Term Definition
Coconut Oil

Coconut oil can be found in health food stores and should be purchased only in the "virgin" or cold pressed from. Partially hydrogenated coconut oil destroys the antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and alters the fat structure by combining fatty acids with hydrogen producing unhealthy trans fats. The primary fatty acid in coconut oil is lauric acid, with lesser amounts of capric acid and caprylic acid. There are many claims that lauric acid helps the body fight viruses, bacteria, protozoans and fungus infections, and when used topically speeds up healing. Read about coconut oil or talk to your veterinarian to draw your own conclusions. Many Dog owners feed small amounts (1/2teaspoon to 4teaspoons a day) depending on the age and size of the Dog. They use it to improve coat, help with skin conditions and aid digestion. It is used topically to fight ear infections, small abrasions and dermatitis.
