Problems with Coconut Oil
After reading MANY threads on the greatness of coconut oil, I picked up a jar to try with Puppy. She was already doing super on Orijen (shiny soft coat, bouncy stools, etc) but none the less, I wanted to try the coconut.
Coinciding the coconut oil, she started getting a rash on her belly. Took her to the vet yesterday, and she said they are burst pimples. She said when young dogs get these, they usually ask about changes in diet. Recent changes are just the coconut oil, and some rotisserie chicken for training treats.
She suggested I take out the coconut oil and give dog 3 weeks to normalize. Vet also suggested if I wanted to give her a boost for Omega 3s, go for Orijen 6 fish after I've let her body normalize.
I wasn't particularly worried about Pup's orijen 3's prior to starting coconut oil since she is a quality diet with good Omega 3's...I just wanted to reap all the other benefits of coconut oil.
Has anyone else experienced this? Kind of bummed out since the coconut oil smelled SO GREAT and she loved it.
