Gizzl dog treats are made with fresh human-grade mackerel. Mackerel contains very low levels of mercury as it’s fished out of deeper waters than other fish, making it more likely to come from an unpolluted environment.

Other ingredients are coconut flour, ground flaxseed, grapeseed oil (which is high in whole fatty acids and minerals for added healing), butternut, fresh herbs, turmeric, omega-3 fish oil and preserved with rosemary extract.

How many CBD treats should I give my pet?

CBD is still pretty new to everybody, especially our furry friends. We’re all learning how to get the most out of it and just how much to give.

For both cats and dogs, a good rule of thumb is to start with 1.5mg -3mg for every 5kg of weight. 

Medium/Large Dogs: 5mg CBD per treat (3–4 treats per day)

We always recommend starting off on the low side of a dosage range and adjusting upward slowly over time until the desired effect is reached. This cautious approach works well, as every dog and cat is different. They come in all shapes and sizes (and that is what we love about them!)

But it does mean that when it comes to CBD, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. It might take some experimenting to find the right amount to give your own fuzzballs. That’s ok – CBD is safe and natural, so no worries if your pet gets a little more or less than needed while you figure things out.

CBD takes 30-45 minutes to start working.

As a rule, CBD oil tends to kick in a little faster than treats, just because there are fewer ingredients for furry bellies to break down first. But there’s no difference in effectiveness between the two.

Each dose – whether from oil or biscuits – lasts from 4-8 hours. That’s a big spread, we know, but the duration can vary a lot depending on your pet’s size, activity level, breed and the severity of their symptoms. But as a good rule of thumb: older pets tend to take longer than younger ones to digest food and cats tend to metabolise CBD much faster than dogs.

We encourage you to give CBD the time that it needs, so that you can fully realise it’s amazing benefits for your pet. Every day consistency is key. It can take up to four to six weeks to build up in the system. Our pets are all unique and some experience rapid and very noticeable benefits, while others experience benefits over time and daily use, which is common for a natural supplement.

Any medication or supplement carries the risk of a reaction. It is always advisable, when giving your pet something new, to start out with small amounts and then closely monitor the effects. And always check with your vet first.  You assume full responsibility for how you choose to use this information.
