Coconut Oil For Dogs

This is Charley Tina's reaction when I ask her if she wants some coconut oil.
This is Charley Tina’s reaction when I ask her if she wants some coconut oil.

My dog loves coconut oil! The best part is, it’s good for her.  Earlier this year I started reading up on coconut oil and it’s benefits. I have used it in lotions, sugar scrubs and baths.  Lately I have also been using it for cooking (blog posts will be updated with this switch for sure!).  This summer I started feeding it to Charley, my dog.  She gets about 1 tablespoon 3 times a week. (I started with 1/2 tablespoon and kept making the portion bigger)  It’s a big treat for her.  I smash it into her food and she digs into her bowl.


Her eyes have been less watery and she has been scratching a lot less. I think her coat feels softer too.

She doesn’t seem to be sneezing as much either.  I asked her vet about feeding it to her and she told me that it’s a great idea and that it helps both inside and out.  If you want to know more about coconut oil benefits for dogs, check out these sites:  and  Only feed them unrefined virgin coconut oil.  This is free of chemicals and has the most nutrient value.
