Sunny For Coconut OIl And Pets (1)

Coconut Oil For Pets

From caring for your luscious locks to leaving skin radiant and glowing, we’re sure you’ve heard all about the virtues of using our coconut oil as a beauty product.

However, did you know that it can also be used to groom and care for your four-legged friends too? Whether it’s for pampered pooches, coddled cats, or even horses, we like to use our coconut oil to spoil our pets.

How Can Coconut Oil Help My Pet?

The uses of coconut oil for all animals are endless in supporting and maintaining health. Here are some of our favourites:

Give a Glossy Coat

If your dog is looking less show dog and more matted and bedraggled (we blame it on the jumping in muddy puddles), then this could be the one for you. Our coconut oil can give your dog as glossy a mane as your own! It’ll even help you to run a brush through their hair a lot easier.

If your pooch loves to roll in mud, then coconut oil also has the added benefit of deodorising that lingering smell, leaving them fresher than a daisy – and that’s never a bad thing, right?

Support Digestion

If your animal struggles with poor digestion, then why not try a spoonful of Lucy Bee Coconut Oil with their dinner?

Help Get Rid of Hairballs

If you’re a cat lover, coconut oil is even known to help with hairballs.

Maintain Health

Coconut oil’s beneficial properties can also aid in keeping your precious pets healthy.

How Do I Use Coconut Oil On Dogs And Cats?

Your dog or cat will most likely love the taste of coconut oil. In fact, we’ve watched many animals gobble it up in a matter of seconds – it seems that they’re just as nutty for coconut as we are at Lucy Bee!

So, how do you go about using it? Well, we simply like to mix a little bit of oil in with their food and watch them reap the benefits.The recommended administration rate is around a teaspoon of coconut oil for every 10 pounds of dog.

However, we suggest that you start with around 1/4 of that and build it up over a few weeks – introducing too much too soon can upset their stomachs, and no one wants that!

For adult cats, we suggest 1/2 a teaspoon to start, increasing to around 1-2 teaspoons in a few weeks’ time.

Meanwhile, for precious little kittens, try starting with ¼ teaspoon and build it up to a whole teaspoon over time.

If you don’t own a cat or a dog, then don’t worry - we’ve also heard of people giving our coconut oil to all manner of other pets and animals, whether it be horses, cows or even goats.

If your animal loves Lucy Bee as much as us, then be sure to get in touch and send us a picture!

I bought this to add to the dog’s food but I’m also using it for mine too. It's well worth the money and I will buy again.

This stuff is lovely. It has a great mild smell and a lovely taste. Yum. So far we have used for roasting potatoes and chicken and its great. We also add a teaspoon of it to our golden retriever’s dinner every day. He is 13 this week and his coat is no longer dry, it is beautifully soft and glossy.

Fitness Tips

You don’t have to belong to a gym to keep fit. ‘Mountain climbers’ are great to strengthen your core, as well as improving agility and coordination, and can be done at home. From a press-up position with straight back and core engaged, bring one knee to your chest with toes just off the ground, then alternate legs and increase your pace. Perform as many as possible for 30-60 seconds
