Wondering why coconut oil is such a healthy addition to your dog’s diet?

 It all starts with the medium chain fatty acids …

 Medium Chain Fatty Acids

 There are a lot of different fats you can feed your dog. And those fats carry a variety of health benefits. 

Coconut oil is a great way to add to your dog’s diet and take advantage of those benefits. Here’s why. 

First of all, coconut oil is made up of a mixture of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Together these 3 fats contain an impressive list of fatty acids. Many of these are Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs), including 48% lauric acid, 8% caprylic acid and 7% capric acid, plus myristic and palmitic acids. 

Coconut oil also contains about 2% linoleic acid (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and about 6% oleic acid (monounsaturated fatty acids). 

It’s the MCFAs in coconut oil, especially the lauric acid, that give it such a powerful punch when it comes to your dog’s health.
