Now for my favorite addition to the diet… coconut oil. I truly believe this is the most perfect oil in existence. You can use it for everything. For the purposes of this post, we will focus on the benefits for your dog. Coconut oil has about 90% Medium Chain Triglycerides which is the main benefit source. These “MCT’s” do a lot for your dog. They will clear up skin problems and skin allergies. It will even moisturize your dog’s skin from the inside out. This oil will improve general skin health. It will make your dog’s coat shiny and will even remedy doggy body odor… how awesome is that? Coconut Oil will treat yeast and fungal infections. Coconut improves digestion and reduces or eliminates bad breath. It will help control diabetes. Coconut Oil will increase your dog’s energy. It also aids in arthritis and ligament problems. How much should you give your dog? Give about one quarter teaspoon of coconut oil for each ten pounds of your dog’s bodyweight.
