Starting a CBD Routine for Your Pet

Many pet owners have discovered the benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD) for their pets. Whether your pet struggles with inflammatory conditions, separation anxiety, and/or digestive issues, CBD may help your pet live happier and healthier. Starting a CBD routine for your furry family member will help them experience more long-term, wellness benefits. CBD interacts with your pet’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to help maintain homeostasis or balance in their body. Similar to us, most animals have an ECS. The ECS plays a vital role in managing your pet’s appetite regulation as well as their responses to pain and inflammation. CBD engages with receptors in the ECS to help promote overall wellness. When you incorporate CBD into your pet’s daily routine, they may experience many wellness benefits including helping with fear-related anxiety, reducing inflammation, increasing mobility, and much more. If you are looking to start a CBD routine for your pet, we have some tips to help you get started. 

Determine How Can CBD Benefit Your Pet

Before integrating CBD into your pet’s daily routine, you may want to consider how CBD can best benefit your pet. 

Starting a CBD Routine for Your Pet

In specific situations like traveling or visiting the groomer, your pet may benefit more from using CBD 30 minutes to an hour prior to the situation. For more long-term issues like severe separation anxiety or decreased mobility, a CBD routine can help your pet by building up the CBD in their systems. Before giving your pet CBD, we recommend discussing additions or changes to your pet’s diet with your veterinarian. As a pet parent, you know what your pet is struggling with, so you can identify whether CBD will be more beneficial in specific scenarios or as a daily routine.

Finding Your Pet’s CBD Serving Size

A common question when getting started with CBD for your pet is “how much CBD do I give my pet?” This is a great question to ask! It may be helpful to start with the recommended serving size of the product for your pet and gradually increase or decrease as needed to achieve the desired effects. The benefits of CBD correspond to giving your pet the appropriate serving size. In a 2018 study, researchers suggest 2mg of CBD per kilogram of body weight twice daily for dogs with Osteoarthritis may help increase their comfort and activity. Please reference the product’s packaging to determine the right serving size for your pet as this depends on the amount of CBD in the product and the delivery method. 

The Delivery Method(s) for Your Pet

There are many different CBD products available for your pet, so finding the delivery method that works best for your pet is an important step in starting a CBD routine. You know your furry friend’s tastes and preferences the best. With delivery methods ranging from CBD treats to CBD tinctures to even CBD dog food, you are sure to find the best way to incorporate CBD into your pet’s daily routine. 

Consistency with Your Pet’s Serving Size

With your pet’s CBD routine, consistency is key! By giving your pet a consistent serving size over a 30-day period, the CBD will build up in your pet’s system for long-term wellness benefits. Each pet is different, so the time it takes for CBD to build in their system will likely vary. After maintaining a consistent serving size for a month, you can monitor your pet’s response to CBD and make adjustments to their serving size as needed.
