how to give CBD oil to dogs

CBD is becoming increasingly popular every day due to some of the amazing benefits it provides for your furry friends. Unfortunately dogs just know that they may not enjoy the taste or texture, that is why we have made this guide on how to give CBD oil to dogs. It will give you some ideas to encourage or trick your pup into getting CBD into their body.

How to give CBD oil to dogs

Mix it with a treat

It's no secret dogs like to eat and most have a favorite treat, this makes it easy to sneak your dog's heartworm medicine into their system and in this case the CBD. Oftentimes whatever treat your dog enjoys will hide both the flavor and texture of whatever CBD product you are sharing with them. This will allow them to get the CBD oil into their system and also make you look like the good guy for giving them a treat, a win-win scenario!

Some of the best treats to try are both healthy and with a strong flavor, you know your dog will love. These can be anything from dog biscuits to chicken jerky and everything in between as long as they are good for a dog’s health. One of the products we have had success with is Brown Beggars sweet potato slices.

Find a CBD product your dog will love

Every CBD product is similar but some have different flavors textures or overall compositions. This can make it tricky to make sure you are buying a product your dog will like but there are certain products that can help with this. Natural Doggie makes a CBD oil infused coconut oil that is great for dogs as most love the natural flavor of the product. Another great part about this product is that the coconut oil carries additional benefits that help boost your pet's health along with the CBD.

If you're wondering how to give CBD oil to dogs this product is great, it masks the texture and taste to the dogs eating it. Though this product is great it might not be the right fit for your furry friend so look around if they do not enjoy eating CBD infused coconut oil, or possibly add it to other treats.  

Being direct

Some dogs are just picky towards everything and notice even the slightest change to their favorite snack. In these situations, it may be best to try and apply it directly to your dog's mouth through a dropper or a spoon. Though this method can be harder and might even make you feel a little bad it is effective at getting CBD into your dog's system which will ultimately help them out.

Add the CBD to your dog's food

One thing every dog needs is their food and most dogs don't hesitate to clean their bowls once they start eating. A simple way to get your dog to take their CBD is to add it directly to their daily food consumption. This will ensure they will eat it and will not be that much more of an extra step. Another benefit of this is that they will not be eating treats all day but rather their regulated dog food making sure they stay healthy.

Most dry dog foods will actually mask both the taste and texture of the CBD oil product, some wet food however may not be accepting of the compound and may separate in the bowl or on the plate. Make sure your dog is not passing up the CBD oil as they eat as some dogs have been known to be sneaky about this.

As with anything regarding your pet’s diet, it is wise to contact your veterinarian as sometimes they will have other options you can try. CBD is a great thing if done correctly and is 100% safe for dogs due to it being THC free. we hope this helped you solve the problem on how to give CBD oil to dogs.
