General Dosage for Dogs:
Dosage: 120mg Pet Oral Drops* means each 30ml bottle has 120mg of hemp terpenes. Here is an example of how many hemp terpenes are in a 1mL dropper:
Small: up to 27 pounds - 1 treat per day or 1mg (1/4 dropper of 120mg bottle) drops once a day
Medium: 28-57 pounds - 1-2 treats per day or 2mg (1/2 dropper of 120mg bottle) drops up to twice a day
Large: 58-97 pounds - 2-3 treats per day or 3mg (3/4 dropper of 120mg bottle) drops up to twice a day
Extra Large: 98-137 pounds - 3-4 treats per day or 4mg (1 dropper of 120mg bottle) drops up to twice a day
Giant: 138+ pounds - 4-5 treats per day or 4mg (1 dropper of 120mg bottle) drops up to three times a day
*Other concentrations will have different amounts of terpenes per dropper. Please check the bottle label for specific dosing instructions.
Start dosage based on the size of your pet, adjust according to size over the first 3 days. By the fourth day, there should be a noticeable change. If not, increase the dosage by a little - 2 additional treats or 1/4 dropper - and monitor improvement. Slowly increase the dosage until the desired effects are achieved, or for 2 weeks. If no change is noticed at the 2-week interval, stay with the current dose and stay there until change is noticed.
General Dosage for Cats:
Cats can tolerate more oil, mg per kg, than a dog as their systems are that much faster.
We recommend cats start with the 120mg bottle and administer 1/8-1/4 of the dropper full, depending on size and issue. Watch for signs of improvement.
Improvement: On day 4 you can drop the dosage down to once a day for another few days. In another 4-5 days, drop the dosage to every 2-3 days. You'll know if you need to continue with the once a day dosage or if once every few days or once a week is enough for your pet.
No improvement: Raise the level by 1/4 dropper and give once a day, for another 3 days. If still no change, increase by another 1/4 dropper and again monitor. Continue slowly raising until the required results are present.
The dosage will differ with each cat. Some cats need the drops once a day, some every 2-3 days, and some are good with once a week. No one knows you fur baby like you do and you'll know how often you'll need to give it to them
Note: Keep an eye on your cat to make sure they are tolerating it well. Occasionally cats will get diarrhea due to the coconut oil as it may be too rich for them. This side effect will stop after a few days. If required, lower the dosage until it does pass. The stool should return to normal in 1 or 2 days
