Default coconut oil? fish oil?

So, after many long months, i have been able to finally get my poor puppy's stool under control, but now doc says he has a wonderful case of the seasonal allergies

My question is, has anyone here tried, and had success, with adding coconut oil to your pets diet? I am literally hearing nothing but good things coming from it from what i have read.

Helps dry skin? Itchy skin? Inflamed skin? Bacterial problems? Ear infections? Yeast infections? Cures doggy breath? If its this good why isnt EVERYONE using it?

Any personal experiences/things to watch out for?

I wrote an article on coconut oil recently:

K9 Instinct - Dog training, dog obedience training, raw diet, raw feeding, minimal vaccines: The benefits of COCONUT OIL for dogs!

Those benefits are indeed true, but there of definitely occasions when a dog doesn't really show physical signs of benefit. Coconut oil is very healthy, regardless. The only way to test how it will benefit your pup is to try it!

Koda gets both, he is also on raw diet.

He gets 1000 mg of fish oil a day and 1 tablespoon of EV coconut oil, + vit/minerals.
