CBD oil for dogs
In recent years, many owners in the Netherlands and Belgium have joined their dogs administering CBD oil. And many of those owners do not want to go back, because the choice for their pet is so positive. Read more…
Most of the people buy oil from brands such as Jacob Hooy, Kruidvat and Medihemp. In principle, these are products for humans and therefore the wishes of the dog have not been taken into account. The main consequence of this is that the smell and taste are unpleasant. This already applies to humans, but it is even more important for dogs. It is therefore wise to take a separate CBD oil for your dog.
The most suitable CBD oil
Then the question is of course which oil to choose. At Cannabisolie.nl we have already done the research into that choice for you, and we will explain why our pet oil is so suitable for your dog.
CBD oil from the aforementioned brands, such as Jacob Hooy, which are popular among human users, contain hemp seed oil and / or olive oil. This is a different story with our products for pets: fish oil is the supplement. Salmon oil, for example, or sardine oil. And that fish oil is of an exceptional quality, because we know how important this additive is for pets.
The correct dosage of CBD oil
It is not possible to summarize in one sentence what dosage each dog should receive, because each dog is a different case.
And of course every CBD oil is different, because the concentration of CBD differs per oil.
Fortunately, there are a few rules of thumb you can use if you intend to give your dog CBD oil.
-1.- Use 1 drop of CBD oil per 5 kilograms of weight with each administration. So let's say the dog weighs 20 kilos, that would be: divide 20 by 5 = 4 drops at a time.
-2.- Maintain a maximum of 3 applications per day. Continuing on the example above, that would be 3 times 4 = 12 drops in a day.
-3.- And an important advice for when you are just starting to try: start with a low dose to be on the safe side. For example 2 drops in a day, 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening XNUMX. Keep this on for a week to see how the dog reacts to it, and then - after about a week - the dose can be gradually increased.
The administration of the oil to the dog
Because it is normal among human users to drop the CBD drops under the tongue, many owners are inclined to try this on their dogs as well. But that is unwise. What is the best method? Very simple: use dog food.
First, it is wise to have the CBD oil at room temperature. It is also necessary to shake vigorously before use. And then the administration can begin.
Drop the desired amount of drops on the food or snack and the dog will simply enjoy it on its own. It is important that the dog gets all the oil. Only do it with a portion of which the dog is sure to eat everything.
Can the dog overdose?
Just to get straight to the point: no, you don't have to worry about a possible overdose. That's because CBD is not a psychoactive substance, making it impossible for the dog to get high or stoned.
There is no known level of intake of CBD at which the effects suddenly became much more intense, or in any other way dangerous. CBD is not overwhelming for the body, not even at a high dose, and therefore also not in dogs. So you don't have to feel guilty. The risks are negligible.
THC oil for dogs
Some owners who have tried CBD oil on their dog for a while become curious about that other oil: THC oil, and sometimes want to know how it will affect their pet. And that is possible.
Cannabisolie.nl does not supply THC oil, but it does all tools you need to make your own THC oil. Would you like to know more about THC oil because you want to learn more about it first? Let us know. We can tell you all about it.
