Just heard on the news how beneficial coconut oil is the the break down & prevention of plaque on teeth. It was said that they are going to look into it to start adding it to toothpaste. Haha, I already use it when I make toothpaste for my kids.

Sorry I can't find the link. I'll keep looking & post when I find it.

That's awesome! I just started giving it to my dogs, and they all seem to enjoy it. Lola has had 4 teeth extracted and she won't let me brush them so it's great to hear it helps with dental hygiene. ;)

I have read that green tripe also contains enzymes that help to keep teeth clean. My two get it several times a week and it is possibly their favourite meal.
Coconut oil is just amazing stuff, I don't know what I would do without it.

Coconut oil? Or green tripe?
I get my coconut oil from my local health food shop, it is organic virgin coconut oil by Essential and is £3.49. You can get it online, but the postage is expensive as it is in a glass jar. You can also get it in supermarkets in cities in the ethnic foods aisle.

Thanks for the info on coconut oil. Is there one brand that is preferable? I did a search on the net, but there is so much to choose from. Any recommendations?

Can't wait to get some! sounds like it's so good for them.

That link doesn't work for me. As long as it is food grade it will be fine. You can get it in places like superdrug just for hair/skin use and it has added perfume. You just want plain, virgin coconut oil.

No, I use it as well as. It can also be applied topically, I use it on Harleys sore spots from his allergies, and massage it in to help with coat regrowth.

Oh weird.. Well the ingredients are just 100% Pure Coconut Oil, is this the same as virgin coconut oil?

I am confused. How exactly do you give them coconut oil? Do you just add it to the food?

Will have a look into it as well.

Does this one seem ok?
Pure Coconut Oil | Holland and Barrett

There was another one which stated that you can use it for cooking (but the jar was quite big) so that should be ok too then, right?
