What Are The Benefits of Coconut Oil For Dogs?

Coconut oil is gaining popularity with the health conscious, and we got to thinking… “Would coconut oil be beneficial for dogs, too?” The answer is yes and we look at all of the health benefits of coconut oil for dogs in this article on

Let’s talk about the benefits of coconut oil for dogs

I’ve been a fan of coconut oil for about three years now and incorporate into my daily diet. Once thought of as a “bad fat,” nutritional experts are now saying that’s not the case at all. In fact, coconut oil comes with a boat-load of benefits: it moisturizes your skin, it helps you burn fat and it helps fight infections (just to name a few awesome pluses). And this is just the tip of the iceberg. This year, I noticed that
coconut oil was also being used in certain dog foods. That got me thinking – what are the benefits of coconut oil for dogs?

What’s So Great About Coconut Oil?

It does more than give a light, mild taste to what you’re cooking with it. Coconut oil contains more than 90% of saturated fats – which was why people were so sure that it was once bad for you. As it turns out, this is the kind of saturated fat that do a body good. Most of the saturated fats found in coconut oil are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). These MCTs contain lauric acid, capric acid, caprylic acid, myristic acid and palmitic acid… and that’s where coconut oil gets its healthy boost from.

Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of coconut oil for dogs:

Digestion Benefits:

  • An overall improvement in digestion and nutrient absorption

How to Know If Your Dog Is Too Fat?

Keeping the pet well-fed is a goal shared by all responsible dog owners, but did you know obesity is just as hazardous as being too thin? If you're concerned about the pounds your pup has been packing lately, there are a few simple methods to determine if he's actually overweight.

Rib Test

  • You can learn a lot about your dog's health just by rubbing his rib cage. Lay your fingers against the sides of his body behind his shoulders and gently feel around the area. While a little fat under the skin is perfectly fine, you shouldn't need to press hard to feel each rib clearly. The pup may be over his healthy weight If you need to press firmly to feel his ribs or if the skin covering them rolls into folds larger than half an inch. You should also be able to feel his spine, hips and shoulder bones without much effort.

Body Shape

  • When looking at your dog from the side, his tummy should angle upwards in a nearly straight line towards his groin area. For most dogs, the ribs and chest should be the lowest part of their torso's profile when they stand on four legs. If your dog's tummy sags below his rib cage and doesn't slope steadily upwards towards his back legs, then your pup may be considered overweight or obese, according to The Bill Foundation. From a top-down view, your pet's body should have a slight hourglass shape. Healthy dogs have a distinct waistline in front of their hips.
Health Problems

  • Even a few pounds over the "ideal" weight for your dog can put a damper on his energy levels. If he is reluctant to exercise, or seems to run out of steam much sooner than he did in the past, then his body weight may be holding him back. Being overweight discourages him from exercising, which only accelerates excessive weight gain. Bearing too much fat inhibits his heart, lungs and digestive system. It also makes him more vulnerable to infectious diseases and joint problems.

Ask the Veterinarian

  • Take your pup in for a checkup and talk to your vet about his body weight. If he believes your pet needs to shed a few pounds, ask about safe weight loss strategies, including daily calorie allotment and meal frequency. Check the label on your pet's food to find the calorie content and recommended portion size. If you leave food your dog's bowl out all day, there's a good chance that overeating rather than unhealthy food is responsible for his weight gain. Feed your dog according to your vet's recommendations regarding daily calorie and nutrient consumption.

There's nothing quite like a mother's love.

There's nothing quite like a mother's love.

Even when you're talking about lions.

Jean-Francois Lagrot snapped these incredible shots of a lioness rescuing her struggling cub, who seems to be holding on for dear life. The perilous position of the young lion seems to have it within inches of losing its life, just before its mother comes to the rescue.

It's touching, to say the least.

The shots were taken at Kenya's Maasai Mara game reserve in August, according to MSNBC. The reserve is world famous for its astounding population of big cats, as well as zebras and gazelles. However, in recent years, the Mara has been in a bit of jeopardy as encroaching human populations have been posing a threat to the area, and closing in on animal populations.

You can see the lion cub drama play out in the slideshow below.
