Every cat is different, so we highly recommend starting with a low dose. That way, your cat can get used to the new chemical in his system.
Here is our recommended progression for giving your cat CBD oil:
- Start with 1 drop of CBD oil ONCE per day.
- Continue administering 1 drop once per day for one week.
- If you don’t see any effects or your cat needs more relief, increase the dosage to 1 drop TWICE per day.
- Continue administering 1 drop twice per day for one week.
- If necessary, increase the dosage to 1 drop THREE TIMES per day.
- Continue administering 1 drop three times per day for one week.
If necessary, increase the dosage again per the above pattern.
You’ll notice in the above progression that the number of drops never changes. Only the frequency with which you administer those drops changes. If you find yourself administering one drop more than four times per day, you can try increasing the number of drops given at one time. Start with two drops and work the steps as outlined above.
NOTE: Like humans, every cat is different and how the CBD will work will be different from each individual cat Experimentation is the way to go, to find what works best on your cat. Start with a small dose and then gradually scale up until you find that "sweet spot" that gives the results you are looking for.
