Whether you’re using hemp CBD oil for anxiety or pain relief, the right dose can vary quite a bit from one situation to the next and you may need to experiment to find the right amount and how often. Start with a dose in the middle of the range and expect to see results in 30–60 minutes. If there is no change after an hour, increase the dosage.

What’s the right CBD dose for your cat or dog?
Because potencies vary by CBD product, it’s important to read the label to determine the amount of CBD to offer, not focus on the volume of the product it’s in.
A: Vomiting, lethargy, inappetence, and diarrhea are the most common clinical signs reported. Ataxia can occasionally occur with large ingestions.
Q: What about interactions with other medications? Any long-term effects to be concerned about?
A: Products sold as “soft chews” can have an osmotic effect when large amounts of chews are ingested and pull fluid from the body into the gastrointestinal tract. In mild cases, this can lead to diarrhea and dehydration. In severe cases, hypernatremia, hyperglycemia, hyperkalemia, azotemia, and acidosis can occur. Aggressive fluid therapy, while monitoring hydration status and electrolytes in these pets, is critical.
A: Most cases need no treatment, aside from symptomatic care for gastrointestinal upset if it occurs. If it’s a large dose, where the THC content might be a factor, mild sedation, urinary incontinence, hyperesthesia, and ataxia could develop, and the pet should be confined to prevent injury from misadventure. If you see significant signs that look like THC toxicity, treat the pet in front of you and provide IV fluid support, anti-nausea medication, and good nursing care as needed.
