Healthy Oils for Your Dog’s Skin and Coat

Male Tibetan Terrier DogYour pet’s skin and coat are a reflection of his overall health. A soft, shiny coat indicates that your dog is healthy, but dry skin and a lusterless coat is often a sign of an underlying medical condition.

One easy way to improve your dog’s skin and coat is to boost the level of healthy oils in their diet. This can simply be achieved by adding a healthy serving of unrefined coconut oil or olive oil to your pup’s food. A serving size of about 1 teaspoon per 10lbs of body weight is a good starting point. Coconut oil can also be applied topically to dry skin areas but adding it to your dog’s food will help their skin from the inside out.

In addition to supplementing the food, you can choose treats that are rich in coconut or coconut oil such as Max & Ruffy’s treats. Five-Star Blueberry, 24 Carob Gold: Strawberry & Carob, 327 BC: Banana & Coconut and Tree of Life: Molasses & Coconut are made with coconut oil. Tree of Life also contains flax seed to boost your pet’s intake of healthy oils. All Max & Ruffy’s treats come in two sizes, so you can choose the option that best meets your dog’s size and needs.
