Coconut Oil for Dog's Skin and Health

By Dr. Becker

  • Coconut oil has antimicrobial, antifungal and antibacterial properties, and can have profound benefits for your dog's skin health, digestion, brain function, nutrient absorption and thyroid function
  • In this video, Dr. Becker is back in her kitchen at home to demonstrate how she performs coconut oil treatments on her elderly dog, Rosco.
  • Rosco, like almost all senior dogs (and senior humans), has issues with his skin and toenails. Part of the problem is Rosco’s Cushing’s disease and hypothyroidism, but it’s also simply a fact that as pets and people age, the skin tends to get flaky and the nails tend to get funky.
  • Dr. Becker manages Rosco’s skin and nail issues with weekly baths followed by coconut oil treatments. Coconut oil helps reduce flaking and improves the integrity of the skin. It also supports the lipid barrier, which makes skin healthier and more resistant to pathogens.
  • The treatment is quite simple. Just scoop the oil from the container and apply it to your pet like a mask, insuring to coat every inch of skin and nails, especially problem areas. Allow the mask to absorb into the skin for five minutes or so, and feel free to let your pet lick the oil as you wait. After about five minutes, do a light application of shampoo, and another light rinse.
  • Coconut oil treatments leave Rosco’s “old man” skin incredibly soft and in a healthier condition, and we’re sure it will do the same for your pet!
