cbd for dogs

It's no secret that our furry friends can benefit from CBD in the same way that humans do. That's part of why many pet owners have been turning to CBD to help maintain health and wellness for their pups.

But, after you've talked with the vet and determined that CBD is a good fit for your pooch, you still have to consider a few things to get them comfortable and accustomed to their new CBD regimen. Perhaps most importantly, you always ask yourself: how much CBD oil should I give my dog? Or, what’s the right CBD dose?

When introducing your pet CBD for the first time, Bluebird always recommends starting CBD oil dosage low and slow. The standard serving size for our Companion CBD Oil is about five drops of oil. This serving includes 5 mg of cannabinoids plus terpenes and other good parts of the hemp plant that contribute to the entourage effect for your fur baby. This is a great starting amount of CBD dosage for dogs and cats, regardless of size. Every pup (and every cat, for that matter) will respond differently to CBD oils depending on their own unique genetic makeup, so it’s best to start with a minor amount to see how they respond.  

There are a couple of ways to deliver Bluebird’s CBD to your pup with ease and minimal fuss. If you’re using Companion CBD Oil, you’ll likely find the greatest success by
drizzling it directly on top of your food or mixing it with CBD dog treats. You may also drop an amount of CBD directly into their mouth.

The other important thing to keep in mind when you give your dog a new CBD regimen is consistency. Try to give them the same product at approximately the same time every day. After two to three weeks, you can begin increasing the number of servings or the amount per serving. Remember, too much CBD oil is not good for your dog.
