What is CBD?
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a special cannabinoid isolated from Hemp flowers.
It is a safe, natural component of Cannabis.
Is CBD oil the same as Cannabis oil?
No. Although CBD can be a component of Cannabis oils, these oils are made up of other Cannabinoids too, like THC. THC is what causes the “high” in humans and dogs. Large quantities of THC are in fact toxic for dogs, although even smaller quantities can cause trouble by giving your dog anxiety and feelings of great discomfort. Many people consider making a dog “high” as a rather cruel thing to do. We recommend only using CBD oil for dogs. TIVA CBD is THC-free and made especially to be pet-friendly.
Is CBD safe?
Yes, CBD is very safe at the recommended doses and can be given to most dogs.
Check with your vet if you’re unsure about your particular pet.
What does CBD treat?
CBD is becoming ever-more appreciated as a valuable natural supplement for dogs, with research constantly expanding on the various benefits it provides.
CBD influences the Endo-Cannabinoid System, which is part of your dog’s nervous system. This is why CBD is such a good supplement for so many dogs.
CBD is good for your dog’s every day well being.
It is useful for treating the symptoms of old age and can help calm nervous dogs.
It can be useful for weak dogs or dogs that have general health qualms, or just helping to ensure your puppy’s continued general health.
At Tiva, we recommend speaking to your veterinarian or animal health care provider should you wish to use CBD therapy for your pooch to treat a medical condition. Tiva is not meant to treat, diagnose or cure any disease or disorder. All instructions provided are guidelines only and are intended solely for the safe consumption of the product.
How much TIVA CBD do I give my dog?
CBD is always personalised supplementation, meaning that you have to determine which dose works well for your dog. As a general well-being supplement, it is recommended to give dogs between 2.5mg to 5mg of CBD per 10kg bodyweight.
For a lower dose:
2.5mg x Your dogs weight (in kg)/10 = Your dog’s CBD dose
For a higher dose:
5mg x Your dogs weight (in kg)/10 = Your dog’s CBD dose
We’ve made a chart to help you match the best TIVA product for your pet.
Look on your bottle too, as we’ve included a handy measuring strip on each bottle of TIVA to help you get it right!
How long will TIVA take to start working?
Due to the phospholipid content, TIVA gets to work rather quickly, between 5 and 20 minutes.
If you feel that it’s not having the effect you desire, wait 30 minutes before adjusting dose.
When and How do I give TIVA to my dog?
You can give TIVA to your dog up to 3 times per day, preferably at meal times.
You can also give your dog TIVA when you feel she/he needs it (e.g. as you hear a storm approaching). TIVA can be mixed in with food, or sprinkled on treats, or simply put in your pup’s food bowl for them to lick up. The deliciousness of TIVA will mean your dog won’t be too fussy about how they get it, only that they get it!
