CAT and SMALL DOG DOSING
CBD dosing varies from product to product. Based on our extensive experience, the dose of Peak Therapeutics Hemp Extract has been determined to be 0.25-2.0+ mg /kg (2.2 pounds) by mouth TWICE daily for most cats and dogs. Precise dosing is based on volume. The cat/small dog product is 50 mg/ml. Give 0.5 ml (2.5 mg) orally or mixed with food for every 5 pounds (2.3 kg) of body weight TWICE daily. Increase or decrease the dose as needed to achieve the desired effect. Our recommendations for dosing are to start in the middle of the range and adjust from there, trying to find the minimally effective dose. We recommend most patients be started at 1.0 mg/kg orally TWICE daily (as described above) for 2 weeks. If the desired effect is achieved, we recommend decreasing in small increments or just leaving it. It is very hard to hurt a patient with low doses of CBD. If the desired effect is not achieved we recommend increasing the dose in 25% increments for a week at a time until the desired effect is achieved.
Drops can be placed on food or into your pet’s mouth. If your dog or cat does not like the taste, try mixing it with flavored yogurt, canned food or a small amount of cheese.
*All of our products contain less than 0.03% THC by weight*
Here is the dosing based on lean (ideal) body weight of your pet:
< 5 pounds 0.05 ml TWICE daily
5-10 pounds 0.05-0.10 ml TWICE daily
10-15 pounds 0.05-0.15 ml TWICE daily
15-20 pounds 0.10-0.20 ml TWICE daily
The 10 mg dog treats are ideally suited to fully manage 10-20 kg (22-44 pounds) in body weight. They can also be used to supplement dogs at a lower dose who may be less effected or for maintaining homeostasis (balance) in those dogs. The treats can also replace a certain portion of the needed drops for various sized dogs. You can also give theses treats to cats as they are highly palatable. Cats typically would get ¼-1/2 treat TWICE daily
