The coconut, also known as the “tree of life”, has been found to have many benefits not only for humans, but for our best friends. Many diseases and ailments, like yeast infections, smelly coats, cuts that have been infected, and even cracked paws, can all be cured with just a jar of coconut oil. When all other forms of diet remedies have failed, it is time to try out this natural medicine for your dog. Lauric acid, a medium chain fatty acid, can help prevent bacterial and viral infections. This is most commonly found in a mother’s milk and builds the immune system.
According to an article by HealingNaturallyByBee: Coconut oil may provide an effective defense against many troublesome parasites including giardia. Like bacteria and fungi, giardia can’t stand up against MCFA found in coconut oil. Research has confirmed the effectiveness of MCFA in destroying giardia and possibly other protozoa 5,6,7 By using coconut oil and other coconut products every day, you may be able to destroy giardia before it can establish a toehold. Coconut oil can be given internally or applied externally, and can provide remedies for many skin infections. It can disinfect cuts and improve your dog’s general skin and coat condition, making it healthier. Wounds also heal faster with coconut oil, and it helps to deodorize your dog’s skin and clear up some rashes as well. Many vets and researchers today are recommending the regular use of coconut oil for dogs because it is an excellent source of nutrients.
Brewers Yeast – Not to be confused with any other type of yeast, Brewers Yeast is an inactive yeast that is a popular dietary supplement. Brewers Yeast has several uses for dogs. It is a source of B vitamins such as biotin, trace minerals such as zinc, proteins and amino acids. The amino acids and vitamins can help make a dog’s skin healthier and its coat shinier.
Brewers Yeast is often recommended by holistic vets to help strengthen dogs’ immune systems. According to the Encyclopedia of Natural Pet Care, Brewers Yeast was shown to protect chickens from salmonella-tainted feed. Brewers Yeast is also a common natural remedy for dogs with fleas. It is believed to work against fleas because it contains sulfur compounds that make your dog less palatable to them. It’s recommended to give ½ teaspoon Brewer’s yeast daily per 10 pounds of body weight. I also use Brewers Yeast in my Frosty Pumpkin Dog Treats. See recipe above.
Salmon/Fish Oil: Fish oil is probably the most important supplement you can add to your dog’s diet, regardless of what type of diet you feed. EPA and DHA, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, provide widespread benefits, but they are fragile and unlikely to survive storage in bags of kibble. Proven benefits from EPA and DHA include: improving the coat and skin, reducing inflammation due to conditions such as arthritis, allergies & inflammatory bowel disease, regulating the immune system, boosting those that are suppressed and calming overactive immune systems for dogs with allergies or autoimmune diseases, aiding in mental development of fetuses and puppies, improving cognitive function in older dogs, lowering blood pressure & triglycerides, providing support for dogs with kidney disease, heart disease, and cancer, and promoting weight loss in overweight dogs.
CAUTION: Fish oil should be protected from light, heat, and air. Store liquid fish oil in opaque/dark colored bottles in the refrigerator. Purchase amounts that can be used within one or two months to avoid rancidity. If you notice an “off” odor, discard the oil.
