Coconut Oil as a Dietary Supplement

Using coconut oil as a dietary supplement is a great way to improve the health and wellbeing of your beloved 4 legged family members. There are serveral ways that coconut oil can be introduced to your dog’s diet. Firstly, and most obviously you can simply feed the solid oil straight from your hand or place in your dog’s bowl with their usual food. If you regularly cook food for your dog you can use CocoMutts as a much healthier oil to cook your dog’s food with. Most dogs love the taste of coconut, so unlike many other supplements, you shouldn’t have any trouble getting your dog to eat CocoMutts Virgin Coconut Oil.

Coconut oil consists of over 90% saturated fats. Most of the saturated fats in coconut oil are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). The main component of which is lauric acid (found in mothers breast milk), followed by capric acid and caprylic acid.

Most of the benefits come from the MCTs. The lauric acid in coconut oil has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti fungal properties. Capric and Caprylic acid have similar properties and are best known for their anti-fungal effects. This means that coconut oil is great for treating and preventing many digestive disorders and infections such as IBS and Colitis.

MCTs are efficiently metabolized to provide an immediate source of energy, enhancing athletic performance. The MCTs in coconut oil balance the thyroid, which can also help overweight dogs lose weight.

When fed regularly, CocoMutts can help to improve arthritis and reduce joint pain, help to prevent and control diabetes, improves overall skin and coat condition, improves digestion and nutrient absorption and reduce both bad breath and doggy odour.

Coconut Oil as a Topical Treatment

Using coconut oil as a topical treatment can help your dogs in many ways. Applying CocoMutts directly to your dog’s coat and skin has huge advantages. By applying a small amount to the palm of your hands and gently massaging it into your dog’s coat and skin, your dog will achieve a smooth glossy coat and smell great.

Coconut oil significantly reduces protein loss by penetrating the hair and getting deep into the follicles providing nourishment, healing damaged hair and encouraging re-growth. If your dog goes for any routine procedure at the vets, such as neutering, a small patch is usually shaved on one or both legs. CocoMutts is the perfect treatment to use to encourage hair growth and reduce itching. If your dog sadly requires any more invasive surgery, then CocoMutts can also help to heal and due to its antibacterial properties, can also help to prevent infection, reducing the risk of further visits to the vet.

Coconut oil is great for dogs that suffer with dry itchy skin, eczema, flea allergies or contact dermatitis. Working as a natural moisturiser it can help to prevent and heal dry hair and skin, cracked paws and works great on hotspots. It can also be used to soothe and heal bites and stings picked up whilst out playing in the park. In the summer months, ticks can be a real problem for our furry friends. It’s very important that ticks are removed properly (seek a vets advice if required). Once removed you can use CocoMutts to disinfect the bite area and prevent infection.

With its antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, CocoMutts can be used to disinfect cuts on the body whilst providing a protective layer that prevents the growth of bacteria on the exposed area. CocoMutts will also speed up the healing time of damaged tissue.

Coconut oil is a great addition to any dogs diet, whatever the breed, size and age.

Scampers Natural Pet Store is located on the A142 Soham By Pass, between Ely and Newmarket and only 15 miles from Cambridge.
