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:
