We love treats! But what we REALLY love, are treats that have nutritional benefits for our four-legged family members. We recently met a fantastic company, Distinctive Dog, from Washington who grabbed the bull by the horns (or, dog by the paws) and developed a line of gourmet dog treats built on the benefits of coconut oil. Their passion for their dogs' health was the driving force behind their business - what is not to love about that!

Cocount oil is not new to our culinary vocabulary but it is a RARE ingredient in a dog's food pantry. And, after learning more about this ingredient, we have one thing to say - what a shame!

Coconut oil contains more than 90% saturated fat and is one of the few foods that can be classified as a "superfood". This has to do with the fat type; most of cocounut oil fat is MCTs (medium chain triglycerides). MCT is good fat - fat that provides an array of benefits which include digestion improvement, immune system support, metabolic function that assists with weight loss, skin and coat health and thyroid health.

A few highlights of coconut oil benefits for your tail-waggin' pooch:

HEALTHY SKIN & COAT:

  • Clears up eczema
  • Aids flea allergies, contact dermatitis and itchy skin
  • Minimizes doggy odor
  • Reduces allergic reactions
  • Creates sleek and glossy coats
  • Prevents and treats yeast and fungal infections
  • Promotes wound healing

IMPROVES DIGESTION:

  • Improves digestion
  • Increases nutrient absorption
  • Helps with colitis and inflammatory bowl syndrome
  • Reduces or eliminates bad breath

"SUPERFOOD" BENEFITS:

  • Assists with weight loss
  • Powerful antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal agents
  • Balances insulin and promotes normal thyroid function
  • Helps prevent or control diabetes

Wow. There really isn't much more we can say about that, besides ... what are you waiting for!? Get these superfood-packed Distinctive Dog treats into your shopping cart! The price is great, the quality even better and every single flavor was DEVOURED by Sitstay dogs.
