Medicine Cabinet

There are some things in life you need to have. What is a staple in my cabinet?

Coconut oil.

I know, everyone is talking about it, but all of the benefits claimed are true. Not just for humans, but for dogs as well. It is an absolutely amazing oil that solidifies when it gets cold and becomes liquid the warmer it gets. It is anti bacterial and fungal and does wonders on wounds. I have had dogs who got spayed or neutered and the wound swelled and became inflamed. When I applied coconut (and nothing else) to it about three times daily, the wound was completely healed after two or three days. Now that’s something I can’t even claim for some of the antibiotics I have used in the past on myself or my dogs.

It is great for wounds, but also a perfect supplement to add to your dogs‘ food. My dogs eat raw food, but this can be added to anything or just fed right off a spoon. Dogs generally go crazy for the taste – mine can’t get enough of it! It does wonders for their over all health, especially bad breath, skin and coat (you will be blinded by their shiny coats). Adding one spoon per day to their diet is an optimal way to prevent sickness and other ailments to even happen. The main thing you need to pay attention to is that the coconut oil you buy is raw/cold-pressed.

I may write more on this topic in the future, but I can promise you a post on what exactly I feed my dogs in the very near future.

What do you feed your dogs? Have they ever eaten coconut oil or used it on wounds? Let me know in the comments!
