Ways coconut oil can benefit your pet's health:
Skin & coat health: Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids, including lauric acid, which can help promote a shiny and healthy coat in pets. It may also help alleviate dry skin and reduce itching, making it beneficial for pets with skin conditions or allergies.
Digestion support: Coconut oil may have mild antibacterial and antiviral properties, which can help improve digestion and support the immune system. It may also aid in the absorption of nutrients from food.
Dental health: Some pet owners brush their pets' teeth with coconut oil as it can help reduce bacteria in the mouth and improve overall dental hygiene.
Energy boost: Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which can provide a quick energy source for active pets. It may particularly benefit working dogs or those engaging in strenuous physical activities.
Brain health: MCTs in coconut oil support healthy brain function and may benefit senior pets or those with cognitive issues.
Topical benefits: When applied directly onto the skin, it can help conditions like hot spots, bites, stings, or itchy, dry skin.
Lauric Acid – along with another fatty acid, caprylic acid, that give coconut its antiviral and antimicrobial properties. Our coconut oil is roughly half lauric acid, so it has about 3.5 grams per teaspoon. We've already mentioned the anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties of coconut oil. The lauric acid is also supposed to fight off viruses.
*Mixing tip - mix solidified coconut oil with powdered supplements to create a yummy paste that will stick to your pet's dry kibble or food.*
Oral: Feed once per day to help support good health.
Topical: Warm the product between your hands until melted and apply to the desired area once a day.
My dogs all love raw food. The oldest was 12 when I switched them over and she has never been healthier. Our dogs all have their own favorite feast, and there is a great selection at Heronview, so there is always something new for them to try. Thanks so much to Lori and all the staff at Heronview.
Raw is by far the BEST decision we’ve made for our dogs and we will go to Heronview for life! They have an incredible selection of proteins, a great range of supplements and their prices are fantastic! I highly recommend you give Lori a visit!
Not sure about where to get started? Stop in and have a conversation, Lori has a starter plan suited to your furry family member. Not feeding raw? The store will still have something for you, from natural pet care products to on-site dehydrated treats your dogs will love.
My Havanese rescue, Sammy, was almost 7 when I adopted him. I noticed that every time he stretched he would creak and crack and I could hear all his joints popping, but I figured that was just how he was and I didn’t really think too much more of it at the time as it didn’t seem to bother him. I had been researching raw for a bit (not because of his creakiness, but just because I had heard about it and thought it might be the wise way to go). Anyway, I decided to put him on a raw, species-appropriate diet from Heronview, including Feedsentials and Shemp as advised by Lori. About two to three weeks after the switch I incidentally noticed that when Sammy stretched he didn’t make any nasty noises, so I made a point of paying attention the next few times, and guess what? His joints completely stopped making any noises at all, even first thing in the morning with lots of big stretches. Clearly, something was amiss or inappropriate in his diet and the switch to raw had rectified the situation. I was pleasantly surprised and haven’t looked back since.
When we discovered Heronview, we realized that raw feeding does not have to be pricy. We love the fact that you can buy a variety of meats packed in small amounts. One day Ellie will have ground chicken with bone, offal and tripe, the next she will get game, a bit of tongue, half a chicken carcass, some offal and tripe, then the day after it will be time for beef. We have also been giving her the K9 Feed-sentials. I wish I lived closer to Heronview and could visit the store more often. The staff is very knowledgable, they all have raw fed dogs and cats of their own and are more than happy to take time with every client. Being a city person, coming out to Heronview and seeing all of Lori’s animals, makes each visit a treat.
