There are myriad wonderful uses for unrefined coconut oil, but have you thought about using it for your dog? Coconut oil is unlike other oils, because when it’s applied to hair -- or in this case, fur -- it doesn’t just coat the follicles, it actually deep moisturizes. So a little coconut oil rubbed into your pup's fur can help moisturize and prevent flaking. It smells good, too! And there’s no worry if he licks up a little oil off his fur; it’s totally safe to eat and actually good for your pooch.
