Coconut oil is everywhere right now, whether you’re using it in cooking or for hair and skincare you’re bound to have heard of the benefits, but did you know that giving small amounts of coconut oil to your pooch everyday can boost their well-being? Here’s why we’re getting on board with this latest doggie tread!
Just like us, dogs need to have well moisturised skin and coconut oil is guaranteed to do just that. It’ll make your dog’s coat smooth and glossy, a sure sign that they are a healthy and happy pup. You can even apply coconut oil straight to dry cracked pads and elbow calluses to help soothe poorly skin.
Coconut oil promises to not only improve digestion but also helps increase the amount of nutrients that your dog can absorb into their bodies.
As much as we love our pups, there’s no getting away from doggie breath! Introducing coconut oil into your dog’s diet can help with smelly breath by naturalising bad odour.
Remember, always consult your vet if your dog has any special health requirements. Although we love the benefits of coconut oil, it’s always best ask your vet if it’s right for your pooch! Like anything, your dog’s body will need time to adjust to this new yummy treat so start by giving your pup just a quarter of a teaspoon a day slowly increasing this to 1 whole teaspoon over a month.
There are many ways that we can support our dogs health, but what about their healthy development and training? The Gencon All-In-One is an effective training tool that will stop your dog pulling, making training a stress-free experience for both you and your dog.
