What do you use it for? Do you use it like a supplement for fish oil? Is it to help with allergies and skin issues or does it have other purposes?

Thanks,
Stephanie

Hi Stephanie! I used to give my chi's fish oil daily but it made Lola vomit, so I started giving coconut oil I stead for skin, coat, and allergies. I don't give it daily tho, just every few days. I take one of the sojo bones and dip it in there so they get it as a treat.

I just put some on my finger and let Chloe lick it off a few times a week. We also give salmon oil.

I alternate between Coconut Oil and Olive Oil.
Wanting to get some Hempseed Oil. A pet nutritionist
told me its the Best to use for an animal. (dog)
Try to use only Organic Oils.
My pet nutristionist also informed me that animals (dogs)
systems CANNOT simulate Fish Oil. So I haven't used it in
a longgg time. Some may disagree with that, and I don't want
to start a controversy here (lol..) but that is what
I was told. So to try to be on the safe side I go with it.

Coconut Oil can be used to help clear Toxins out of the
dogs system. So it is a Detoxer.
Blessings.

Thanks for all the info ladies. I think I am going to add a bit to his diet routine and see if I notice a difference.

Is this a good type of the coconut oil to get and is this a fair price?

Sorry about the link. It is pure virgin organic coconut oil. In a glass mason jar. That is what I am looking for? The rest I can figure out I think.

If you have a Trader Joes nearby, they have it for $5.50 for a 16oz jar.

When all else fails, there's always Amazon!

But you are most likely to find it in the natural foods section of a grocery store.g

Oh yes, I love trader Joe's. I do a lot of shopping there for stuff like this. It is always cheaper than any place else.
