When starting your dog on coconut oil, it is absolutely vital that you start slow. Begin slow, start with a tiny amount. Your dog needs to take time for their body to adjusts to the addition to their diet. If you start with a larger amount of coconut oil, your dog could react poorly. Side effects can include diarrhoea or greasy stools.

 

START WITH SMALL AMOUNTS

 

¼ teaspoon per day for small dogs and puppies.
1 teaspoon for large dogs, or even just a dab if your dog’s constitution is sensitive.

 

AFTER YOU’VE LET THEIR BODY ADJUST, A GENERAL GUIDELINE FOR THE OPTIMAL DOSE OF COCONUT OIL FOR DOGS IS.

 

About 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight daily
Or about 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds
Again, DO NOT start with these amounts in the beginning!
