Why not give coconut oil a try and introduce it to your dog? It offers many benefits for your dog and is more sustainable and less toxic source of oils than fish. Please note: It is important to follow the proper guidelines. As with most things, too much of a good thing...
We recommend to mix a bit of coconut oil in with their food. You can watch them reap the benefits. The recommended dose is around a teaspoon of coconut oil for every 4kg of dog. However, we suggest you start with 1/4 of that and build up over a few weeks.
If you don’t own a dog, don’t worry - we’ve also heard of people feeding coconut oil to all manner of other pets and animals, whether it be cats, horses, cows and even gerbils.
