I don’t know about the safety of that if your dog licks it. But real coconut oil, in the food aisle is most likely a safer alternative. Occasionally put a half teaspoon in Kimbers food which helps with skin and coat. Putting it directly on their skin will make coat oily but maybe you can put a smaller amount?

I give my boy organic, unrefined coconut oil -- just a small amount each day. The unrefined is, I believe, the best option and is the most flavorful to dogs and people (actually tastes of coconut). He loves it but I try to not give too much since I don't want to overdo fats. I've rubbed a tiny amount into his nose a couple of times when it looked dry, but I haven't rubbed any into his coat or skin since I don't want him to transfer the greasiness onto our furniture.
