The health and nutritional benefits that can be derived from consuming coconut oil have been recognized in many parts of the world for centuries. Nutiva Virgin Coconut Oil is the richest natural source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs).

Fed to pets it may have multiple benefits including

  • Improves digestion and nutrient absorption
  • Helps control body and breath odor
  • Aids in elimination of hairballs and coughing
  • Aids healing of digestive disorders like inflammatory bowel syndrome and colitis
  • Contains powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agents that prevent infection and disease
  • Prevents and treats yeast and fungal infections, including candida
  • Promotes normal thyroid function
  • Helps prevent or control diabetes
  • Aids in arthritis relief
  • Reduces allergic reactions
  • Improves skin health and hair condition
  • Disinfects cuts and promotes wound healing
  • As an antioxidant, it is 50 times more potent than Vitamin E, 15 times more potent than carrots, and 300 times more potent than tomatoes.

Most of coconut oil’s health benefits come from medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), also known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). According to former University of Maryland biochemist and dietary fats researcher Mary Enig, PhD, “The lauric acid in coconut oil is used by the body to make the same disease-fighting fatty acid derivative monolaurin that babies make from the lauric acid they get from their mothers’ milk. The monoglyceride monolaurin is the substance that keeps infants from getting viral, bacterial, or protozoal infections.”

Coconut oil’s capric and caprylic acid have similar properties and are best known for their antifungal effects. Like lauric acid, capric acid helps balance insulin levels.

In addition to protecting the body against infection, medium-chain fatty acids are efficiently metabolized to provide an immediate source of fuel and energy, enhancing athletic performance and aiding weight loss.

Available in 15 oz (approximately 30 tbsp) and 29 oz liquid (approximately 59 tbsp).

      Dog has severe yeast infection - skin as well as gut. Helped improve his condition by about 75%. He loves to eat it and also enjoys being "greased". We all smell really good and my hands are soft!

        Coconut oil is really good for the coat and their health. My dog smelled for about 8 years and now that she is on coconut oil she doesn't smell at all. Great product and healthy although you can find other cheaper brands that are just the same.

              One way I personally use Nutive organic coconut oil is each morning for a face moisturizer and when my puppy sees me putting it on, she barks for her bite! So I give her some too! She totally loves it!

                Comments about Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil Dog & Cat Supplement:

                Coconut oil has been a long time daily regimen for my dogs. The effects of this wonder product are best seen in our foster dogs! The first thing I love is it REDUCES BODY ODOR! It helps reduce the "stinky" smell and gives a more neutral scent to the skin. It also adds much needed oil and shine to the skin and coat, without making it greasy. I notice the fastest results when I add coconut oil and other natural remedies to a new foster's diet.

                  I have 2 Borzoi which both have some diabetic issues, but 1 has pancreatic issue, causes pain at times. Since using this product and vitamin/enzymes for Senior Dogs, they have both shown improvement. Changing their diet to natural and including these have made quite a difference, they eat all their food (home cooked yams, rice, etc.) I don't like giving them drugs, and healing starts from the inside. Glad I found this website.

                  Was surprised by the consistency of this product. Is like Crisco, but my dog loves the smell/taste. Purchased this to improve my dog's skin. Haven't seen a huge difference after a several weeks of use, but will continue using as it might take longer and she loves eating this.

                    Several years ago I started using this to treat my African Grey parrot for Giardia and mites it worked very well!! When I became a dog owner I decided to try it instead of heartworm and flea and tick treatments, which after all are a pesticide! Ten years later my dogs have never had ticks fleas or heartworm. My vet still can not believe it. We live on a large acreage and my dogs simply never have any type of parasite. Their coats are beautiful the do not have any type of foul odor. The benefits are endless and no ill effects. I add a tablespoon to their foood daily.

                          I started adding about a melted tablespoon of the coconut oil into about 6 ounces of wet cat food. At first my cats were resistant/reluctant, but I persisted and now that are eating it without a problem. I started this because my one cat max has terrible allergies and my other cat willow is allergic to seafood so I couldn't use a fish oil supplement. They only eat grain free high end wet food but I thought they needed something a little "extra" as well. How amazing this stuff is. Max had a bald patch from scratching. After putting this actually on the spot for two weeks, the hair has grown back. Also he is scratching alot less and is on the mend. I love all of the oil's holistic and healing properties...I am always trying to find holistic solutions to health problems and this is a great one. It is great for its antioxidant properties and it is naturally anti viral and anti fungal so it can prevent infections! Its a wonder product. Oh and I also use it as a moisturizer for myself! Please only use ORGANIC coconut oil.
