THE BENEFITS OF COCONUT OIL

Coconut oil improves overall skin health, and clears up skin conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, contact dermatitis, and itchy skin. (Home made coat supplement) - and detangling spray.

Incredibly emollient, coconut oil helps moisturize the dryest dogs skin and makes a dog's coat gleam with health - whether you add it to your dogs food, shampoo or both.

The antibacterial andantifungal properties of coconut oil help reduce doggy odor, and its pleasantly tropical aroma imparts a delightful scent to a dog's skin and coat.

Coconut oil prevents and treats yeast infections, including candida. Its antiviral agents also help dogs recover quickly from kennel cough.

Digestion and nutrient absorption are improved by the addition of coconut oil to a dog's diet.

Coconut oil reduces - and sometimes eliminates - doggy breath. Some dog owners even brush their pets' teeth with the coconut oil, and as dogs love the taste of coconut oil, it makes the chore less arduous.

Like cinnamon, coconut oil helps prevent diabetes by regulating and balancing insulin. It also promotes normal thyroid function, and helps prevent infection and heart disease.

Helping to reduce weight and increase energy, coconut oil also promotes mobility in dogs with arthritis and other joint issues.

Again like cinnamon, coconut oil is excellent for brain health; it's being used to stave off dementia in humans, and it's a must to keep senior dogs' minds active

Integrative Veterinarian and Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Karen Becker, says “Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have been shown to improve brain energy metabolism and decrease the amyloid protein buildup that results in brain lesions in older dogs. Coconut oil is a rich source of MCTs. I recommend 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of body weight twice daily for basic MCT support.”
