CBD Drops and Treats for Pets
We Know Ways to help your Pets!
You may already know the benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids with humans, but did you know that your pets can gain nearly the same benefits?
Pets have an endocannabinoid system just like humans do. This means you can provide a relief from discomfort and anxiety for your fur-babies with CBD treats and drops from Hemp Oil Rockstar.

CBD Treats - Spoiling Your Pet with Cannabis
Like with CBD for humans, CBD products and other beneficial cannabinoids are best when administered via drops. However, with many pets, getting them to either take drops immediately (right into the mouth) or over food (mixed in or dripped over pet food) is difficult. This is why treats of all sorts have become so popular.
Typical pet treats are simple biscuit style wafers or bone-shaped crisp treats. More products have been introduced in recent years to include jerky treats, chewable sausage treats and many more.
Cats, like dogs, may appreciate the many choices available (not only for cats, they may love dog treats too).
Most treats have a clear dosage indicated on the product packaging. For most pets, it is better to stick close to the package recommendations.
Helping your Pet with CBD Drops
If your dog or cat is suffering from discomfort from things such as aches, pains, separation anxiety, storm jitters and more, you may wish to give CBD a try. Aging pets are similar to humans – they have inflammation associated with aches and pains. CBD in veterinarian studies has shown to help with discomfort while reducing inflammation.
CBD for Dogs – Canine Dosing for CBD
Dogs are a bit unique when it comes to offering them cannabinoids. They’re very sensitive to THC. This is why it’s a good idea to be sure and administer low THC or No THC cannabinoids (like CBD isolates) whenever possible to ensure better health. All of our products have been carefully selected to provide the best in pet health while ensuring their safety.
There are Plenty of Options
Do you have a cat which seems impossible to calm? Does your cat bounce around with anxiety? Do you have an aging feline who may need a little boost in their health?
CBD for cats is not new. Cannabinoids have been tested and respond to your cat’s endocannabinoid system.
The same products can be used on Dogs and Cats
Although you may have a picky feline or a pampered pooch, you can often save $ with CBD for your pets if you purchase just one product for dogs and cats. The dosing matters in any case. For more information on dosing, you can read more in our site!
The Team at Hemp Oil Rockstar keeps abreast of studies and findings in the health field to help educate the consumers of CBD products.
Your Pets can take CBD: A Cat’s Tale
As relayed from Mary Lopez Carter:
One of my good friends called me late last year. She was panicked because her pet cat, which certainly was a family member, was diagnosed with seizures. The vet was unsure of the best treatment for the feline companion. My pal found out I was offering CBD for friends and family and she gave me a call.
The rest of the story is wonderful. Her cat has been seizure free since I provided her with some CBD oil. There are many CBD oils which you can use for pets – some are better than others. We are affiliated with a number of reputable manufacturers of quality CBD for animals and we’d gladly recommend them.
One of the biggest worries we had initially was “HOW MUCH TO DOSE?” when it came to the various pets. We did some research and found some great articles that contributed more information to our customers. We passed this information along – making many people much happier (see the article link below for the full article).
Future research and experience will give us more information on dosing levels and intervals. Current recommendations for oral dosing of CBD in dogs and cats are 0.02 mg/kg to 0.1 mg/kg given twice daily. According to James Gaynor, DVM, DACVA, DACVPM, of Peak Performance Veterinary Group, for pain management most dogs do well at 0.05 mg/kg twice daily, while cats do well at 0.025 mg/kg twice daily.
Getting your pet to take CBD Oil
If you purchase CBD Oil designed for pets, then you’re more than likely to have a pet will be modestly eager to take their dose. This is because most pet-only CBD providers have been using flavorings (like salmon or beef) to make their oils more enticing for cats and dogs. There are some pet who refuse the drops, pretty much no matter what flavor they have.
If this is the case or you have only human-grade CBD oil, you can use regular CBD oil (peppermint or fancy flavors for humans may not be the best choices for pets) when it’s time to dose your pets.
After you’ve performed the basic calculation based upon your pet’s size, consider how you will provide that to the pet for them to consume. We’ve discovered some of the following very useful techniques.
With the following, mix in the CBD oil before giving to the pet:
- Peanut Butter
- Bacon fat
The amount of the mixable above really doesn’t have to be large. A small amount of peanut butter does wonders for the CBD oil we offer our dogs. Same goes for the rest of the mix-ins. The flavor is more important than the quantity of mix-in.
When I have the CBD oil mixed with one of the above, I simply offer the spoon to the pet and it disappears quickly. Perfect dosing.
