    Yes! Our vet mentioned coconut oil when our whippet was very ill. Darcey gets a little mixed in her food, and topically as needed. This was the food dose I remembered reading, and to work up to it to avoid digestion issues.

    This article sounds a little grandiose and needs citations, but it is similar to credible sources I have read: http://www.dogster.com/lifestyle/ten...your-dogs-diet

    My Registered Dietician says it's great for humans too, so I'm giving it a trial for specific issues. (I'm a total nerd and always ask my doctors and veterinarians before trying anything new.)

    On the nutritionists recommendation, I use coconut oil in my coffee. At first I thought it made it taste kind of oily, but I"m used to it now and it doesn't bother me.

    I use Salmon Oil capsules. It's funny to watch Maisy mouth it around until it pops and she can chew it up. I've heard of people using Emu Oil but I don't know if that is external only or internal too. Never heard of using Coconut Oil for dogs.

    I do! Aside from being an itch relieve, it also reduces odor and bad breath. I use 100% virgin coconut oil.
