Is Coconut Good For Dogs?

Jun 23, 2020 | News | 0 comments

Did you know that coconuts have multiple health benefits for dogs? Yup – it’s true! This is one of the many reasons why we include organic shredded coconuts as an ingredient in our Lord Jameson dog treats. Not only are coconuts delicious, but as we mentioned, they’re also great for dogs.

 

3 Health Benefits of Coconuts for Dogs

1. Coconut can benefit your dog’s skin
One of the reasons why coconut is good for your dog to consume is because it can actually benefit your dog’s skin. If your dog has any skin conditions, the coconut meat might help to improve them. The anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce any dry or itchy skin, flea allergies, hot spots, or yeast infections that your dog may have. Coconut meat also has a lot of fatty acids which help to promote a healthy coat (and it also helps to make the coat super soft! It’s really just a win-win!)

 2. Coconuts boost your dog’s immune system
As you know, coconuts are super healthy (and delicious!) They help to reduce inflammation and they’re packed with tons of antioxidants that support immune systems. Amazingly, coconuts can help your dog’s body fight against bad bacteria, parasites, fungi, and even certain viruses.

3. Coconuts help to reduce inflammation

As we just mentioned, coconuts have been known to help reduce inflammation. The anti-inflammatory properties that we mentioned in our first point also help to reduce swelling and assist in healing cuts faster. Coconut meat is high in lauric acid… For those of you who aren’t super scientific, lauric acid absorbs molecules whole, which they can then use as a direct source of energy. Lauric acid can help treat your dog’s ringworm, Giardia, and yeast infections. Also, speaking of inflammation, did you know that it’s the main cause of arthritis? Yup! So, if your dog has arthritis, then try giving them some coconut to help make their joints feel better!
