How To Give CBD To Your Pet: Dogs, Cats, Horses & More

Posted by Glory Finnegan on 24th Jun 2019

By now you're hopefully aware of all the advantages CBD can have for both pets and humans. However, adding CBD to a pets daily regime can sometimes be a lot more difficult compared to adding it to your own. As every pet is different, giving CBD to your pet might require special techniques or different types of CBD goodies in order to make the process more efficient.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the best way of giving CBD to your pet, as well as some tips on how to make the process easier.

The Best Ways to Give CBD to Your Dog

The natural earthy taste of hemp could throw off some picky eaters. So, the easiest way to give CBD to your dog, is to give them hemp chews that are already infused with CBD. Dogs are accustomed to lots and lots of treats, so this form won’t take them by surprise and contains ingredients that naturally mask hemp’s flavor.

CBD Dog Chews Dosage:

  • One chew - dogs under 25 lbs
  • Two chew - dogs between 26- 75 lbs
  • Three chew - dogs over 76 lbs

How to:

  • Reward your furry friend with a treat.
  • Crush and add to your pet’s daily meal.


Studies have shown that taking CBD sublingually (under the tongue) allow the compounds within the oil to enter the bloodstream at a faster rate for quick effect. Therefore, if your dog is experiencing an issue that it may need immediate comfort from, CBD oil could be the best method. However, this method is sometimes a bit more tricky to administer to picky or hyperactive pooches and could take some time for you to perfect.

CBD Pet Oil Dosage:

  • Use half a dropper daily, or on an as needed basis.
  • If more is needed, bump up the dosage to a full-dropper each day

How to:

  • Add to food and treats.
    • Tip: Use three pieces of deli meat. Feed your pet the first piece, follow it with a piece that has CBD oil on it, and finish with the last plain piece.
  • Squeeze directly into your pet’s mouth.
    • Tip: Open your dog’s mouth with one arm while administering the CBD into their mouth with the other hand.
    • Tip: Get your dog to sit and scratch under their chin, as their head raises, carefully add the oil to their mouth.
    • Tip: If you administer CBD directly into your dogs mouth, follow it with a treat and a whole lot of praise to make it a positive experience.

What About Cats?

Many pet-owners have expressed their concerns about how to give cbd to cats. Cats are generally known to be more picky than dogs, which can bring on its own unique set of challenges when dispensing CBD oil. Sometimes cat’s particularities can cause administering CBD oil to be a cumbersome process, so we’ll offer a few tricks our customers have shared with us!

CBD Pet Oil Dosage:

  • Use half a dropper daily, or on an as needed basis.
  • If more is needed, bump up the dosage to a full-dropper each day

How to:

  • Add to food and treats.
  • Squeeze directly into your pet’s mouth
    • Tip: If you have a curious cat, hold the CBD oil dropper up and allow them to lick while you squeeze the dropper. Clean the dropper before placing it back inside the bottle.
    • Tip: Dabble some CBD oil on your cat’s paw. Your cat will likely scurry off and proceed to clean their paw, mission complete!

How About Horses?

As many horses large and small alike suffer from age-related difficulties as they develop, CBD has become a spectacular supplement for our equine friends as part of their daily meal. Horses are much larger than cats & dogs, so we created hemp horse pellets for a more powerful dose to fit their large stature.

CBD Horse Pellets Dosage:

  • Add a full scoop (scoop included in the bag) to your horse’s meal daily.
  • Adjust accordingly after one week’s time.


Horses are our riding and jumping companions, so like any good athlete, they can suffer from muscle aches and pains. When this soreness is left untreated, recovery time can take much longer than it needs to. Luckily, you can show your hooved-pal a little love with our new, Neurogan Horse Massage Oil.

CBD Horse Massage Oil Dosage:

  • Squeeze desired amount into your hand.

How to:

  • Use your palm to gently massage the oil into your horse’s sore spots.

What About Other Pets?

It's been shown that all mammals have an endocannabinoid system, capable of being positively impacted by CBD. So, pet owners are using hemp to get creative when it comes to caring for their animals. Are you the owner of rambunctious chicken, hamster, sheep, or rabbit? Perhaps, they could use a little CBD love too. And though you might not find a personalized "rabbit CBD" in a standard CBD collection, our CBD pet oil will be a fantastic addition to your pet's wellness regimen.

Pet Oil Dosage:

  • Use half a dropper daily, or on an as needed basis.
  • Monitor your pet and adjust accordingly.

How to:

  • Add to their food or treats.
  • Squeeze directly into your pet's mouth.
