Frequently Asked Questions
Oils enter the blood stream – quicker and should be placed on a few bites of food or directly into the month using a plastic dropper. Oils contain the most amount of pet CBD ratio per serving and produce the quickest results. Treats are convenient and can be given without a meal. Treats are higher in calories and have slower results than oil. In addition to oils and treats, there are transdermal creams which are administered directly inside of the pets ear This can be the ideal method of delivery if your pet is nauseous or refuses to eat. Balms are placed directly on unbroken skin that is irritated, dry or needs healing such as healed sutures. If you are uncertain, start with an unflavored oil that can be placed on a small piece of bread.
- Administer directly into the mouth with the provided plastic dropper, or directly in the food bowl or place the amount on top a very small amount of food. When you administer CBD Oil directly on a full bowl of food, it will absorb into the food and may remain trapped inside the food as it proceeds through the pet’s digestive system. This is why you may not see any results from CBD.
- Administration times and timing. If you want 18-hour coverage for your pet, we recommend splitting the recommended usage amount between the morning and evening. Each half of the recommended usage amount is equal to 9 hours of coverage. CBD without food may only take 20 minutes to take effect. If you need the effect to take place prior to an event, such as an appointment with the groomer, plan the dose accordingly.
- Increase the dosage amount or strength. Animals have individualized endocannabinoid systems and might need more or less, than what is on the customized dosing schedule. If you feel you are using the products at a quick rate, use a higher strength. It’s also important to note that there has been no know overdoses of animals ingesting CBD made for pets.
- Change to a different brand and use a broad-spectrum CBD. Hemp is grown in a variety of different geographies and in a variety of climates. Much like the Oranges grown in Florida have a higher sugar content due to the wetter climate than those grown in California. There is a study that is published in the US National Library of Medicine a division of the National Institutes of Health that analyzes the DNA of 645 specimens of Cannabis from China, France, Hungary, Africa, and the Netherlands. The results confirm that there is significant DNA variation amount in the specimens that are grown in one country vrs. another country. Differences in DNA may equal differences in CBD potential. In addition, broad-spectrum CBD has more terpenes, plant compounds, and flavonoids than full-spectrum CBD which may affect the potential of the CBD once it enters the blood stream.
- The dosing amount is determined by the pets weight, activity level and mental state (if used for behavior control). Pet CBD products that are manufactured at a reputable company include dosing guidelines on the packaging of the product. Use the weight of your pet as a starting point. Is your pet active? If yes, use the larger dosing amount. Is your pet sedentary? If yes, use the smaller dosing amount. If you are using CBD for a specific behavior such as anxiety or aggression, you may need to increase the amount according to the specific situation. The dosage amount need to calm a pet during fireworks will be greater than getting the pet to relax after surgery. If you are using CBD for mobility associated with joint pain, you may want to increase or decrease the amount according to the activity level of your pet. There has been no known overdoses of CBD in animals.
If you buy a product at WildLifeRx, the dosing amount will be calculated by the weight of the pet, the strength of pet CBD, and whether the pet CBD is for general health or a specific concern. Pets that are stressed or aggressive often need a higher strength than those that do not. Each WildLifeRx purchase comes with a customized dosing schedule specific to your pet. Please make sure you fill out the Pet Health Form at the end of your purchase.
No. Pet CBD is well tolerated on healthy pets and those with certain medical conditons. Pet CBD should not be used as first-line therapy. Although pet CBD can be taken safely with many medications, pets who are taking medication(s) for the following diseases or are currently being treated for cardiopulmonary disease, hypotension, hypertension, tachycardia, respiratory disease, renal disease, hemophilia, are taking sedatives or are pregnant or nursing, should not take pet CBD. Pet CBD should not be taken 36 hours prior- and post-surgery. If you have any concerns, please contact WildLifeRx. A licensed veterinary technician will review the medications your pet is taking and help you determine if CBD is the right choice for your pet.
If the desired effect is behavior-related, then you will be looking for a change in the pets behavior or mobility. Some conditions require diagnostics as in the case of joint inflammation. Discuss the options with your Veterinarian. If you don’t see a significant difference, increase the dosage or strength and monitor their behavior and mobility. Most conditions require behavior modification or multi-supplement approach.
It depends on the strength of pet CBD, the weight of your pet, and if your pet uses it every day or only in specific situations. Most pets use 1 bottle every 30-45 days.

First isolated in 1964, cannabigerol (CBGA) remained unobtainable because the technology was not developed to be able to effectively extract it. CBG, its updated name, is an immature cannabinoid that is thought to be present on all cannabinoids and transforms into other cannabinoids as the plant matures. It is known as the ‘stem cell’ of cannabinoids and works by interrelating with the ECS – endocannabinoid system. CB1 and CB2 receptors control neuro-hormones which can affect mood, appetite, and pain response and is affected by CBG. CBG increases energy and it is recommended to not dose it prior to sleep. It appears to have anti-inflammatory effects and recent studies have shown that people who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease are improved when using CBG as a treatment. Along with the other beneficial effects, it has increased cell growth in bones and within the laboratory setting, is may have antimicrobial effects as it has eliminated MRSA (staph infection) with greater effectiveness than potent antibiotics.
