Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a long-chain, medium-length lipid (or fatty acid) that, on its own, comprises approx. half of the total fatty acids within the coconut oil. Lauric Acid turns into an antimicrobial agent (known as Monolaurin) that can fight off yeast, viruses, bacteria and all other pathogens. If your Pomeranian has a yeast infection or infected ears and/or mouth, the use of coconut oil will kill the bacteria surrounding those areas. A serious complaint is that owners of Pomeranians can’t control their pet’s weight, regardless of how much exercise the Pom gets. Coconut oil can boost your thyroid and it also helps your Pom in the same way. It enables him to remain at a healthy weight and reduces the number of vet bills associated with problems, such as arthritis and joint pain, that occur when your Pom is overweight. Coconut oil makes it easier for your pet to properly digest the vital nutrients contained in his food. This has explained how coconut oil helps your Pom’s insides. Now to look at how it helps his outsides, on his skin and fur. If his skin is dry and itchy or is hot, you can directly apply the oil and it works instantly. It can also be used on his nose and paw pads when they become dry. When bathing him, add a little of the oil to ease raw skin as a result of fleas. When added to his food, his skin becomes moisturised and his coat will look a lot better. Always have a jar of coconut oil at home to help keep your Pomeranian as healthy as possible.
