    I haven't found anything that Brie doesn't like yet! Lol I'm thinking you can put the coconut oil on as much as you want or is needed. It rly makes their coat soft n shiny and of course it smells god too. It's just hard for her to not lick it off her nose or pads immediately so I rub it in pretty well if I can.

    We also use coconut oil for all of our dogs. To ensure the most good and nutrients, make sure to get Organic and Virgin (or extra virgin). Also, if it's in a plastic container be sure that it is a BPA free container. We purchase ours from Vitacost and it's the most pure we have found at a decent price. If you purchase from a local store, it is either not virgin or organic or it's not in a BPA free container. If it's a health food store, it's very expensive. We put about a tablespoon in for our Mastiffs and about a teaspoon in for everyone else. The babies get just a little bit split between them. We also add it to them on their skin/coat and it makes them so soft, smooth and it smells really nice, too!

    When I look up coconut oil online it looks like it comes in a jar which makes me think that it is like a paste. Is that so? I was expecting an oil like salmon oil.

    Thank you! Does that mean I should heat it up to make it liquid?

    I am feeding the bland diet right now, beef and white rice, and adding probiotics and salmon oil. Because of allergies. Can I substitute coconut oil for salmon oil? Or should I be giving both?
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    Really its which ever your baby tolerates the best Sheldon does well with both but I really like the coconut oil because he has less stinky gas and he LOVES his new food and he loves it even more with the coconut oil on it every morning!

    I was just going to ask that Todd. I recently got some from Amazon and it was solid. I was wondering if it was bad or something.
