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.
Dosages for Pomeranians.
I recommend 1/4 of a teaspoon for every 5 lbs.
How to add coconut oil to your Pom’s diet.
A big problem in winter is that your coconut oil will solidify. Just stand the jar in warm water for a few minutes and, presto, you’ll have oil again. If your Pomeranian eats kibble of any type, make this food more palatable by warming the coconut oil to a liquid. Place the kibble in a very large storage jar, pour in the coconut oil and mix thoroughly into the kibble. It’s so easy and the kibble will be more palatable for your Pomeranian. Everything is done and you only need to feed a small amount daily for your Pom to gain many health benefits. Alternatively, the coconut oil can be mixed with a meat meal or, horrors of horrors, if you feed wet doggie food, mix the required daily amount of coconut into the wet food.
