Coconut Oil for Your Dog

Coconut oil can be applied directly to your dog for healthy skin and coat

A coconut oil skin treatment about once a week can make a big difference in the health of your dog’s skin and nails. To use coconut oil topically, simply rub a very small amount onto your hands and then gently pat the coat, run your fingers through the fur, and massage a little down onto the skin and let it be absorbed for a few minutes. After five minutes or so, rinse your dog off. If he still feels excessively greasy or oily, you can follow up with a light shampoo and rinse.
