COCONUT OIL…THE WONDER CURE FOR DOGS, AND US!
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is one of the very best supplements you can give your pet (dog, cat, rabbit or any other creature, including yourself), and just about everyone loves its subtle flavor.
Coconut Oil is comprised of medium-chain triglycerides which are easily digested and convert to energy, rather than fat. It is ideal for dogs with gastrointestinal problems and sensitive stomachs because it does not require pancreatic secretion of enzymes for digestion or assimilation. Coconut oil is one of the richest sources of lauric acid which balances the immune system.
As if that were not enough, Coconut Oil is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Allergies? Yeasty dog? Dry, flaky skin and coat problems? Coconut oil!
Topically, its healing properties promote wound healing, and are effective on cuts, abrasions, hot spots, rough elbow pads, dry noses, etc.
When incorporating Extra Virgin Coconut Oil into your pet’s diet, it is important to start slowly. It is recommended to begin with 1/4 teaspoon daily for cats and smaller, and one teaspoon a day for large breeds, Increase the dosage gradually until you reach a maximum of 1 teaspoon per 10 lbs. of body weight. In summer months, you will mostly find coconut oil to be a clear liquid; below 76 degrees, it solidifies into a white lard-like substance. It can be added to your pet’s food in either form.

I am achieving amazing results with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – overweight dogs losing weight thanks to increased energy; dull coats becoming sleek and shiny; two dogs are even growing new outer coats. In short – a pack of happy dogs brimming with good health.
