus on the volume of the product it’s in.
How often should you give your dog or cat CBD?
To control pain, give your dog or cat CBD every 8 hours or as needed. For other uses, give once or twice a day.
CBD Oil for Cats
As a cat owner, one of the most important things in your life is taking care of your baby and giving them the best life possible. At Innovet Pet, we like to think it takes a village to give our pets the best health possible. That’s why we care for the health of your cat as if they were our own.
In our two decades in pet health, we’ve found one major component that may efficiently give your cat the possibility to achieve its state of best health . . . CBD!
Hemp CBD for cats, dogs, and, of course, humans have completely changed the health world. It’s created a bridge between natural health and conventional medicines in a way never seen before.
Whether you’ve taken CBD yourself or have no clue what it is, we’re here to guide you through all the possible benefits and info you need when giving CBD to your cat.
Like humans, cats and dogs have numerous regulatory features and systems that maintain their health and keep it in the best state possible. They’re the body’s first line of defense, but things like diseases, stress, and everyday wear-and-tear can weaken those systems.
Fortunately, all mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This is a bodily system that protects and regulates other regulatory systems by cell-signaling. Unfortunately, the ECS has nothing protecting it from wearing down, until now.
The ECS works by using self-created cannabinoids that activate receptors found in the other regulatory systems. But when the body is under an intense burden because of one of those issues from above, it rarely has enough endocannabinoids to fully fix the problem.
Cannabinoids in hemp, like CBD, act just like endocannabinoids and can supplement the ECS when it’s running low. By doing this, you give the ECS the strength it needs to maintain normalcy in all the systems it protects and regulates, including the nervous, immune, gastrointestinal, and serotonergic (mood & sleep) systems. Just like that, by using CBD, you can naturally improve health by maintaining the body’s natural balance whether that’s yours or your cat’s.
What is CBD For Cats?
CBD is an extract that’s derived from a variety of cannabis plants known as hemp that are non-intoxicating, unlike its cousin marijuana. While called CBD, CBD is only one of the many beneficial compounds found in the extract. Along with CBD, there are hundreds of other cannabinoids as well as aroma compounds like terpenes, and flavonoids that contribute to the benefits. After being extracted, hemp CBD is then placed into tinctures, treats, and topicals.
CBD can help maintain an extensive list of conditions because it can work naturally to improve the maintenance of numerous regulatory functions throughout the body. This happens because all mammals create their own cannabinoids called endocannabinoids.
What Is CBD Oil?
Hemp CBD products can take several different forms. There are CBD treats for cats, topicals, and our favorite for them, CBD oils.
When first extracted CBD is in a vicious, poorly absorbed, and concentrated state and needs some processing to fix those issues. CBD oils are the simplest as you take the CBD extract and mix it with a fatty oil like hemp seed or coconut oil.
When you want precision dosages and the fastest effects for your cat, nothing rivals tinctures/oils. The soft safety dropper allows you to give exactly what your cat needs for the best results. CBD has no unsafe dosage, however, it’s weight dependent and can make your cat tired if they take too much. With cats being so much smaller than us and many dogs, it’s easy to give your cat too much CBD when giving them a treat.
As well, the oil absorbs and starts working much faster than treats that need digesting so you can go slower and find just the right amount. Even if a large dosage doesn’t make your pet tired, it’s often more than what’s needed for proper relief, and you’ll go through the bottle faster than you need to.
We want you to save your money!
Is There A Difference In Hemp Oil And CBD Oil?
Along with CBD and marijuana extracts, there’s a 3rd consumable form that comes from cannabis plants called hemp seed oil. Where the former extracts come from the plant’s flowers, hemp seed or hemp oil comes from cold pressing the seeds. Hemp oil does not contain any cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids.
However, it’s rich with therapeutic omega fatty acids and antioxidants making it beneficial for skin, cardiovascular, and immune health. This also makes it the perfect carrier oil for CBD extracts which need fat to bind with so the body can better absorb it.
Our CBD oil for cats is a combination of full spectrum CBD extract and virgin hemp seed oil.
CBD Oil For Dogs And Horses?
If your feline has a doggy or even horsey companion and you’re wondering if CBD can help them, then you’re in luck. All animals will respond in a similar way to CBD thanks to all of us having an endocannabinoid system that works to protect and maintain several important regulatory systems.
When looking at CBD for other species, you may see it focuses on problems unique to them, but again it helps everyone in the same way.
For dogs, most owners use CBD to help their dogs with anxiety, inflammatory conditions, and epilepsy. CBD is currently most popular for dogs, and we offer quite a few different dog-specific CBD products such as Dog Treats, Mobility Chews, and CBD OIl.
For horses, CBD is popular among trainers, veterinarians, and owners who want to help horses with anxiety, focus, and inflammatory conditions. We offer a few horse-specific CBD products, such as our Calming Paste for fast relief from stress, and our Equine Pellets that cater more to general help.
When giving CBD to any animal, whether that’s a cat, dog, or horse, you can still use our dosage calculator to find their weight-dependent dosage tiers. Again, go slow and work your way up until you find the dosage that works best for them. Remember, you’ll need to allow time for CBD to build up their ECS again, so you may not see full results until 2 weeks or so.
Last, since pets come in many different shapes and sizes, our CBD products use “levels” so you can quickly tell which weight range the product is best suited for.
Where To Get CBD Oil For Cats
Of course, we want you to choose our CBD oil for cats over other companies, but our biggest goal is ensuring you have the resources to give your cat the best health possible. CBD is creating waves, and this has gotten a lot of shady companies looking to make a quick buck.
With care, hemp-derived CBD is extremely safe for your cat, but it’s easy to mess things up and cause harm. So let’s walk through what you should avoid and what you want to look for when buying CBD.
What to Avoid When Buying CBD For Cats:
- Pesticide Use: Avoid CBD products derived from hemp plants grown with pesticides as hemp is a phytoremediation plant that can clean up toxic spills and other harmful chemicals.
- Isolates Over Full or Broad Spectrum: Isolates lack the terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids besides CBD which greatly stunts its benefits.
- Low Effort Companies: CBD can spoil when stored in the heat or sunlight, as well, CBD should come from lab-tested hemp, so it doesn’t contain unsafe levels of THC.
What to Look For When Buying CBD
- Certificate of Analysis (COA): This is awarded to companies who have had their CBD independently tested for purity, quality, and contaminates.
- Terms Indicating Quality: Look for terms like organic, soy-free, and non-GMO hemp CBD.
- CBD Oil Not Hemp Oil: CBD oils often include hemp seed oil as a necessary component, but many shading companies will pawn off hemp seed oil as CBD oil.
- CO2 Extraction Method: There are several ways to extract cannabinoids including alcohol, but the preferred method by far for safety and purity is CO2 extraction.

Is CBD Right For Your Cat?
None of us want to think about all the health issues that can affect our lovable cats, but we have to if we want to give them the longest and healthiest life possible. Fortunately, CBD is helping to make things a whole lot easier.
Whether your cat needs help with a short-term bout of anxiety or chronic illness like arthritis, CBD is here to help.
Many owners have found it has worked so well that their pet doesn’t have to go on a prescription drug that has more serious side effects.
As well, its preventive nature can help keep your cat with a clean bill of health. It’s been absolutely wonderful to see how this little plant has helped millions with so many issues. That’s why we think CBD is essential to your pet’s first aid kit and should be in everyone’s medicine cabinet.
