Coconut Oil is the new rave among us humans. It helps
increase metabolism, it is less likely
to clog our arteries than butter or olive oil, and it works
wonders on fungal infections,
sunburns, and dry skin.
What is not to love about Coconut oil?
What makes coconut oil rave-worthy to humans
applies to dogs and cats too!
Coconut oil consists of 90% saturated fats, most of
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). MOST of the
beneficial qualities found in coconut oil come
from these MCTs. Lauric acid is a main component
(about 40%) of the MCTs,
followed by capric acid, caprylic acid, myristic
acid and palmitic acid.
Lauric acid is exceptionally helpful,
it contains antibacterial,
antiviral, and anti-fungal properties.
Capric and Caprylic acids have similar
properties but are
best known for their anti-fungal effects.
Coconut Oil is popularized to humans for it’s
ability to help improve digestion and metabolism
as well as increase energy. MCTs are to blame!
MCT’s are efficiently metabolized to provide an
immediate source of energy and fuel. This means balance
to the thyroid! So all those overweight or lazy dogs/cats
out there will feel a change in weight and energy.
Many people mix coconut oil with their dog or cats food,
while others use it topically. Both options provide for wonderful
outcomes; improved skin and coat, immune system support,
improved digestion, allergy relief, illness prevention)
Below are a few reasons to look into using coconut oil in your animals life.
