Your average CBD capsule formulated for humans is around 10-15 mg, and that’s what we recommend a miniature horse with a body weight of 350 lbs. Please note, this number is an example and is not intended to diagnose, treat , cure or mitigate for your mini horse.
Instead of making a large one-size-fits-all pellet we broke up the large dose into mini-pellets. This allows goats, sheep, and even pocket pets like rabbits to benefit from taking hemp CBD.
It’s surprisingly difficult to find dose-appropriate treats for small pets, so we knew we had to change that. That is a major reason why we have specific chews for mobility, skin & coat, multi-vitamin and calming each with their own mg CBD to accommodate dogs and pets of all sizes.
CBD Dosage for Horses
In fact, some pet owners purposely give their pets high doses of CBD oil to help with insomnia. Common side effects such as nausea or diarrhea may happen, but they are fairly rare and mild. With digestive issues, it’s usually the hemp oil carrier that causes the stomach irritation rather than the CBD.
First find the Dosage Chart specific to the product and variant that you will be administering to your pet for example. PurCBD (Product) & 125mg (variant). From there decide on what strength of dosage you want to give your pet: Minimum, Average, Medium, Strong or Maximum. If not sure rule of thumb would be to start with the minimum.
Find your pet’s weight on the left hand side of the chart and follow the grid to the right until you reach the desired strength you have decided on. When you arrive to the correct block it will give you the suggested drops to administer your pet every 6-8 hours (Note that ½ of the dropper is equivalent to 16 drops). If your suggested dosage requires a larger amount of CBD and says to use another level of CBD, then find the respected dosing chart for that mg of CBD and start off with the minimum dosage for your pet’s body weight.
Dosing CBD oil doesn’t have to be confusing. In fact, some of the best advice we can offer is to monitor your pet’s reaction of how much CBD oil is given and to make adjustments accordingly. Unlike many drugs, there is little to worry about when increasing to a strong dose to a strong dose. Some pets react well to low doses of CBD, while others need a good bit more. We always recommend watching for side effects or abnormalities whenever changing dosages for dogs and cats, but if you see your pet reacting well to a stronger dose, there is nothing to be concerned about.
Each bottle size comes with 30 capsules. The capsules contain different mg of CBD:

Dosage With CBD Treats
You can simply give 1 full dropper per day to your dog because each of the oils have a different concentration.
So if your dog weights 40 pounds the regular dose would be:
However, be patient and remember that your pet may even get used to the routine of taking their CBD oil. Many pet owners have told me that their dogs love licking it up.
