Miracle In A Jar

Okay, so what does this mean for Fido? For starters, coconut oil is great at fighting germs because it is chock full of lauric acid. Lauric acid is famous for its anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. That’s right, coconut oil can kill harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi and parasites.
It stimulates and strengthens the immune system, and acts as an anti-inflammatory. This miracle in a jar kills ear mites, supports a healthy intestinal system, and when mixed with honey can help cure tracheobronchitis. It can be applied topically to the skin to clear up the nasty skin infections.Simply put, coconut oil is an all-purpose infection fighter. 

Is your dog a little over weight? Add coconut oil to his food and it will help improve the thyroid function and naturally balance hormones, as well as promote healthy skin and coat. Do your dog’s paws smell like corn chips or are their ears inflamed and always dirty? Fido may be experiencing a common digestive system yeast infection (also called Candida). The anti-fungal properties of coconut oil will kill the Candida, and can be used regularly to promote and maintain a strong immune system.

With so many brands of coconut oil out there, how do you know which will deliver the full health benefits?

Do your homework. There are many varieties of coconut oil, in a range of
prices and quality. Be prepared to pay more for a higher-quality oil, but the cost is well worth it. One such brand is CocoTherapy Coconut Oil. Don’t be fooled. Although packaged for pets, this top-shelf oil is actually human-grade coconut oil. The pet labeling helps in providing dosing information specifically for animals.

Also, make an effort to purchase coconut oil in a glass jar versus plastic or other packaging. Plastic chemicals can leak into the oil; oils can swell polyethylene, and therefore some of this substance may leak into the oil.
