We’ve all heard about the health benefits surrounding coconut oil for humans, but what about for your domestic animals? Giving your cat or dog coconut oil in moderate amounts can actually provide them with similar benefits as the ones we experience as humans. For every 10 lbs, give your furry friend a quarter-teaspoon of coconut oil within their meal. This can help decrease the amount of inflammation they experience while also improving their ability to absorb nutrients among other health advantages.
- The popularity of coconut oil as a natural remedy is increasing exponentially and its health benefits in animals is also getting popular.
- Lauric acid and caprylic acid in coconut oil has health benefits for dogs and cats because they exert antimicrobial and antifungal effects.
- Dogs and cats can be given coconut oil but one precaution to take is that when giving it to them, you have to take account of their weight.
“Plus, combining other omega-3 oils like fish oil and krill oil, which are rich in essential fatty acids, with coconut oil may assist in combatting inflammatory responses. Before utilizing coconut oil for your pets, however, ensure that you pick 100 percent organic, cold-pressed and human-grade coconut oil.”
