11 Key Benefits Of Using Coconut Oil For Your German Shepherd
Dog owners have discovered the benefits of using coconut oil.  Some vets and researchers are now saying a daily dose of coconut oil is an excellent way to increase your pet’s nutrition and prevent many diseases.  

Research has confirmed that the Lauric acid found in coconut oil, is the same fatty acid contained in mother’s milk that builds and protects the immune system in newborn infants, and it has the same health effect on our dogs.  

The list of ailments that are being cured with coconut oil is growing as more reports from dog owners are coming in. 

The recommended oral dose of coconut oil is one teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight. 

To avoid loose stools begin with ¼ teaspoon and build up over 3 or 4 weeks. 
You can apply coconut oil both orally and topically. Many diseases and maladies our dogs suffer from can be cured with one jar of coconut oil. 

I recommend using “virgin coconut oil” since it is unrefined and free of chemicals. 

Coconut oil is inexpensive, and one jar lasts a long time.
