Coconut Oil – Health Benefits For You & Your Pet

By Diane Burket


I have personally used Coconut Oil for years.  I cook with it and use it as a body moisturizer. Populations that consume a lot of Coconut Oil are some of the healthiest people in the world.  It helps to increase energy expenditure and burn more fat. Coconut Oil can reduce hunger, improve blood cholesterol levels and topically—is a great moisturizer and sunscreen.  


Here’s a great video by Dr. Karen Becker about the benefits of Coconut Oil for pets.  


INTERNAL BENEFITS OF COCONUT OIL
  • Rich source of energy
  • Antibacterial
  • Antifungal
  • Easy to digest – very absorbable
  • Allergies
  • Skin & Coat Problems

EXTERNAL (TOPICAL) BENEFITS & USES OF COCONUT OIL
  • Cuts
  • Abrasions
  • Dry cracked noses
  • Sores
  • Elbow pads that are thickening
  • Great moisturizer for pads of feet – especially in winter

Have trouble giving your dog a pill?  Try hiding the pill inside Coconut Oil. Dogs will usually eat it right from the spoon.

Pet Maintenance dose:  1 teaspoon daily for every 10 – 20 pounds
