FAQ

What is Coconut Oil?

Coconut oil is the oil extracted from the good part, or the meat, of the coconut. Coconut oil is extremely high in saturated fat, and so for most diets, excessive consumption is not recommended. However, coconut oil is edible, and it is frequently used on an ingredient level in many human grade food items. Aside from food, coconut oil has become very popular for personal health and grooming. It’s moisturizing properties are highly effective at helping sufferers of dry skin, and is often used as a natural conditioner for hair. Most importantly, coconut oil is extremely common as the base ingredient in soap. Part of what makes it an important base ingredient to many of the high end soap manufacturers is that it is more soluble in hard water and salt water which allows it to lather more easily.

Is Using Coconut Oil for Dogs a Good Idea?

In short, YES. Coconut oil is a very safe product for dogs, and many dog owners, groomers, and veterinarians swear but the positive benefits of this essential item. Besides aiding your furry friends digestion and improving their coats, coconut oil has the power to actively prevent infections in dogs. With vet costs becoming more and more expensive every year, it is important to get your dog on a good grooming and supplement routine to prevent infection and avoid costly visits to the vet. While using coconut oil for dogs is definitely a good idea with many benefits, it is important to use it correctly, as with most stuff, too much of a good thing can get you or your pup into trouble.

Why is Coconut Oil Healthy For Your Dog?

The most important thing to know about coconut oil is that most of the health benefits come from something we don’t usually consider healthy: fat. Since coconut oil is made up of more than 90% saturated fat, it is hard to believe that it is actually considered a superfood. Most beginner coconut oil fiends are usually skeptical of it for this reason.

How Could Something With So Much Fat Be Good For My Dog?

Well the truth is, that there are good fats and bad fats. They are categorized by two broad groups: saturated and unsaturated. Within each group, there are even more types of fats that vary in quality and healthiness. Saturated fats are often considered the bad type of fat, and for the most part, they are. However, coconut oil has a very powerful secret weapon: medium chain triglycerides, or MCT’s. MCT’s are a good type of fat that is made up of Lauric Acid, Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Myristic Acid and Palmitic. Some of the health benefits associated with the MCT’s found in coconut oil are:

• Digestion Improvement • Immune System Support • Increased Metabolic Functions • Improved Skin and Coat Health • Antifungal, Antibacterial and Antiviral Properties

Just taking a moment to reflect on the list of benefits above, you can see why coconut oil is so popular with veterinarians. In particular, most natural products do not have antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. When treating or preventing infections on our dog’s skin, stomach, or inside your dog's ears, we frequently turn to chemical based cleansers for these health benefits, but using coconut oil based products is a safe, natural alternative that has similar benefits.

    I have not used this product previously, but the lady who let me adopt her rescue told me that the shiny coat my new dog has was because she used coconut oil.

    Just as discussed

    Just as discussed. Daisy May love's it. I put it on her noise when it's dry and her paws as well to prevent cracking. She will spend hours licking it off her paws.

    My Pup LOve

    By on

    My pup loves this! I mix with his food and sometimes give it to him as a treat. It does keep his coat soft and I noticed he is able to digest things better as well.

    Just not a fan

    By on

    My lab mix is usually a big fan of coconut oil (and anything that looks, tastes and smells edible, lol) but after giving her the normal dose of this coconut oil in her food, she was slower to finish her meals which, for her, is just NOT a thing. She is extremely food motivated and not at all a picky eater, but this nearly stopped her dead in her tracks. We tried melting it and pouring it over her food and she left some crumbs and remnants behind (She always licks her bowl clean, even when there isn't anything there.) Not sure what it is about this coconut oil that she doesn't like, but I am bummed that a good sized jar at a reasonable price just isn't for her. :(

    Dissatisfied

    By on

    I purchased this product because chewy was out of stock on the coconut oil I purchased prior and I thought that All virgin organic coconut oil was the same what could be different except for the manufactors name? Well everything Was different, it did not smell like coconut At all, did Not melt during hot high Temps and the most important factor here is that not one of my four dogs liked it and my fur babies LOVE LOVE LOVE Every and Anything Coconut.
