Same for my rabbit. I put some mixed in yogurt on a teaspoon. I would let him keep licking it, and as soon as he stopped for a second, I took it away. It ended up being like 1/4 of the spoon. I always stuck to the green or really reds for him. I can tell it helped because he always came running for it

Any idea on dosage for a 10 lb dog?


figure out the proportion based on an adult weight (maybe 140lbs?)...

10/140lbs X starting dose (2000 mg)

This works out to 150 mg approximately.

You will need a scale that measures in mg to get this right. .. but that is the place to START.

you will know if it is working by how the dog reacts. Is he/she moving better, more playful, less withdrawn etc?

I have NO idea if Kratom is safe for dogs...but this is how to do the dosage. Others have posted here that they do give it to their dogs so I guess it is safe.

Those of us who use a scale know that a teaspoon is over 2000mg (2gms). Therefore 1/4 tsp is over 500mg...I think that is too much to start. It would be like an adult starting on 6GMs which is WAY too much to start.

Hi
Willie1980 from sc
Look kratom is good for dogs,and humans point blank this is probably why bans are/were being discussed.after 5 years on mmt. I found kratom to be a safe alternative.Giving me back the concentration pain releif and functionality opiate withdrawal had stripped me of.
This morning on Memorial day weekend I was taking my dogs to the river.sad to say the smallest jumped out the window in the confusion I ran over her.I went to the store got her a sprite and gave her some maeng da. Happy to say she is not in pain eating and her normal self.with some scrapes and a limp.

I have used kratom for pain and even after 15 years of every day oxy,methadone,then onto suboxone it really works on pain and depression issues from opiate side effects.
I had to get my dosage down from opiates and once on kratom I went longer without opiates than I have for 15 years.
Strains that really work for me is Green MD,Green Malay,Yellow Sulawesi,wild red Bali,and some whites.
I will add that Yellow Sulawesi has been the most powerful kratom I’ve tried to date.
If it’s good quality kratom it will work.
Find a vendor with a 30day return because you will get some crappy kratom or at least I did and sent it back for a different strain.

My mother in-laws dog has been having what is thought to be sciatica issues ... been to the vet, told to keep him from running to let him heal .... without aggravating his condition..... I’m gonna to give him a small dose of kratom tomorrow and see if it helps with him limp and his slight depression I believe he’s having from his injury ... I’ll report back about any noticeable improvements or lack of ... i know how miraculous it’s been for me... sure kratoms benefits can transcribe over to our dog !!!! Thx everyone..

Much love

The dose would be crucial to get right.

You will need the animals weight and then calculate the dosage accordingly from what we start with for a human.

I want this to be successful for you so keeping it light and not making the dog puke would be essential!

WOW, big dog! the weight is aproximately just a small amount less than 1/2 of an adult human male.

So 1/4 tsp sounds about right as a starting point to see if the dog can tolerate it, but more might be needed to get pain relief as we usually suggest 2 Gms to start. So I am thinking you will need to work up to 1/2 tsp.

Good luck...I alway love to see animal studies because there is no placebo effect!
