By this point most of us are well aware of the benefits that coconut oil offers for our overall health. But did you know it can also be helpful for our furry best friends?!
Stanley has had itchy skin in his later years and it breaks my heart. I’ve thought of so many reasons as to why this may be, but am no expert in doggie health and just haven’t been able to figure it out. I began thinking about how great coconut oil is for us then started researching the safety and benefits for dogs. As soon as I learned the good news I called my mom and insisted that she give him some each day. He LOVES it!
