How to Use Coconut Oil for Cats and Dogs

We give our pets coconut oil in their food every day and use it externally on their coats. Here’s what we do:

Our cat gets a teaspoon a day in food (we started with 1/4 of a teaspoon and worked up over a month)
Our dog (about 55 lbs) gets 2 tablespoons a day in food (we started with 1 teaspoon and worked up over a month)
To help ward off fleas, both get brushed with coconut oil every few weeks, especially in summer
For any dry skin or skin issues, we use coconut oil (or honey) on the skin as needed
Nursing puppies get coconut oil added to first foods when they start eating
