Should you Put CBD oil in Your Dog’s Food? How to Give a Dog CBD Oil

Interested in giving your dog CBD Oil? If you are, then you’re probably wondering how to properly give it to your dog. CBD Oil is usually administered orally to dogs using Pet CBD Tinctures and can also be a home remedy for dog’s itchy skin an applied to areas of skin allergies or itchiness. When administering CBD Oil for your dog, you should always consider using the correct serving size for your dog.

Can you Mix CBD Oil with Your Dog’s Food?

Of course you can; CBD Oils are designed to be ingested. The way pet parents administer CBD Oil Servings is by pet tinctures orally. Let’s say your dog doesn’t like taking the CBD Tincture Oil, then you’ll need to get creative when it’s time to give your dog his serving size. It’s always a good idea to cover the flavor if your dog doesn't like it. With that being said, you could also apply the serving size to your dog’s favorite treat.

We’ve noticed that our dogs love freeze-dried treats, and since they are freeze-dried, they absorb the CBD Oil, masking the taste. Once digested, it will then begin to take effect. Treats work well with CBD Oil especially if your dog loves treats!

How CBD Eaten Works in Your Pet’s Body

Just like humans, Dogs and Cats have an endocannabinoid system. Thisnetwork of receptors helps your pet’s body stay in good shape. Paws Elite’s CBD Oil contains Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC) and our known as phytocannabinoids, which is then entered into your dog’s body to promote good health. Our product also contains terepenes and flavonoids. Terpenes bind to receptors in the pets body and carry a huge amount of health benefits. Flavonoids are phytonutrients that serve as cell messenger with their own health-promoting benefits.

All these compounds work together in a way where their individual strengths increase, causing your pet’s body to have a positive response to CBD Oil.

Cannabinoid receptors are found all around the body, including the GI Tract. How does CBD Oil work with the receptors? Well, it activates pathways which end up stimulating the endocannabinoid system indirectly. In short, when your dog ingests CBD Oil, it is then broken down and starts to get absorbed in the stomach and intestines. This is how it starts to get into the bloodstream and in your dog’s body.

Give your Dog CBD Oil Orally or with Food?

If you administer CBD Oil to your dog orally and without treats, snacks, or food, then your dog’s body will break it down easier than compared to taking it together with food. It’s common for CBD Oil to be broken down quicker alone before food, than after. The only consequence of oral ingestion VS food ingestion is that the release of the compounds is slower VS faster.

The biggest problem you’ll run into is that most pets will not enjoy the bitter taste of CBD Oil, therefore resulting in giving it to your pet with food.
