I’ve comprised a list of some of the amazing ways to use coconut oil for your pets.

  1. Makes coats soft and glossy and deodorizes at the same time
  2. Great for skin conditions such as itchy skin and dermatitis
  3. Heals wounds and disinfects cuts
  4. Improves digestion
  5. Helps alleviate allergies
  6. Antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial to fight off diseases
  7. Reduces bad breath
  8. Balances insulin levels
  9. Helps boost metabolism
  10. Help control diabetes
  11. Natural repellant for fleas and ticks

 

That’s great but how do I give it to my pet?

 

I recommend putting the oil in their food as it will be difficult to get them to swallow it otherwise.

 

Dogs:

For small dogs ½ teaspoon and work your way up to a full tablespoon in a couple of weeks

For medium to large dogs you should start with a teaspoon and work up to 1.5 – 2 tablespoons within 2 weeks

 

Cats:

For Kittens: ¼ teaspoon working your way up to 1 teaspoon over 1 – 2 weeks

For full-size cats: ½ teaspoon to start working up to 2 teaspoons over 1 – 2 weeks.

 

Mix in food and serve once daily.
