[QUOTE=LuvShepherds;9102473]I use it for my dogs for digestion, 1 tbs once a day. I havenít seen any negative results. I heard about the study and havenít looked into it in detail yet, but they said for humans. One of my dogs is on a LID diet which leaves out a lot of nutrients so I supplement her anyway. I donít think it can hurt but I donít overdo it. I would never eat it myself, but my diet is varied enough without it.[/QUOTE
The bolded. Like all things. Moderation is the key. Nothing in excess is good. I read the article and the rebuttal of the original Dr.s study saying coconut oil was good for you. The original study was done with 100% MCT derived from coconut oil. Not actual coconut oil either unrefined or refined. That is key to understanding the conflicting views. In addition, to consume the amount of actual coconut oil verses MCT used in the original study stating it's benefits, human or dog couldn't consume that much unless that's all they ate. Seriously, I don't think anyone has a real clue about most of this stuff other than to say eat as clean as you can in moderation and balance.
