onyx'girl I mix up coconut oil(that has been liquified) local honey, peanut butter and yogurt and then freeze it in ice cube trays. My dogs get a cube every few days with their raw meal.

Harry and Lola try and get organic virgin coconut oil that is unrefined, unbleached and non deodorised, you should be able to get one at a health food store.

Nikitta Ok I'm confused. I would like to try this on Xerxes. He seems to scratch a lot. Do I get refined or unrefined?

Now coconut oil is a hot trend , and the buyer has to know that there are all sorts of quality of oil available .
The oil I use has unrefined fish , hemp and coconut all together.
Monkeys take coconut oil?

I've been giving my dogs (2 gsd, 1 mal) coconut oil. They love it and have soft shiny coats. They seem to love it as they keep licking their food bowls even after they've consumed their food. I have not encountered any problems with it.

Okin I feed Athena some of the Trader Joe's coconut oil for the first time last night. I put it on top of her normal meal. At first she looked at it like "what is this crap??". Then she tried it and ended up licking her bowl for five minutes after all her food was gone. I guess she likes it!

Harry and Lola I bought some yesterday and gave them each 1/4 teaspoon, so far so good and can't wait to see the benefits (I am now realising how much they actually scratch themselves)

I got Niugini organic virgin coconut oil, comes from Papua New Guinea and is unrefined, unbleached and not deodorised.

It is not solid, it is a clear liquid but I suspect this has something to do with our temperature at the moment. Does it go solid in the cooler weather if in the fridge?

mego I wish Lara could play with a coconut lol

She loves it in her food. I just scoop a few spoonfuls into it in the morning. I get the jar at Trader Joes. She smells so wonderful and she's soft. When I cuddle with her she makes the perfect soft pillow
