Numerous benefits of coconut oil for pets have been reported and the growing evidence is impressive. According to Dr. Bruce Fife, certified nutritionist and naturopathic doctor, coconut oil gently elevates the metabolism, provides a higher level of energy and vitality, protects you from illness, and speeds healing. In dogs, the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil balance the thyroid, helping overweight dogs lose weight and helping sedentary dogs feel energetic. As a bonus, coconut oil improves any dog's skin and coat, improves digestion, and reduces allergic reactions.*
Fed regularly to pets, coconut oil may have multiple benefits:
Clears up skin conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, contact dermatitis,
and itchy skin
Reduces allergic reactions and improves skin health
Makes coats become sleek and glossy, and deodorizes doggy odor
Prevents and treats yeast and fungal infections, including candida
Disinfects cuts and promotes wound healing
Applied topically, promotes the healing of cuts, wounds, hot spots, dry skin and
hair, bites and stings
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have been shown to improve brain energy metabolism and decrease the amyloid protein buildup that results in brain lesions in older dogs. Coconut oil is a rich source of MCTs. I recommend 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of body weight twice daily for basic MCT support."

Recommended dosage: 1 teaspoon (5ml) per 10 pounds (5kg) of body weight, or 1 tablespoon (15ml) per 30 pounds (13.6 kg) of body weight. Start slowly, for example, start at a quarter of this and build up slowly. Use similarly for cats and other animals.
Our favorite method of dispensing: Simply place a tsp or so in the cupped palm of your hand and let the warmth of your hand melt the oil. Then let your pet lick the oil directly from your hand! Our pooches and kitties love it, and what a wonderful way to bond! Then rub any remaining oil on your own skin, and begin enjoying the benefits of soft, silky, skin! As with all new supplements, start with small amounts, such as 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon per day for small dogs, puppies, cats and kittens and 1 teaspoon for large dogs. Gradually increase the amount every few days.

My 8 dogs weren't sure when I first gave them a taste of CocoaTherapy Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.. They ended up loving it. I also used it as a rub on one 2 of my dogs that had hot spots. Within a few days the red rawness had started healing. I also used it to cook their eggs in as a treat. I would recommend this product for the overall health and well being of your pet.
My dog has skin issues and dry eye and doesnt walk well. he is 10 now and the oil made him 2 years younger in 8 days. his dry eyes have been a terrible problem that meds didnt take care of anymore and now he is so much better.
As good as everyone said it was
I have a 13. 5 year old german shepherd/akita/great dane rescue pup with chronic skin conditions. After a week on the Coco Therapy, his hair started filling in in patches that were becoming bare and he sheds less. He and his mama love it!!
