There has been a lot of information citing the benefits of using CBD oil and not just for us as humans but also for our pets, especially man’s best friend, our dogs.

This is because a dog has the same endocannabinoid system that is commonly found in human beings.

CBD is a cannabis oil that is a natural element of the Sativa plant species. There are some positive benefits for giving your dog CBD oil, but many dog owners have a common question: how to give CBD oil to dogs?

With that in mind, here are some suggestions to help you out. 

Place the CBD oil directly in their mouth. 

Placing the CBD oil directly into the mouth of your dog is considered one of the easiest and best ways to administer it.

Direct placement is key because your pet will get the required dosage and recommended dosage.

It should be noted that the dosage will vary depending on your breed and size of your dog. You can administer it directly by drawing up the oil and carefully moving it to your dog’s mouth.

This is so you can get a good aim for getting the oil in there. When doing this, be careful you don’t make your dog gag, as this could make them feel threatened and worried.

Slowly squeeze the recommended oil drops by using the dropper. Make sure that your dog has swallowed everything. After doing this, it would be a good idea to give them a treat to feel rewarded for good behaviour. 

Mix the CBD oil with their regular food or something tasty

There is no denying that there is one big thing dogs have in common: they love their food.

They would eat it all day long if we let them.

So this could be seen as an alternative and easy option to administer CBD oil. If you want to do it this way, then adding CBD oil to your dog’s favourite meal will guarantee that you have an empty bowl at the end of it. 

This is one of the best methods if you know that your dog is a little fussy.

This is because the CBD oil is masked with the flavour of their food. So they are none the wiser.

You could also mix the CBD oil with a tasty treat, such as cooked chicken, for example. A meal they may not ordinarily get every day, but something they love. Again this can mask the flavour and be consumed with no issues. 

Mix the CBD oil with their water

Another thing you could try would be to squeeze the CBD oil into their drinking water.

The thing to remember with this is that they won’t get the correct dosage of oil straight away. Many dogs don’t tend to drink a bowl of water in one go, so you may find that they will come back to it.

You might also want to bear in mind that water and oil don’t mix too well. So it will be noticeable that something is in their water. If your dog is fussy, this might not be the best option.
