Coconut Oil For Our Animal Companions
We get amazing feedback from pet owners who report remarkable results using coconut oil in the food and on the coats of their best friends, particularly dogs, cats and horses.
Test results on coconut oil’s effect on dogs in clinical trials are not readily available, but anecdotal evidence is impressive. Because coconut oil digests more easily than other oils and is converted into energy rather than body fat, the metabolism is stimulated. Overweight pets can become leaner and more energetic soon after they begin to eat coconut oil.
Bad breath is minimised. Dull coats take on a new shine. Animals with arthritis or ligament problems grow stronger and livelier. Dogs with flea allergies, contact dermatitis or other allergic reactions typically stop scratching soon after coconut oil is added to their food. Wounds, bites, stings, ear mites, ear infections and cuts all recover faster with the application of coconut oil, thanks to its unique antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It’s also an excellent insect repellent, provides cardio-vascular support and improves the functioning of the immune barrier at skin level. Professional horse trainers often add coconut oil to their horse feed as a non-heating energy source, to increase endurance and performance.
Coconut oil is good for the overall health and well-being of our pets of all ages. It is well tolerated causing animals no harm, unlike many drugs and other treatments. Coconut oil is stable and resistant to rancidity so can be stored for long periods of time.
