Notes

What type of coconut oil is best for my dog?

Choose virgin coconut oil, which is unrefined coconut oil. Search for cold-pressed coconut oil, which is made using a method that preserves the nutrients by processing the oil shortly after the coconuts are collected. 

How to know how much coconut oil to feed to your pet.

Many veterinarians recommend starting slow when feeding coconut oil. A good starting dose is ¼ teaspoon daily for small dogs and from 1 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon daily for big dogs.

If you have an obese or overweight dog, vets suggest that coconut oil be provided no more than once a day because of its high fat content.
