Coconut contains medium chained triglycerides, metabolised in a different manner to other triglycerides. This fat is used as a source of energy transported directly to the liver rather than being stored as fat. 50% of the special saturated fat in coconut is Laurin. Research shows that Laurin can be converted in the body to Monolaurin, which has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.
Coconut is also relatively low in protein and ideal for those on restricted protein diets. If your pet has allergies, scurfy skin or a rash then it’s a fabulous hypoallergenic treat to feed your pet.
Caution: we advise you to introduce coconut gradually to your dog's diet as the high fat content may cause gastrointestinal side effects if too many are consumed
