I asked a few weeks ago about "Why coconut oil" after reading all the posts about dosages and never got an answer. I bought some and give it to my GSD but I still don't know why it's good or better than fish oil.

Traveler's Mom - First, I never saw that post. If you have a question, sometimes you have to bump it up because you may have posted when the board was slow and then it gets lost.

Coconut oil is not better than fish oil. It's different. Coconut oil has many properties that are great. More reports are out all the time on new uses for coconut oil. Fish oil is for Omega 3's, which coconut oil does not have. We need this to balance our diets high in O6's which is mostly due to higher grain intake and our meat animals being fed corn rather than grass.

I've been a lurker here for a very long time and gotten such a wealth of info on here which has been brilliant. I always do a site search for literally any question I have in my head regarding my dogs and there almost always has been someone before me whos asked a similar question. So the wealth of info is definitely there. Sometimes I've had to trudge through a lot of other peoples drama to find my answers though. Which is why I think it would be nice to have a bit of good, non confrontational banter with people on my own threads too. Like right now. Thank you for giving me the time of day!
I went through the same thing. Posted a lot, then stopped completely when they all just gathered dust. Came back, starting posting a little more. Now I don't care. I share some things, ask a few questions... but for the most part, I just do my own research and ask more local people questions.

There are a lot of great people here, and even more knowledge. It's a great place for learning, sharing, and understanding our breed..... when you get answers.

Don't take it personal, it happens to the majority of us. Sometimes it's best to send a PM instead of making a thread. Those are usually answered pretty quick and you don't have any bickering between members. Works great for important questions.

Btw, welcome to the forum!

Thank you, Michelle! I understand now.

And thank you to Rua. If you had not opened this thread, I would still be in the dark about coconut oil.

Pedigree questions...people generally sit and wait for the 5 people on the forum that actually have enough knowledge on pedigrees/dogs to comment on 3rd 4th and possibly 5th generation dogs.

Feeding questions...I know I get annoyed when a person won't just do a search of the forum to possibly find their answer. Not saying you didn't do that, but the whole "am I feeding my puppy too much" thing has been asked a few times before.

Aggression thread...interesting one, I'm guessing most people probably said get the first dog fixed before you consider getting a second one, and since many don't have experience with that kind of situation they just didn't comment.

But if you commented in a thread and got "ignored." I'd consider that a good thing, it means people generally agree with you and have nothing to dispute with what you wrote. I've rarely done a quote and ^agree thing. Kind of a waste of space and time in my opinion to just repeat what someone else has stated.
The Pedigree question, I have since learned to PM one of those 5 people.

Yeah, I've seen the billion "How much to feed my pup" questions. I was more curious as to whether or not Purizon compared very well to Orijen in terms of quality. But I can't expect much from that thread, because I honestly think I'm the only one in the is entire forum who has ever used Purizon. Ah the joys of being on an Island....lol

As for the aggression one...that one is a work in progress actually. Fortunately for me, my reactive female IS fixed, and getting a much more temperament stable dog in the house has been really really good for her. So far, I've lucked out in that regard, but it's early days still. Watch this space!

Haha! You're welcome! Actually, I've learned something new here as well. It never even occured to me to give a dog coconut oil.

I've always done olive and flaxseed myself. Might give the coconut a go!

Olive oil is higher in O6 and flaxseed is unstable so it's shelf life is very short. Coconut oil is good for everyone! It helps with cholesterol, anti bacterial, anti fungal...lots of stuff.

So is flaxseed bad to give if it's gone out of date?

I don't know. I just know that it has a short shelf life for O3's. If you do a google search, you can find lots of info on it. I only feed it to my horse in the form of Horseshine which has Vit. E added to help stabilize it.
