Coconut Oil For Dogs

Updated: Sep 8, 2022

I wanted to share with you why Coconut Oil is so good for you pup.

As you may already know, coconut is very healthy for you. But did you know it is also very healthy for your dog?

Although, these are not scientifically proven, it is believed that coconut oil:

  • can clear up skin conditions and help with itchy skin

  • help keep coat shinny and healthy

  • help reduce skin allergic reactions and improves skin health

  • disinfect minor cuts when topically applied

  • helps heal hot spots, cuts, bites and stings,

  • helps and promotes wound healing when topically applied

  • helps reduce doggy breath

  • helps treat and prevent yeast and fungal infections

  • helps with dry dog paws when topically applied

Coconut has a lot of antioxidants which helps to keep their immune system strong and healthy.

As I mentioned above, coconut oil also helps their fur and skin look healthy and shiny.

I usually apply a little bit of coconut oil on my pup’s fur and paws after shower. If your dog has dry paws, coconut oil can help moisturize it and keep it healthy looking and soft.

Coconut oil also improves digestion and high energy levels in dogs. Mixing some Organic Coconut Oil in their food is very good for them.

But don’t give him too much because it can also cause loose stool. Just one or two tea spoons depending on their size.

If you ever make homemade treats for your dog, I recommend baking it with coconut oil instead of regular oil. Much healthier for them.

I always use it when I make my dog treats.

Also as I mentioned, if your dog ever has a minor injury or cut, coconut oil can help disinfect it and it also helps to speed up healing. Just massage a little bit of it around the injured area.

However, if your dog has stitches I wouldn’t recommend it, because he will most likely start licking it, and you don’t want to risk him opening the wound.

Basically if you want your pup healthy I highly recommend giving him some raw coconut or coconut oil.

But if you have any concerns or your pup has a history of allergic reactions make sure to consult your Veterinarian first.
