Nine times out of ten, pet owners give their furry friends CBD as an oil supplement. This means that you're probably going to be dosing your pet with CBD in drop form or with a syringe. CBD oil is a great way to introduce your pet to CBD and is also a great option if your pet is already taking CBD regularly.
When it comes to CBD dosages for pets, it's all about their weight. The bigger your pet is, the more CBD they're going to need. If you don't know how much your pet weighs, do your best to weigh them before you start administering CBD.
Next, you'll need to know the concentration of the CBD oil that you're giving to your pet. You can usually find this inside the package. The higher the concentration, the smaller the dosage. Choose smaller concentration levels if your pet is on the smaller side, and vice versa.

How To Give Your Pet CBD?
Giving your pet cannabidiol is a lot simpler than most other medications because it's such a flexible compound!
CBD oil can be given to pets in a few different ways. You can either use the syringe to administer the CBD directly into their mouth - or add the drops onto one of their favorite treats or meals.
Can My Pet Overdose On CBD?
Like any medication or supplement, your pet can overdose on CBD. However, animals have an extremely high tolerance to CBD, so much so that accidentally overdosing them on a CBD product would be very difficult.
That said, it can happen. Fortunately, the side effects of a CBD overdosage aren't very severe. In most cases, it will only make your pet lethargic and tired for the rest of the day. In fact, some pet owners intentionally give their pets higher dosages of CBD to help with their insomnia.
All of that being said, every animal is different, so if you do notice any concerning side effects, don't hesitate to contact your local vet as quickly as possible. In addition, CBD can reduce the effectiveness of certain medications in higher dosages, so consult with your vet first if your pet is on any regular medications.
