Anyone that has a cat knows just how difficult it can be to give them medication. They have their own personality and don’t take very kindly to be forced to do anything, let alone allow you to put something in their mouth. Fortunately, there are a number of means that you can use to add CBD to their regimen without having to try and force a capsule down their throat, which absolutely is not advised.
One of the easiest ways is to use treats that have been specially created for cats. These treats smell delicious to a cat, but have been supplemented with just the right amount of CBD to be sure that they get the proper dose. When purchasing these kinds of treats you want to be sure that they are of a high quality. Not all brands are the same and some will make claims that simply are not true due to the fact that they are not regulated. With a little research you can find the best brands to choose from so you can have the confidence in knowing your cat is getting the right dose every time.
If you aren’t comfortable with giving your cat treats out of concern of what they may contain, or you have an extremely picky cat, which isn’t too rare, you can also give them the oil directly. If your cat will allow you to, you can give them their dosage directly into their mouth. You will want to watch and see whether or not they are then spitting it out or accept it. If they are spitting it out then they likely aren’t going to be getting the amount that they need and it will be going to waste.
You can also try to put it into their food. CBD oil, when mixed with wet food, typically won’t lead to a cat refusing to eat the wet food. This is especially true if it is a treat for them. Just be sure to put it on the top so that as little is going to waste as possible.
CBD is great for a number of conditions that your cat may suffer from. The problem most people have is finding a way to add it to their diet. By using the tips above you should be able to find the one that works for even the most independent minded cat around.
