    Default Coconut oil in food

    Hello everyone I read here . somewhere ,that coconut oil helps with skin issues and was over all a great supplement to give ebd's. When I first looked on line it looked expensive and then the other day at the Publix where I shop. in the organic section. I saw a jar of it so I picked it up and am wondering how much does everyone give their dogs? I put about a tablespoon on a few banana slices yesterday and I had to put the jar in the microwave to soften in up a bit. Thanks Hero

    It's a great thing to take, animals or humans! It supports immune system function,
    regulates metabolism (lose weight, effortlessly), great for hair & skin health and so
    many great things...google it! Yes, you want to use the organic, cold pressed and take
    about a TSP to a TBSP daily. It's great to cook with (use unflavored)or add to milk,juice
    or smoothies (use coconut flavor)...just a wonderful & healthy oil, food, supplement.

    I alternate using this with the salmon oil for Brutus, has healed skin sores and thickened
    his coat and soft & shiny in 3 months time.

    RIP beloved boy.

    Hi there, I have tried this with my Linus for a bit to help with his skin problems but I didn't see any results. I read online to give that you should give one teaspoon per 10 lbs of body weight so I started there and was faithful for a few weeks but I didn't see any improvement with his skin, I lost steam, and now it's sitting in my cupboard. I should try it again for more time...I just got lazy. But let me know how it works for your baby! I have heard the health benefits (seen and unseen) can be dramatic!

    I have tried it with Lola and I love it! She eats her food really fast when I put it on there so she must love the taste. I started with one tsp a day for 4 days then I went up to 2 tsp a day and that is what I have kept her on, Im sure you could give more than that but those dose seems to work for us!

    Thanks everyone. In the grocery store it wasn't as expensive as on line. I think I paid $9.00 for a jar of it. Like the size of a jar of peanut butter in the organic section I do have to microwave it without the metal lid on to liquify it but I am going to put it on his sliced bananas with peanut butter every morning and see if it helps at all . Thanks Hero

    We mixed it into HRH's food for a while. Switched to fish oil pills instead as we think she may have been slightly allergic to the coconut oil... not sure .

    Thanks Bruce, I haven't noticed any difference and probably won't. Just wondering how much to use and is it really helpful or not. Thanks

    Ok..I did it again......:crying: I just gave both my bulldogs cocnut oil for the first time. I melted up 2 tbsp appro. for each dog and put it on their food. Now I'm reading that I should of put only about 2 tsps. instead. Is this going to hurt them? I'm scared to death..=`( Can anyone help with this question? Please and thank you. They weigh about 45 -50 lbs. for the male, and 40-45 lbs. for the female.

    Not to worry...it's just a starting dose suggestion, BTW...do not melt it in the microwave (destroys nutrients)

    They will usually eat it in the solid form but if you want to soften or liquify, put in a small jar or bowl then sit in
    a larger bowl of hot water.

    Just start back with a teaspoon each then in a couple weeks, give them 2 teaspoons each or 1 TBSP each and
    do every other day.
