    Default Question about Coconut oil

    OK I had posted a question about dry skin and someone mentioned Coconut oil...So can I stick it on his dog food? If so how much? he is a year old and is 50.5 pounds, Or should I just rub some on his coat???

    I am a first time bull dog owner so i've never had to do this before.

    Yes, you can put some directly into his food and you can also rub some on his coat. Sometimes I will cook their vegetables in a teaspoon of coconut oil. They really love the taste!

    oh yes, start with just a little bit, built up to a teaspoonful a day or every couple days, too much will be a 'problem' - on your floor!!

    I use coconut oil on a Brie's nose and pads weekly or more if they are dry. I use it on her coat weekly as well. I don't put it in her food anymore as we use salmon oil in food. the vet said I need to be careful about her losing her curves...she loves it tho!

    @Lisabear123 Chesty loves the coconut oil on his food. The salmon oil he won't do he doesn't like the fish taste of anything! And thanks for your help with how many times a week I should rub the coconut oil on his coat,nose and pads!!

    We rub it on Harlea's belly when she gets a rash from the grass and we put it on her gums when she pulled a tooth out a few weeks ago and it helped it heal nicely. Also, for less mess we made a little plate of coconut oil droplets and put them in teh fridge and we just give her one of those a day as it is a solid below 76 degrees and a liquid above it.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    @GunnyHighway nice question! I got Spectrum Organic Coconut oil, i'm not sure if that's a good brand or not. But i would think just about any kind would be good. Hopefully some will respond to your question because i don't know the answer. lol
