Are you giving your pet omega-3s but skipping out on the coconut oil?
You may want to re-consider as research shows that adding the MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) to your dog’s diet “[h]elps the body use essential omega-3 fatty acids more efficiently and increase omega-3 concentrations in the brain.” (Taha et al. (2009)
"...coconut oil fed as 10% or less of a dog’s diet poses no digestive or other health issues." - Dr. Jean Dodds
Looking for another reason to add coconut oil to your pet’s diet?
How about it will make your smart pup even smarter! Coconut oil is scientifically proven to be able to improve brain function in dogs, especially the older ones.
A study conducted on beagles that were fed a diet supplemented with MCTs, showed their cognitive ability improved significantly. The dogs showed improvement in learning-related tasks after only about two weeks of consuming the supplemented diet!
But maybe you read somewhere on the Internet that coconut oil was bad for dogs? Don’t worry.
Studies in dogs show that coconut oil fed as 10% or less of a dog’s diet poses no digestive or other health issues. – Dr. Jean Dodds’ Hemopet, Petlifeline, Hemolife & Nutriscan, Canine Nutrigenomics (Aldrich,2009)
P.S. – Please make sure when using a source of omega-3s, it is a clean source as research is showing most products on the market are full of toxins!
