Coconut Oil Powder: The eighth ingredient is coconut oil powder. This addition was not only inspired and chosen for its many health benefits, but problems we have had with other coconut oil products in non-powder form. Previous coconut oil we have purchased for our dogs became moldy and was rancid. While it is suppose to be shelf stable, there are a lot of varying qualities out there and that is why we love this powdered form. All of the health benefits, with no chance of mold or rancid liquid. It is the perfect meal enhancing ingredient and is non-messy and easy to pour, in this easy to use powder form. Coconut oil has many benefits for dogs. It makes their coats glossy and sleek. It eliminates dog odor. It benefits metabolic function, weight loss, arthritis and bone health. The lauric acid in coconut oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and therefore helps to fight off viruses. The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil aid in digestion and can even help digestive disorders, as well as improve brain energy and mental function in older dogs.
