Coconut Oil For Pet’s Skin Condition

Most of the saturated fats in coconut oil come from Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). The MCTs are the source of most of the benefits of coconut oil. One of the MCTs is lauric acid – lauric acid has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties.

Regularly adding coconut oil to your pet’s diet helps improve his skin and coat condition. It can also be applied directly to your pet’s skin to help moisturize his skin and clear up skin conditions such as hot spots. In addition, coconut oil may resolve problems including eczema, allergies and yeast and fungal infections. We  know of coconut oil’s anticancer properties because when researchers feed it to lab animals or apply it on their skin in experimental conditions, they don’t get cancer. Also, coconut oil neutralizes a variety of toxins because animals are protected from these poisons if given the oil.   Coconut oil has long been known for it healing effect on the skin when applied topically. Dry, rough, itchy skin becomes smooth and soft within a matter of days. Infections, warts, wounds, and such heal remarkably well with the daily application of coconut oil.
