FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

  • Awesome for dry skin!

    By on

    Our 8 month Goldendoodle was continuously having dry skin that would drive her crazy since we got her at 8 weeks. She also continuously was getting puppy pyoderma, which would return after being on ATBX. We have been giving her coconut oil in her food for a couple of months now and since starting the results have been great! She now very rarely gets any skin irritation, and I give her less than the recommended amount. The only downside is even though I give less than the recommended amount it seems as though we go through it quickly, which does add up.

  • Great product!

    By on

    My dog loves this stuff!! I put it in her food and directly on any irritated skin she has. It really helped heal up the scabs she dug into herself due to allergies too (after I gave her allergy medicine and got her to stop itching).

  • Coconut oil for dogs

    By on

    It doesn't work for my Yorkshire terrier. If I put it on his food he refused to eat the food. When I put it on his treats, he refused to eat the treats. Yet all the comments I read was that dogs love coconut oil. I will not be buying this product again.

  • Coconut great for dogs

    By on

    My dogs love coconut oil. They get the recommended amount with their evening meal. It makes their coat and fur/hair shine and healthy. I love that it comes in a plastic jar, not a glass jar and easy to use.
