Health Benefits of Coconut Oil for Dogs

Coconut Oil has many beneficial uses -- from cooking oil to whipped body lotion

We give our dog Rossi coconut oil regularly. Sometimes a small chunk of it as a treat, or when the coconut oil becomes liquid we will drizzle it over her dog food.

She loves it! Coconut oil helps prevent and reduce itchiness and is good for her overall health too.

Like humans, coconut oil has a variety of benefits for dogs too:
  • Reduces pet allergies and clears up skin conditions 
  • Improves digestion and reduces "doggie breath"
  • Aids in arthritis or ligament problems

Holistic veterinarian Dr. Karen Becker says “I recommend 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil for every 10 pounds of body weight twice daily.”

Pets deserve a healthy lifestyle too!
